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


Review

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!


Best Features

Suspension, comfort, and interior room.


Worst Features

Need more power and a sixth gear in the manual transmission. Also, better tires. The 680's are pitiful.

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

. 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
"suggested improvements" section, I
am extremely pleased with this car
and would buy another.


Best Features

Thegas mileage , the cruise controls on the steering wheel - so you can decelerate and not have to cancel the cruise and the auto-stop feature.


Worst Features

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 it rains.

2003 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback w/Side Airbags (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Color (vivid blue), Rally shifter, seats are comfortable. Location of controls.


Worst Features

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.

Vehicle

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


Review

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.


Best Features

nice shifter, great styling for a car that is traditionally very vanilla. The LX is at the "sweet spot" in the feature/price area.


Worst Features

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 back.
