Holds its Value
By Happy Dad on
2005 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
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.
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.
As I said, the seats could be made more heavy-duty.
