2005 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased a 05 Civic LX with the 5-speed about a week ago. I really enjoy it, but if you can afford it go with the EX for the extra power. They get equal fuel economy, but at a $3K premium it might be worth it. My LX is ok but I do long for the V-TEC, and the moonroof. I would recomend the Honda service plan. It cost me $1K but is bumper to bumper for 5 years or 100K miles. The coupe is a lot of fun to drive, it is sporty but a little under powered. This is the second Honda I have owned, and have nothing but good things to say. Very reliable, and very good with resale price. Check your insurance rates before you buy. There are a lot of security features i.e. computer chip in the keys.

Favorite Features

The LX has CD player, AC, power windows and mirrors, cruise control, lots of storage, large trunk, and 60/40 folddown rear seats for access to trunk.every thing you need in a reliable gas saving commuter. As a bonus a lot of fun to drive. Very hushed in the cabin for normal driving.

Suggested Improvements

If you can swing the extra $3K or so for the EX, DO IT. The extra power from the V-TEC motor, the moonroof and ABS make it worth it. If you can't or don't want to, the LX is a really good car. Plus it is also a very good looking car to boot!
