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

Review

WE bought a 2004 new in April. It had 3 miles on the odometer when we took it for a test drive. Unfortunately we did not take it on the interstate. 18 wheelers blow it around. Side winds blow it around. In the snow the rear end tends to come around too easily. If you live in the Great White North you'll notice all four doors let in a draft from the bottom as well as from the interior handles. Wind noise seems excessive. Ditto engine noise which actually buzzes the occupants. Handling was not impressive and the ride was too choppy. You will feel EVERY road irregularity. Traded a '95 Dodge Neon 5M Highline that I bought new to buy this car. That Neon did a better job of ALL the above!

Best Features

We liked the looks of this car. We liked the crash ratings and build quality. The consumer magazines as well as Edmunds rated the car highly. The resale value was a strong contender in the purchase decision.

Worst Features

Need sound insulation under the hood. Need to do a better job keeping the outside air out of the interior from under the doors. Did not like the hydrolic clutch. A cable gives better feel. We traded this car after only eight months. Doubt we'll ever buy another Honda.
