Economy, but a bit more
By datrout on
2004 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
As an introductory model for the Civic,
this isn't bad. Originally puchased
for my teenage son, he rearended
someone within 2 weeks, not badly, but
enough to get it taken away. Now it is
my work car. I own an SI, this is a
nimble answer for m-f workday week.
Great gas mileage around town in
stop/go traffic and enough pep to get
me out of trouble, not enough to get me
INTO trouble (unlike my SI). Overall,
I don't like the hand-roll windows,
they make me feel like an idiot, but
other than that, I like the car for
what it is, a workhorse. A cute
workhorse, but a workhorse none the
Not bad looking. The interior is roomy
for the suggested 5 people, if they are
on Atkins and not too plump. The
engine can get me 0nto the freeway and
into traffic nicely. And the gas
mileage is VERY nice.
PL-EEEZE...the interior gets so dirty
so quickly, and it scuffs very easily.
I installed seat covers immediately to
prevent the LIGHT tan seats from dirt.
The manual roll windows make me
embarassed, but overall, it is a work
car...a kid's beginner car, and for
that, it works.
