2003 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned 2 jettas an 1985 and 1996.
I had terrible experiences 2 years
after i bout my used 96 jetta which
scared me away from the newer
volkswagens. i keep obsessing over
jettas because they are so good
looking , comfortable and fun to drive
yet they are totally unreliable and
expensive to maintain. Civic have
always been my second choice and if i
hadnt had a jetta im sure i would have
been a bigger honda enthusiast. ( its
hard to get over the interior
differences even though the new civics
are much nicer than they used to be
they just dont compare to jettas.)


Best Features

smooth shifting, cruise control, light clutch, steering wheel, gas milage, blue dash lights, dual color dash, trunk space, drink holders


Worst Features

cd player that is reachable, more comfortable front seats (not fun for shorter drivers), abs brakes, more style/details, locks on the glove box, doesnt take speed bumps well at all

2003 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had no problems whatsoever and
have been rear ended once (by another
Civic no less). The bumper had a scrape
which has since been fixed. I only
mention this because I have seen
bumpers fall off of other cars from
less. The fuel mileage is excellent. I
average approx. 25 mpg. I have always
been a die hard buy American guy. I
became sick of working on my cars
constantly and decided that my first
new car would have to be foreign. When
American companies learn to make
reliable cars I may actually go back to
them.


Best Features

Gas mileage, handling, interior layout, vision (no horrific blind spots), reliability, comfort.


Worst Features

The only thing I would like to see different is for the four door to come with the alloy wheels as an option. I was only able to purchase mine with the hub caps.

Review

this car is a great buy. it is roomy
and has a great trunk space for a
compact car. the ergonmics are great.
the seats are not the most comfortable,
but they are good enough.


Best Features

nice instrument panel and no obstruction down the middle of the car.


Worst Features

more comfortable seats would be nice.

2003 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car has been great. Consitently 31-
34 mpg and it rides smooth. We have a
new son who was 2 months when we got
the car it has been safe and a good car
for children.


Worst Features

There are blindspots. Driver cannot see over left shoulder and a very tough view over the right shoulder. The high rear seat makes it difficult, especially for merging and highway.
