2004 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Fantastic car. Only averages 28 mpg though. Beautiful from every angle inside & out. No mechanical problems at all. Stiff ride for Detroit roads. Great in the curves. Does 125 mph with ease. Super quality materials inside. Made in Europe. Great value at $17,200. Hondas hold their value great. I'm already ahead of the depreciation curve after only 1.5 years.
Seats, Leather wrap steering wheel and shifter, keyless entry, 16" wheels look great, 4 wheel disc brakes & ABS standard, sun roof, nice subtle exhaust sound, materials feel great to the touch, easy to clean, hatchback holds my 62cm road bicycle & my wife's 54cm road bike, not bad for tall drivers.
Bottom part of seat cushion makes me slouch a bit, driver window gets slightly misaligned on the way up in a strong wind, sun roof seal sometimes does not completely seat itself (cosmetic issue at times - has never leaked), gas mileage consistently over 30mpg in the city would be good, better brakes.
