2004 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Well, it's been 5 years since I purchased this car used, with 32k on the clock.
It now has 145k on it, and I'm expecting to own it another 3 years and 60k.
So that right there should tell you something about it.

This gen of Civic is, quite simply put, the ideal commuter and city car.
The engine is reasonably smooth and peppy.
Very low road noise with Goodyear Affinity Triple-treads.
Steering is nicely weighted for city driving.
Ride quality is sportier than it's American counterparts, and build quailty is far and above the class leader.
5 adults will fit if needed.
Sunroof and power gizmos abound.
Repairs are infrequent and cheap.
36 highway, 30 city.
How can you go wrong?

Best Features

It rides and sounds like a well-built car. Interior design is not startling, and ergonomics are well-thought out.

Worst Features

Rear disc brakes. Drums just don't cut it, even for a car this light. And make the rear defrost button illuminate like the rest of the buttons. It throws the whole dash balance off at night.
