Wonderful fit & finish. Roomy interior
and comfortable. Little dissapointed
in the fuel economy. Could use a 6th
gear. Car revs around 3500 rpms at 70
mph. I heard the automatic model revs
around 2500 rpms at 70 enabling it to
get almost 5 miles more distance to a
gallon of fuel. Best value and resale
in it's class!
Suspension, comfort, and interior
Need more power and a sixth gear in
the manual transmission. Also, better
tires. The 680's are pitiful.
. I commute about 70 miles daily -
mostly on "country roads" averaging
about 50 -55 mph with, with only 5-10
of these miles being "city" driving. I
am very pleased with this car. I
average approximately 50 mpg and
have not had any mechanical
problems. I enjoying seeing how far
I enjoy trying to beat my last mpg and
am hoping to get the 600 mile tank
as some other owners have reported
being able to do. Thus far, I can get
about 500 - 550 per tank. In spite of
a few issues I have listed in the

am extremely pleased with this car
and would buy another.

Seats provide very little by way of
shock aborbtion and lumbar support.
Arm rests should actually be high
enough to use them. Would like front
de-fog that works without AC. AC
automatically goes on when I use the
front defog - reducing my mpgs when
I looked around at many different cars
and found that the Si was the way to
go. I'm 6' and I'm comfortable in this
car with plenty of room all around.
Car isn't the quickest but has more
than enough pick up to get you where
you're going. If you choose there are
plenty of modifications to add the
extra H.P. if that's a problem. I have
no complaints about this car.

More H.P. and torque would be nice but
I've received enough tickets with this
car so maybe that's not a good idea for
me. I'm a fan of H.I.D headlights.
I love my new Honda Civic. Although
I'm a bit biased because my previous
car was a 98 Civic. Affordable,
economical, and fairly fun to drive.
I'm actually near my EPA rates MPG.
nice shifter, great styling for a car
that is traditionally very vanilla.
The LX is at the "sweet spot" in the
The seat backs are a bit narrow, so if
you're oversized you might have a tough
time fitting in. It fits me perfectly
though. The radio console is a bit of
a stretch if you happen to have long
legs/short arms and put the seat far
