2004 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


As an introductory model for the Civic,
this isn't bad. Originally puchased
for my teenage son, he rearended
someone within 2 weeks, not badly, but
enough to get it taken away. Now it is
my work car. I own an SI, this is a
nimble answer for m-f workday week.
Great gas mileage around town in
stop/go traffic and enough pep to get
me out of trouble, not enough to get me
INTO trouble (unlike my SI). Overall,
I don't like the hand-roll windows,
they make me feel like an idiot, but
other than that, I like the car for
what it is, a workhorse. A cute
workhorse, but a workhorse none the

Best Features

Not bad looking. The interior is roomy for the suggested 5 people, if they are on Atkins and not too plump. The engine can get me 0nto the freeway and into traffic nicely. And the gas mileage is VERY nice.

Worst Features

PL-EEEZE...the interior gets so dirty so quickly, and it scuffs very easily. I installed seat covers immediately to prevent the LIGHT tan seats from dirt. The manual roll windows make me embarassed, but overall, it is a work car...a kid's beginner car, and for that, it works.
