"I've owned a 2002 Honda LX for 4+ years without a single issue. And I have driven this car in snow, sleet you name it. Excellent mileage - the ultimate fill it, shut it, forget it car.
Cons: It could have used more power and better noise reduction."
"This was my first car out of college. It has by far been the best purchase I've ever made. Since I've owened the car, I've put 56,000 miles on it and have had NO repairs! The car has been very good to me ;).
It gets excellent gas mileage as others have stated, and I could sell it now, for only $3,000 less for what I paid for it almost 4 years ago. Crazy!
Only complaint, weak HP and the cigarette lighter is poorly positioned for MP3 players."
"Ive bought this vehicle used, when I bought it, it had 9500 miles on it, it was Honda certified for 7 years and 100K miles, currently it has 57K on it..No problems what so ever, had to replace brake pads recently, but thats normal and I'm in need of new tires but normal as well, other than that, this car is zipy and fun..Honestly, you just cant go wrong with a civic...Looks good too, the lady's like it as well, mine is black and has an after market suspension and its the best investment ever..makes the ride very sporty and handles awesome..weeeeee....
Owner of a 05 civic lx coupe..
34mpg city..not to shabby..."
"When I purchased this car new, the sticker promised 29 miles per gallon in the city, and I have consistently, even after two years, gotten 30mpg. I'm still impressed. The seat is a little firm, but a good fit. It handles smoothly and rides quiet, but the turn radius leaves something to be desired.
According to KBB, it has retained it's value so well I could sell it now for only $2500 less than I paid for it brand new 2 yrs ago."
"I recently moved to Chicago, and was absolutely petrified about driving in the city, but my Civic helped me conquer my fears. Its pick-up and overall excellent driving performance allowed me to zip through problem spots downtown or on the highway. I would definitely recommend this car to others."
"After a few months of research, my 2003 Honda Civic EX sedan was the first car I bought, and I hope to own it for a very long time. Its great gas mileage, style, and reputation for reliability put it on my short list, and then I was surprised by the roomy interior and comfort given its small size. I get it serviced on schedule, but have needed nothing other than oil changes and windshield wiper blades replaced (I drove it in Seattle for the first 3 years, where it rains a bit). It is a little noisy on the freeway, but i like it - I feel like I'm completely connected to the road and in control. I absolutely love my car!!! Best purchase I've ever made."
"This was my first new car and it still feels new to me. I drive an hour each direction to and from work 5 days a week and this car has never failed me. It has 67,000 miles on it and it drives the same as the day I brought it home with 150 miles on it. I have never needed to do any major repairs on it, I just keep up on my oil changes and tire rotations. There is nothing about this car that I don't like."
