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


Most aspects of the car is good. Noise is a big issue, but I put some rubber tar roof repair on all four wheel wells and it helped considerably. The extra sound insulation I put in the doors helped a little too. Every time I fill the tank, I calculate the mpg numbers and it's been around 35-37/gal ever since I started using Mobil1 synthetic oil at around 10,000 miles on the odometer. I'm at 40,000 now. The only nagging problem I've had is the plastic panel in the rear windshield making a noise similar to the one you hear when cutting a piece of glass. Took it to the dealer but they say because it's just a clip and not a bolt, they can't do much except stick some card board in it.

Best Features

Fuel economy, cluster gauge, visibility through all windows, clear manual gear shift, good steering response with aftermarket rims and tires (205/50r16).

Worst Features

More sound insulation from the factory.
