2004 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I previously owned a 2001 Toyota Camry
and found it was too much car for me
and it did not have the pep and
performance my former Honda Accord
did. Gas consumption was 23 mi/gal
around town and my new Civic is
supposed to get 31 mpg. This is a big
difference with the price of gas going
up. I find that the visibility is much
better than the Toyota with fewer blind
spots that were very scarey in the
other. No complaints on the Civic EX.


Best Features

Moon roof; CD deck; maneuverability; and most importantly, visibility.


Worst Features

Perhaps a smoother ride.

2004 Honda Civic Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My family has always been a loyal
american made car buying one. However
I noticed all the problems we had with
buicks, cadillacs, chevy's etc.
Engines powerful by awful electronics
and fuel econ. My wife's family had 3
generations of accords putting on
average 150,000 on each with only minor
problems. So I decided to get a civic
mainly for work commute and to avoid
the rath of my wife. Have had it only
for one month but so far like it alot.
Can't beat the gas mileage, ride,
stereo, and room for the price.


Best Features

Ease to park, back out of driveway, decent exceleration, quality dashboard, large field of view, good stereo/CD, sporty styling/lights.


Worst Features

make mud guards standard. When driving over gravel hear it hitting under carriage. Other than that couldn't expect much more for the price.

2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My other half bought one of these, and
while I have owned other Hondas too, I
find newer Hondas to be terribly boring
and uninspiring than they were 10 or 15
yrs ago.

The Civic LX/auto engine is rather
buzzy and tends to downshift a lot. Of
course the MPG is great. Handling and
steering feel are what I HATE about
this car. The steering is not precise,
and the suspension feels floaty to me,
with lots of body lean. Feels like a 20
yr old Buick Century. Unimpressive
braking too. If you want an appliance
with the soul of a refrigerator on
wheels, buy this. If you want a little
more personality and spirited driving
fun, shop elsewhere.


Best Features

Reliability MPG


Worst Features

Boring styling Bring back double-wishbone front suspension Stop inflating size each model year.

2004 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I wasn't expecting to buy a civic. Nor
was I expecting to like the new civic!
I've usually bought used cars, but
decided to go with a newer one with
less features. Don't miss the sunroof
or alloy wheels, but love the handling,
fuel economy and surprisingly enough
the peppiness.


Best Features

Dash layout and display. Great new magnesium color. Side profile resembles 3-series. 32+ mpg in city driving. The dealer was both helpful and respectable.


Worst Features

Car can be a bit bouncy on rough roads.
