New Car & Surprises Not Always Good
By traveler on


2005 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


Purchased this new car w/75 miles on it from dealer. Nice looking exterior, well appointed & roomy interior. Great car for city & all flatland driving. However, it does lack necessary torque/power/responsiveness to effectively & safely climb hills, pass, & freeway merge when necessary without having at least 3/4ths of a mile or more clear of traffic to get up to speed (0 to 60mph in not seconds, but 3 to 5 minutes! Amazingly poor & unsafe performance!

Best Features

Well appointed & roomy interior. Great FM & AM radio reception w/interior antenna.

Worst Features

Improved torque/power. Improved turning ratio. Better original tires--originals have minimal traction on wet roads-- don't even want to think about performance or lack of on icy/snowy road conditions.
