2005 Honda Civic EX Special Edition 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


We gave up our big cushy Olds Aurora when we got the '05 Civic EX SE. I've not once regretted it. Reliable is an understatement, as it has not once had an issues. It just runs and runs well. The 5-speed manual is really peppy and is probably the biggest reason that I enjoy driving this car. Fuel economy is around 32 mpg with a pretty even mix of city/highway miles. The interior is considerably more comfortable than any other economy car I've used. We have Corollas and Cavaliers at work and they are cheap feeling in comparison. The interior and trunk were designed well. The family rides comfortably and the golf clubs easily fit in the trunk! With snow tires, it handles winter well.

Best Features

Trunk design, 5-speed transmission, fuel economy, reliability, 6-disc CD changer/radio.

Worst Features

AC outlet in front interferes with passenger cup holder, better OEM tires.
