2004 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Decided to try a Honda sedan after racking up over 235,000 miles on my 1993 Toyota pickup. Based on past performance and reliability, this looked like the perfect runner. I was not disappointed as the 1.7 is peppy when combined with the 5-speed--and gets about 30 mpg around town. All controls are easy to reach. Dash lights are great since you can adjust independently with and without the headlights on. Stereo is of excellent quality. Fold down seats are a bonus when extra room is needed for cargo. Suspension is solid and surprising-- doesn't feel like a typical subcompact. Front seats are slightly cramped but not uncomfortable. Seats have good support for long drives.

Favorite Features

Peppy engine, solid brakes, dual trip meters, adjustable dash lights, reasonably smooth suspension, and effortless shifting of the 5-speed transmission.

Suggested Improvements

Make vehicle slightly wider to eliminate cramped feeling up front. Perhaps a 6-speed transmission would help compensate for low shift points and allow better cruising at freeway speeds.
