2004 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Where is the performance?! This is not
the car I thought I was buying. Why did
Europe get the Type R model? For all
you people thinking that you got a
great car go online and see the car
Europe got. You will think twice about
buying the Si. At highway speeds the
transmission whines like a spoiled
child. I keep reaching for another gear
that does not exist. The ride is very
rough. This is not a comfortable car
for driving any kind of distance. Lousy
fuel economy compared to the standard
civic. The silver coating on the center
console is cheap and easily scratches.

Best Features

The shift handle is the best feature and always gets long stares from attendants at the filling station.

Worst Features

Get rid of the leather on the steering wheel and shift handle. It is just plain silly on a car that is not performance based. Move the cruise control button to the bottom row. It is impossible to see behind the steering wheel. Get a scratch resistant coating for the center console.
