2003 Honda Civic Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car was all right at first, just a little vibration due to a loose motor mount. The transmission went out 5 months later and it's broken beyond repair is what I was told. It'll total 3 grand for a new one and I need to shell out cash for worn left and right bushings, a leaky cv boot, and a new motor mount. Don't bother buying unless you can get it from dealer under warranty.


Best Features

V-tech engine, clear tweeters, moonroof, interior style


Worst Features

Put in a decent tranny!

2003 Honda Civic Coupe HX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased my 2003 brand new and most of my mileage was freeway for 4 of the 6 years. Positives: Mileage 38 mpg town and over 45 Hwy. Fun and zippy Negatives: Transmission at 90m bad noise and at 110 embarrassing. It's said to be a Civic problem avg. at 120m. Heater vents above stereo. In the winter with loud music blew 4 different Honda stereos before they put a Pioneer in for me. Replaced catalytic at 60m. Trunk leaked from day 1 under trunk and they never found it. Thank God I'm in So.Cal. I have had a bad time with my Honda, but still loved it. I can say I will not buy another when it finally dies!


Best Features

Gas Mileage 36-38 mpg still around town.


Worst Features

Transmission, Road noise, No heater vents near stereo

2003 Honda Civic Coupe LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I got this car from a used car dealer about 1 year ago, and have not had any problems whatsoever. I will say that the seats aren't all that comforting for long rides and the default radio system lacks, but aside from this, no complaints. Overall, this car is very reliable.


Best Features

Great gas mileage and reliability thus far. Great room space: can fit a big person comfortable for such a small car.


Worst Features

Better seats for back support. Gets a bit uncomfortable when on long rides.

2003 Honda Civic Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've got a 2003 honda civic ex coupe totally gas engine 1.7 L 5 speed i've got about $200 worth of upgrades in it, trust me its totally worth it.. I'm getting avg 44 mpg on the highway and 37 in the city, it's got a cold air intake with a ram air inductor new exhaust, came stock with 2 mufflers, now it has one straight pipe with one straight muffler, plus a small performance chip, i go within 3mph of the speed limit and when I'm coming up on a stop or going down hill i kick it into neutral. i can get between 550 and 650 miles per fill up depending on how i'm driving, i always fill up b4 the gas light comes one


Worst Features

replace the exhaust system, put a cold air intake with a ram air inductor and an Intake Air Temperature sensor chip, it'll cost around 200 for everything but the money you save in gas is well worth it
