Great car, but not what they used to be

Vehicle2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI used to own a '97 Honda Civic DX
coupe, which is the stripped down model
for those of you who aren't too
familiar with the line-up. I now own
a '02 EX coupe which is their 'top of
the line' model. I must say, there
have been some drastic improvements in
those 5 yrs, as well as some
disappointments. My '97 DX was
supposed to be getting only 106 hp
while the '02 EX is supposed to be
getting 127. Still, the DX felt much
quicker. The '02 also has a lot of
little creaks and rattles on the
interior. The last complaint is gas
mileage. Honda claims 32 city and 38
on the hwy. I do a mixture of both and
am lucky if I get 30.
Best FeaturesPower tilt and slide moonroof allows you to get some fresh air even if it's raining. Red instrumentation at night allows for easy visibility and a 'different' look. 5 speed manual with a decent redline lets you use every little pony it's got.
Worst FeaturesLet the passanger have a power door lock switch. Memory seats on both sides. One more cup holder in the back. Leather seating option. Wider tires. Courtesy lights stay on a little longer when you first get it.
