2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
I am a soon-to-be college graduate that
is serious about quality and style. I
just traded in my 99 Nissan Altima for a
2004 Honda Civic LX sedan and I LOVE IT.
I cannot stress what a good value this
car is. The body style is very European
and the inside will remind you of a
pricer Volkswagen Jetta! I recommend
this car to anyone that is serious about
style and value!
I love the stylish lines of the exterior
and the roomy interior. The controls
are very intuitive and are easy to reach
while driving. This car is very
luxurious feeling and could be mistaken
for a pricer European sedan.

The only reason why its not rated high
on the 'Fun to Drive' is coz I am
moving to a civic from a jetta turbo
and compared to Jetta 1.8T the Civic
is quite torqueless. But I didnt buy
it for its sportiness. I bought it for
its realiablity, fuel economy and
overall functionality. Its a very
practical car...far more practical
than out Jetta, far more reliable than
the Jetta and far more fuel efficient
Fuel economy. Awesome clutch for city
traffic. Almost effortless to drive in
stop and go traffic (thats if you know
how to drive stick shift). Compared to
the JEtta clutch which actually gives
you a sore calf muscle in traffic the
Civic is made for effortless shifting.
The fuel gauge is very erratic. Almost
unreliable to acutally gauage distance
travelled and fuel left. Even when it
shows E (with light on) I have filled
up 11.4 gal. And many a times its gone
to E and gone back up a few notches.

I previously owned a 2001 Toyota Camry
and found it was too much car for me
and it did not have the pep and
performance my former Honda Accord
did. Gas consumption was 23 mi/gal
around town and my new Civic is
supposed to get 31 mpg. This is a big
difference with the price of gas going
up. I find that the visibility is much
better than the Toyota with fewer blind
spots that were very scarey in the
other. No complaints on the Civic EX.
Moon roof; CD deck; maneuverability;
and most importantly, visibility.
