Would Buy It Again — I love the sporty look of my car. It is extremely reliable and dependable. You can do so many modifications to it, and they are fairly cheap. It is very fun to drive and easy to maneuver since it is so small! The gas mileage is great, I just do oil changes every 5K or so. The interior style is a little bland.. looking to get some Gucci interior soon. Never needed any major (or minor for that matter) repairs. I could drive to California and back 50 times ifI wanted to. Love it!

Great Everyday Car — Overall a good car, very efficient, gets about 25mpg in the city, performance is about as good as can be expected for a 4 cyliner engine. It is a reliable car that can be fun to drive because of how small and light it is.

Pros

It's fun, it looks good, and it's very reliable. I love it :)

Cons

More power would definitely be nice, and the road noise needs improvement.. but it's not worth complaining about.

A Short Review Or My Civic — Obviously it's a Civic, so it's not going to be anything spectacular on power, it's a peppy little car when I'm alone but when you add 3 or 4 passengers you definitely notice. It handles great as there is a lot of suspension work done to it, and the the tires are nice and grippy as well. It's an 05 and it still gets up to 40mpg so I'm more than happy with that! I think it looks great, it's definitely not an average Civic and it's all JDM :) It's a very reliable car and I've never really had any major issues with it. I've changed the clutch, but not because it went, just because km's were getting up there and I wanted a new clutch. Considering the fact that it's on low pro tires, and that it's lowered almost 2" it rides very well. Yes it's bumpy and rough but not nearly as bad as some lowered cars I've been in. The road noise is pretty bad if I'm honest, but Civic's have always struggled with that so I was already expecting it before I bought the car. And Other than that I'll just end with the fact that it's a great drivers car, as it's light, it handles very well and it's a blast to drive. I really do like it as a car

Great Car And Cheap To Maintain — Could have had the 2.0 ivtec. However the 1.7 does the job. Ive got 167 000 kms and only replaced the front rotors/pads and the front/rear sway bar end links. Great looking car in the 2 or 4 dr version. Couldnt ask for better gas mileage.

Good Biuld quality, aftermarket mods, appearance.

Cons

Performance

You Get What You Pay For It... — Not a very impressive performance as a stock car. The maximum HP and torque are delivered at a very high rpms, which makes it very slow at the start. The biuld quality is very good, as expected from Honda. The appearance is also very good, a lot of mods. available.

rode nice, 5MT trans was tight, gas miliage

Cons

slow as balls, D17 engine is not similar to any other D-series

Slow, Not To Fun, Great First Car — best looking car i ever owned, however it was stupidly slow. the gas pedal was an oppressive thing. you mash it down and were rewarded with absolutely nothing. no v-tec no acceleration no nothing. any attempt at getting anywhere fast was pointless

Like Hondas, specially Civic and Accord

So far... nothing

Good City Car, Good To Modify — Good fast car, with good body work and rimes can become an outstanding car. Comfortable inside, easy to find refactions and it has a very good re-sell rate. I believe it could had more strong motor but it's all right

Great Value For Your Money. — It was the year before they changed the body but I like mine better than the new one. Great value for your money. Handles great, only have a 4 cylinder but it has good pick up. I love taking this car for quick spins or road trips because it is a smooth ride.
