2005 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have owned my Honda Civic EX Coupe now for over 2 years, and found it is not the car for me. Found this out after renting a 2007 Mazda3 for a week, and discovered it is much more comfortable, more responsive turning and brakes, fabulous interior instrumentation! Over time, have found the Civic difficult to get in and out of, seats very uncomfortable, and long distance trips are painful. Biggest complaint is road noise! I've driven on the highway and been unable to hear conversations with other passengers, or music unless it is very loud! Would not purchase this car again.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage is great - around 33-35 MPG combined driving. Inexpensive basic maintenance. Reliable. Orange back-lighting on dials very cool! After over 2 years, cloth on seats in excellent condition, exterior paint still great.

Suggested Improvements

Reduction of road noise would really improve this car. Improved support in seats. Coupe doors heavy, don't stay open (keep shutting on me!) Upgrade interior features.
