2003 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I admit, I'm not that young anymore, but I still like economical, fun-to-drive cars that will last. I have owned my Si new just over 2 years and have 57,000 miles on it. It is by far the most comfortable long-distance car I have driven. The handling is superb, the seats are comfortable yet sporty, the ergonomics are excellent. I average 30 MPG and my experience with dealerships has been very good. I think the leg room in the rear is better than the Jetta, and the utility of the hatch is terrific. The overall feel of this car is far better the price I paid for it. This is definitely an overlooked value.

Best Features

Interior comfort and feel, shifter, handling, utility, storage, value, uniqueness.

Worst Features

Anti-pinch sunroof requires you to release and reengage the switch twice while closing. Adjustable intermittent wiper delay. Less pessimistic fuel guage. Seat tilt (seat pan). Better stereo (mp3 capability/satellite radio).
