2004 Honda Civic Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Ease to park, back out of driveway, decent exceleration, quality dashboard, large field of view, good stereo/CD, sporty styling/lights.


Worst Features

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)


Review

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 yrs ago. 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.


Best Features

Reliability MPG


Worst Features

Boring styling Bring back double-wishbone front suspension Stop inflating size each model year.

2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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 the peppiness.


Best Features

Dash layout and display. Great new magnesium color. Side profile resembles 3-series. 32+ mpg in city driving. The dealer was both helpful and respectable.


Worst Features

Car can be a bit bouncy on rough roads.
