2005 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Review

HEAT SUX (yes thermostat has been replaced with high temp).
If you live in a cold climate avoid this car.
This car is loud too, it picks up an unnecessary amount of road noise.
Otherwise it's a great car with great mileage and very reliable.
The interior is very loud t


Best Features

Great mileage, great value, and reliable.


Worst Features

Honda should not economize on the heater! For a dollor or two more per car, put in a heater that's on par with every other car. Car needs more insulation too as road noise is bad.

2005 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I was going over 100kph (60mph) in my little 2005 Honda Civic Coupe. I was drowsy and noticed I was going off the shoulder too late. I over corrected and fish tailed twice. I lost control around the turn, spun and slammed along the guard rail in my lane a couple times before making my full 360. I broke two guard rail posts and pushed it out to about 3 feet. I broke bumpers, my axle, [violative content deleted] my unibody and the whole drivers side of my car. But she kept me safe and secure the entire time, the frame taking the blow for me. I only have slight neck pain the next day. Everything mechanical even still works, engine is pristine.
Thank you Honda..

I will be repurchasing, maybe a fit.


Best Features

It actually had a great sound system


Worst Features

I loved everything about this car. It lived up to and passed my expectations.

2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

My civic hybrid has been through a lot - long commutes, cross country trips, 2 high school drivers. It's still running well with over 170k miles & getting over 41mpg which is a lifesaver right now. As long as maintenance is kept up with it will last a long, long, long time! I'm expecting to drive this car for several more years, I love it.


Best Features

fuel efficiency, easy to drive, great hybrid features - auto stop.


Worst Features

only one cigarette lighter, CVT has a judder when accelerating, check engine light is always on.

2005 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had my Honda civic 1.7 liter now for more than a year. This car is not just comfy and looks slick but has amazing gas mileage. My average mileage is 39 miles to the gallon.I have put almost 30,000 miles on it in a single year and doesn't drive any different then when I bought it.


Worst Features

If the car had more power to it, the mpg is great, don't get me wrong but the acceleration on this car is all that is lacking.
