2005 Honda Civic Sedan EX Special Edition 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I used to own a 94 accord that never had any problems other than rust (289,000 miles), so when I bought my newish car I only looked at Honda's. Mistake. The car's quality is not very good. The cable for opening the gas tank broke recently so I have to open the gas tank door through the trunk $200 to fix). Car has a strange overheating problem that the dealer cannot diagnose, not good soundproofing in car, engine is loud, The warranty on these cars in crap, does not get that great of gas mileage, maybe 25-35. This car is boring to drive, especially in an automatic. However the car handles nicely in upstate NY snow and I feel safe in it. I think Honda is riding on their laurels...


Best Features

Sound system, sunroof, good in snow


Worst Features

General quality. NOT A GOOD USED CAR PURCHASE. I will selling this car to some unfortunate person.

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


Review

My Honda Civic is fabulous - granted I still have very low mileage as all is very convenient where I live. I just had some brake work done today at Firestone for 217 dollars. No problem with the car otherwise.


Best Features

The CD player, speakers.


Worst Features

side airbags for the driver

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


Review

I bought the car for my daughter with 35,000 miles on it. The few times I have driven it I have been pleasantly surprised. It is especially comfortable at highway speeds. I just looked up the resale value and it has only depreciated $1,500 in two years. I would like to see the front bucket seats beefed-up somewhat. I weigh 225 and the seats do 'creek' upon entrance or exit.


Best Features

The best part is the gas mileage. I recently got 40+ mpg on a 500 mile trip. Day-to-day mileage is 30+ mpg. At 65 the ride is smooth and quiet.


Worst Features

As I said, the seats could be made more heavy-duty.

2005 Honda Civic Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car has so much power. I love it. I used to drive a minivan and thought changing into a car that is much lower would be horrible. It ended up being fantastic and I've never loved a car more.


Best Features

Power, Compact, and Easy to drive.


Worst Features

Comfort could be improved slightly, but other than that, perfect.

I have owned this vehicle for a few months now and I have had absolutely no problems. I purchased the vehicle with 53,000 miles and I now have around 59,000. I have been averaging 32-35 miles per gallon (all highway).


Best Features

Miles per gallon, design.
