Making The Case for the Canadian Civic
By rainierman on


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


I have taken my 2002 Civic EX on six
SFO/PDX trips (750 mi each way).
Harsh potholes, sand, scratched
the bottom hard, and routine 90-110 mph
commute at 5am. Despite warnings about
the Canadian-built Civics of 2001 &
2002, I remain impressed with how much
abuse my Civic has taken. I drive it
like a maniac with NO PROBLEMS
whatsoever. Rattles are starting to
surface after one year of abuse. Rides
quiet like the old Accord. US-built
tranny in my 2002 might be a
problem in the future but so far so
good. 2003 transmission is Japanese-
built, car now made in Ohio, a good
thing. overall, I suggest
skipping Civic- get the Accord.

Best Features

Height-adjustable seating (EX, Si only), clean conservative Accord-like styling, extra space for possible XM radio or DVD installation, roomy.

Worst Features

Build quality, bigger armrest, suspension.
