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


Review

It may not be the coolest car or the
best looking, but the 2004 Civic is
still a winner. We have consistantly
gotten between 35 and 45 miles per
gallon (that is a mix between
city/highway driving too) The interior
fit and finish is great and the
manufacturer has made good use of
space. The ride is exceptionally
comfortable and doesn't punish the
occupents. Leg room up front is great,
though in the back its a little tight.
While the Civic may be expensive on
this end, the cost is obviously
justified in the high fuel economy it
gets and the pristine reliability.


Best Features

Fuel economy, new outside design, front seat comfort, smooth ride


Worst Features

Adjustible radio dials from the steering wheel, slightly faster engine

2004 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

My husband gets over 45 MPG with this
car on average, and this is with
automatic transmission. The car comes
with many things that are extra on
other cars, such as cruise control, a
CD player, and has the great safety
feature of sideair bags. Highly
recommend.


Best Features

The great gas mileage!


Worst Features

None!

2004 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, this car is everything that a
budget minded consumer wants for under
$15000. Small, ecomonical, and a no
nonsense approach to functionality,
wrapped up in a fun to drive, sporty
car thats not embarrasing to drive
around town in. If your looking for a
car without all the frills that you
dont need, but need features like a/c
and cd player, this really is the car
for you.


Best Features

Interior controls, comfort. styling. Bullet proof reliabilty..


Worst Features

More color combinations, adjustable seat belt anchors. More power. Other than that, no complaints!

2004 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Typical Honda build; tight, all
controls feel right, smooth and quiet
engine, snappy handling and ride. Not
a sports car, but very fun to drive
nonetheless. Much better power at
altitude than the hybrid, particularly
on extended grades. Has all the
features you really need and none of
the silly fluff you don't. Five speed
is fun and shifts great. Highly
recommended if you're thinking of a 2-
door Civic, no sacrifices and amazing
mileage. Why do people need more car
than this??


Best Features

Great engine & shifting, firm but comfortable ride. Cruises wonderfully on the freeway at 75 with little wind noise. Handling on par with competitors. Haven't driven very far yet but mileage is great, over 200 miles of mixed driving on half a tank!


Worst Features

Low rolling resistance Dunlop tires are noisy on stud-worn CO roads; they're rated for 51psi max and I'm running 42/38 per hybrid drivers for mileage but it doesn't change the noise. I'll probably replace them sooner than later. An instantaneous mile/gallon gauge would be a nice addi
