2005 Honda Civic LX Special Edition 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Bought an 05 SE LX with 5spd. Got 40 mpg on trip from VA to NJ with air on, and pushing each gear out of each tollbooth. Looking at 41-42 after car is broken in. Now have 500 miles on it. Handles great local and on highway. Has some wind noise at highway speeds and road noise on grooved road. And I fit well for a 6'2", 235lber.
Handling, gas mileage, just a fun car to drive, leather wrapped steering wheel feels so good
4 wheel ABS disc brakes, better sound insulation at highway speeds, sound controls on steering columm, more horsepower
