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 production feel). 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, and EX. Overall a good buy but could be better

Best Features

Side air bags, center console and monroof. Regetting buying the auto transmission, not peppy enough

Worst Features

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.
