2003 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


I bought the Civic EX, because I wanted
a car that would be freindly to my
wallet, but still fun. When you
upgrade to the EX you loose some in
city gas milage, but I still average
330 a tank, and thats all city
driving. The upgrades are what make
the EX so cool. A 1.7L V-tech engine
Delivers more than enough power, and
you also get alloy rims, power
everything, moon roof, tilt steering,
and premium sound. You feel like you
have a sports car instead of an economy

Best Features

The V-tech has amazing power for four cylinder. It even holds it's own on steep mountain grades. That paired with the premium audio sound, witch is as good as any expensive custom job is well worth upgrading to the EX.

Worst Features

The A/C knobs are a little immposing. Smaller ones would compliment the dash better. A lock on the glove box would add security. It's a shame that even on the fully loaded EX you do not get floor matts as a standard option. You have to graduate up to the Accord for those.
