2004 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car new in 2004, and it is probably the best car I have owned to date. It has been very reliable, as I have only done the usual routine maintenance (wipers, tires, oil changes, etc). I got the VP package with manual locks and crank windows (less to go wrong- not that it probably would). The 5 speed trans. makes it fun to drive. Power seems on par or better than other 4 cyl. economy-minded models. Buying price was maybe a tad higher than some competing models, but the lack of repair costs and the great fuel economy have long since justified the price! MPG of 35-42 is about the usual for me. I do tilt the seat back a bit, as I'm 6'5" and 250 lbs. Great car though!

Best Features

Styling, zippy power, smooth manual trans., good gas mileage, typical Honda quality, easy maintenance (I do it myself)

Worst Features

more aggressive stock tires, interior a bit cramped for several (bigger) people
