Very reliable but could use more power
By Eurotraveler on
2005 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Front Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
Ok 6000 miles later here is my take on
this coming from a Celica and a Civic
Si. I definitely had to get use to
less pep for starters the interior
buid is ok but still missing something
(dash is a little too dull + very mass
Gas mileage is decent 30 miles per
gallon. Rear spolier option for
around $500 adds some appeal.
Ok enough about the bad... The good is
resale value, reliability, low APR
financing, value priced and the fact
that you don't have to choose from a
billion options. Like with the Toyota
where every thing on the car is extra.
Honda does a great job by grouping
their upgrades in packages - DX, LX,
Overall a good buy but could be better
Side air bags,
center console and monroof.
Regetting buying the auto
transmission, not peppy enough
The seat belt reminder is annoying,
make it a click of the button option.
Sound system is weak. 6X9 40 watt max
speakers in the rear - come on. Also
how about a CD receiver with an MP3
players (what year are we in anyway?)
I think Honda needs to innovate a bit
more to distingush itself.
