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


I bought my Civic just over a month ago
and have put about 1600 miles on it
already. Initially, I was impressed by
the look of the car. Nice design, and
you know Hondas are reliable. However,
after I was able to really get into the
car and drive it for a good bit, it
became very disappointed. Honda could
have done a lot more to make you 'feel'
like you're driving a top of the line
Civic. There is nothing better about
this than any other Civic. The VTEC is
way over rated and under powered. I am
disappointed in this car and will
probably not buy another one ever
again. It is good for a commute I would
guess, but my job is only about a mile

Best Features

Styling and gas mileage.

Worst Features

NEEDS MORE HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE! Honda should be ashamed that they have put out a VTEC motor that is so freakin' slow! Make the buyer feel like they're buying a top of the line Civic by having more options available and more standard features.
