2005 Honda Civic

It seems people driving the newer 2005 Honda Civic are having minor issues with their automobiles that other drivers simply take for granted with their older vehicles. Otherwise fuel economy, low emissions, low maintenance, basic comfort and storage space are all standard with the Civic.

The 2005 keyless entry models have no trunk release, and road noise was also mentioned as a slight annoyance. Let's hope that Honda is reading the same reviews as us.
