2005 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan w/Front Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Annoyances but not necessary to fix: brake pedal pops, creaking noise from transmission when clutch pressed (difficult to lubricate), drivers seat has a little play when rocked back and forth, brake pads shift in calipers and "pop" when braking forward after braking reverse.

Major problems: Head gasket replaced at dealer for $950 @ around 115,000 miles. (If you heat goes out while idling and bubbles are coming from your coolant reservoir while idling you need a head gasket).

Other things: Front pads at 90k, oxygen sensor around 90k, fluids, filters tires.

The good: no electrical/accessory problems, drives pretty good and smooth with the manual. Solid and reliable despite head gasket.
