Tough Act to Beat!
By cidarcca on
Vehicle2004 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI spent several months researching all
cars in this class and chose the 2004
model even though 2003's are cheaper.
It's got great reliability, resale
value, and exceptional build quality.
Also, it's got comfy seats and a real
smooth engine/transmission combo. The
2004 EX model upgrades make it more
distinctive (new alloys, front/rear
lights & bumpers, antilock brakes,
stereo & sound insullation, driver's
seat adjustment, new center console)
plus the new Magnesium color looks
great! The power moonroof eats up a
lot of headroom but I'm 6-1"
and can still fit but it's a little
snug - thank goodness the driver's seat
adjusts up and down!
Best FeaturesI highly recommend the mud guards - it gives the car a finished look, and pinstriping is good too (skip the spoiler - looks better without it and you'll save almost $600). Also, get the trunk liner. All are cheap. Dealer was great.
Worst FeaturesLow-end torque is needed. It's also a little loud when cruising at 3500-3800 rpm's (70-75 mph) but after two months I'm finally getting use to it. The power band is good all the way up to 5000 but don't do it too much or the engine will likely wear out faster.
