2005 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Front Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
This is a fantastic car. Beautiful
inside and outside: clean, simple, and
effective. The control is nice and
tight and the transmission, even for an
automatic, is very smooth--both typical
of Hondas. The EX model comes very well
equipped with sunroof, 127 hp, alloy
wheels, 6 speakers, CD player, ABS and
a myriad of little things that make the
entire car worthwhile. Gas mileage is
great: 31 City, 37 Highway.
I got the car perfectly content without
any of the dealer installed options
like foglights and interior trims. The
foglights would be nice but the
installation fees are absurdly high.
The standard features in the EX are
great and come with a great value. The
standard alloy rims (only with the EX)
are surprisingly nice. The extra two
speakers in this model are nice too.
Good handling and smooth transmission.
A better stereo system would be nice--
the Corolla's stereo and speakers sound
better. And the factory installed
options are really expensive when the
installation fees are added in!
