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


I used to own a 94 accord that never had any problems other than rust (289,000 miles), so when I bought my newish car I only looked at Honda's. Mistake. The car's quality is not very good. The cable for opening the gas tank broke recently so I have to open the gas tank door through the trunk $200 to fix). Car has a strange overheating problem that the dealer cannot diagnose, not good soundproofing in car, engine is loud, The warranty on these cars in crap, does not get that great of gas mileage, maybe 25-35. This car is boring to drive, especially in an automatic. However the car handles nicely in upstate NY snow and I feel safe in it. I think Honda is riding on their laurels...

Best Features

Sound system, sunroof, good in snow

Worst Features

General quality. NOT A GOOD USED CAR PURCHASE. I will selling this car to some unfortunate person.
