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


Bought new in 9/03. Front passenger strut failed at approx 4k. Clutch started making squeaking noise at 25k. At 60k had clutched inspected, not an issue that has to be fixed but would cost $600 to eliminate the squeak. Driver door lock worn out at around 60k making it embarrassing when trying to get in the car if I actually locked the door. Cheap paint chips and scratches easy. Dents really easy. Not having ABS is a little dangerous, and the car for being so lite weight lacks breaking power.

Best Features

Great gas mileage. Amazing in the snow as long as it isn't too deep. Handles well for an economy car, very poor compared to my BMW X3, BMW Z3, and Mazda6, but better than my Dodge Ram.

Worst Features

Make these options standard: anti lock brakes, side impact airbags, pwr door locks.
