Great First Car
By WSUguy on
2004 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
We bought my civic a year used from friends who were moving on to a Prius. It was a great first car, everything just worked. I never had a problem outside of a flat tire. I only filled it up once or twice a month, and with its 12 gallon tank that was really amazing. It has a really fun ride and did a great job getting me through high school. My sister is now driving it, and there still is yet to be a mechanical issue!
Steering Wheel- It sounds weird, but I have never found a car with a more comfortable steering wheel. Also for an economy car the sound system is remarkable.
Road noise can be loud when you get on the highway, though it is far from the worst you'll find.
