Not my first Honda, and not my last....
By cpc on
2004 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Spunky and sporty, and though lacking
a "V8", the 5-on-the-floor work ideally
for this 4 cylinder. Pressing 40
highway MPG, and about 35 city with
emphasis on getting into 5th gear as
soon as I hit about 35mph. Very smooth
at all speeds. I don't mind having to
manually roll down the windows ! Noise
level better-than-average. Paid about
13,250 OTD. Very capable CD/AM/FM
radio standard - seems there is some
slightly noticeable reception fading
which may be antenna or reception
caused (I DO NOT live in a remote
area). Most people wouldn't notice it.
I'm upgrading to an Alpine CDA-9820XM.
Too new to rate reliability
A/C, 5-speed, cool color
NO ASHTRAY ! No cigarette lighter !
The inside of the rear window is hard
to clean due to angle. Accessories are
what I'd considered expensive (I
therefore buy them on EBAY). I would
have liked a tachometer, but this is
called the 'VALUE PACKAGE" for a
reason; I understand.
