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


I don't mind that this car is not
popular because I got mine for
$15.6K ... nearly $4K off sticker. The
engine is peppy , but could benefit
from an extra 20 hp or so. The rally-
style shifter, although weird
initially, has become intuitive now.
Close gear ratios make for fun
driving, but a sixth gear is needed
for highway crusing (4K rpm at 75
mph). This car is a blast to toss
around, but the wheel/tire combination
leaves much to be desired. Suspension
is a bit bouncy, but well mannered
when taking corners at speed.
Aftermarket suspension and
wheels/tires are a must, in my
opinion. Also, the tranny doesn't like
1-2 shifts after a while.

Best Features

Rally-style shifter. Peppy engine. Hatchback versatility. Distinctive styling.

Worst Features

Bigger wheels/tires. At least 20 more hp. Sixth gear.
