My 2nd Civic

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


I love the car. When Honda called doing
a survey after I purchased it they
asked what influenced me buying my car
more than anything else. My answer was
my last civic, it is a 1990 model with
331,000 miles on the original drive
train and I still use it as my daily
driver. The only complaint I have with
the new car is that the driver side
door pull should of been angled up more
toward the window (as is the passenger
side pull) as it interferes with side
leg room by as much as 3 1/2 inches
compared to the older civic and the
lack of being able to spread your legs
is quite noticeable. In my opinion if
it's a Honda you can't go wrong, best
car I have ever owned and the only one
I considered buying.

Best Features

My favorite feature is just the way a Honda drives. When I bought my first Civic I test drove it and there was also a Ford Escort sitting next to it, I test drove it one block before taking it back to the lot having already decided I wanted a Civic because of the quality feel while driving it.

Worst Features

The only suggestion I have is to redesign the drivers side door panel and get rid of that huge door pull that houses the power door locks and windows. If the engineer that designed the door panels had sat in an older civic and then the new one he would of never designed the door pull the way he did.
