2005 Honda Civic Value Package 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


The car is fragile. Moderate winds will really affect driving, car sways easily. Acceleration 40-60 is extremely poor when A/C turned on and average with A/C turned off. Acceleration 0-40 with A/C off is above average for what you pay for. Gas mileage is good, comparable to what is advertised. Wheel alignment is fragile. Even moderately aggressive driving may cause alignment problems in the future. Car does not handle curves well. If you're buying this car for a child who only needs a car to get from point A to point B, then a Civic is a terrific investment and great value. This car gets you from point A to point B, nothing more.

Best Features

Gas mileage, driver seat is reasonably comfortable, good acceleration (for what you're paying for) 0-40 no A/C.

Worst Features

Make car heavier, increase HP slightly (even if cost goes up, this is fine, these improvements are necessary to achieve "standard" performance).
