2005 Civic EX Special Edition Sedan
By M on


2005 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan w/Front Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Honda has done a number on the interior
of the Special Edition--very
interesting to look at. Stereo looks
like a higher-end after-market (6-disc--
great bass, clear treble, multiple
graphic display). Magnesium metallic
with graphite heated leather upgrade is
a beautiful combination. The only
problem I have is the lack of legroom
in the front, and I'm only 5'10"!
Perfect car for small to medium sized
people. Will be driven for many years
to come. If you are looking to buy a
regualar EX, DON'T! SE comes standard
with leather-wrapped steering wheel,
better radio, spoiler, alloy wheels,
etc. Overall paid $17,400 (sticker

Best Features

Said upgrades from the EX total more than $2,000, come standard for just over $1,000 above EX sticker. I love the heated leather upgrade and "young" looking interior. Stereo has great wattage and range. 35 mpg average-- can't go wrong. An overall great design and feel.

Worst Features

Legroom in front. I'm still trying to move my seat back every time I get in. Also, if you are coming from a V6, you may be in for a slow surprise. The car is built for overall reliability, fuel- economy, and practicality, not performance.
