2004 Honda Civic Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
My family has always been a loyal
american made car buying one. However
I noticed all the problems we had with
buicks, cadillacs, chevy's etc.
Engines powerful by awful electronics
and fuel econ. My wife's family had 3
generations of accords putting on
average 150,000 on each with only minor
problems. So I decided to get a civic
mainly for work commute and to avoid
the rath of my wife. Have had it only
for one month but so far like it alot.
Can't beat the gas mileage, ride,
stereo, and room for the price.
Ease to park, back out of driveway,
decent exceleration, quality dashboard,
large field of view, good stereo/CD,
make mud guards standard. When driving
over gravel hear it hitting under
carriage. Other than that couldn't
expect much more for the price.
2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
My other half bought one of these, and
while I have owned other Hondas too, I
find newer Hondas to be terribly boring
and uninspiring than they were 10 or 15
The Civic LX/auto engine is rather
buzzy and tends to downshift a lot. Of
course the MPG is great. Handling and
steering feel are what I HATE about
this car. The steering is not precise,
and the suspension feels floaty to me,
with lots of body lean. Feels like a 20
yr old Buick Century. Unimpressive
braking too. If you want an appliance
with the soul of a refrigerator on
wheels, buy this. If you want a little
more personality and spirited driving
fun, shop elsewhere.
Bring back double-wishbone front
Stop inflating size each model year.
2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
I wasn't expecting to buy a civic. Nor
was I expecting to like the new civic!
I've usually bought used cars, but
decided to go with a newer one with
less features. Don't miss the sunroof
or alloy wheels, but love the handling,
fuel economy and surprisingly enough
Dash layout and display. Great new
magnesium color. Side profile
resembles 3-series. 32+ mpg in city
driving. The dealer was both helpful

THis is a great car for the money. It
has all the extras you need and the
reliability to give you peace of mind,
too. Our family of 4 fits nicely and
enjoys the ride! THis is our 3rd Honda
Civic. WE are SOLD!
