2003 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Leased it brand new a year and a half ago. I put on quite a bit of highway mileage the first year. It handled nicely on the 25-30 Mile commute to and from work. On much longer drives (>100 miles) the seats become uncomfortable and lower back support is poor. Performance is good for zipping around town by yourself. Get 2-3 people in the car and your enjoyment decreases greatly. Drive up an incline with passengers and get ready to give it the gas. Transmission is amazing, ultra smooth even under hard acceleration. Engine noise acceptable, but buzzy at higher RPM which you will notice because to get decent acceleration the car must gear down and rev up a lot. No real complaints

Best Features

Gas mileage and Eco-friendly engine. High quality interior and ergonomics. Worry free driving for all!

Worst Features

Engine Engine Engine. I realize that its geared towards fuel savings and emissions.... but the power is just not keeping up with the competition. The suspension for 2003 is rough, Macpherson struts just don't cut it.
