Perfect First Car. — Got it for my first car two years ago and its still around. Cops re-act to it more as i have got many tickets, and it can be a fast car but just takes a little work. Hard to take out sterio, because it needs a special kit. Great car if u are looking to work on it, and a good starter car.

Pros: Looks nice, excellant gas, nice interior, good sterio

Cons: power

A Worthy, Fun Contender For Anyone Who Needs A Family/practical Car That's Fast And Fun. —

Second vehicle. Performance: in isolation, excellent. Contextual, not so good. It's not a 'hot hatch' in the conventional sense, but is certainly fast enough to provoke serious license-losing territory- this is a genuine 140mph car with a few choice mods. The engine, despite being fairly highly-strung at 80bhp/litre, has a low compression ratio and has a fairly lazy power delivery, along with a disappointingly low redline- 6,800rpm. It's strong through the gears, and is never short of a bit of torque. Build quality- it's indestructible. This car has taken a lot of punishment, from off-road jaunts to high-speed runs, with haulage for gigs and frequent friendly taxi uses. It's survived, and still looks great. The only issue- weirdly- is some slight pilling on the doorcards. That is truly churlish to bring it up on, though! Appearance... it's a subtle car. Most people don't figure that it has a reasonable amount of power, and as such it can surprise a lot of the morons in all-mouth-no-trousers cars. Inside, it's actually a really nice place to be. Cruise control, automatic air conditioning, half-leather seats and blackout dials ensure it's relaxed, comfortable and classy. It's a huge improvement over the pre-facelift models. Soft-touch plastics and a comfortable, open atmosphere all add to a distinctly modern feel. It's not the cheapest car to run, but it performs similarly to my old 206 1.1 for petrol use... which, considering it has 100bhp more, is a serious achievement. It utilises VTEC-e, which runs the engine on 12 valves below a certain amount of throttle input. If you really, really feather the car, 45mpg is entirely possible. Typically, I get 33-35mpg. Average motorway cruise is 37mpg. Town is significantly worse. Servicing costs are pretty normal, which is great considering it uses Nissin brakes. Tyres are easy to find. The car has done 90,000 miles and still has the original clutch & exhaust system. Tax is a fairly stiff £220 per year, but it's not as bad as some. CO2 output is something like 178g/km. Fun factor- yes, this car IS fun! It's not razor-sharp like a Type R. It's more a cosseting Gentleman's Express that can turn its hand to a backroad if you want it to. It pulls cornering speeds that I would deem suicidal in other cars. The traction control only cuts in if you really, really overcook things, which is nice. ABS isn't intrusive either. The handling is also fairly neutral, it's difficult to provoke understeer and lift-off oversteer is rare. According to friends, they've seen it cock a wheel under hard cornering- 8 inches off the ground! Always the test of a good, fun hatch! Overall, it's a great car. It's practical, you can take the family in it, the rear is astoundingly large (bigger than the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class of the same era), it's fairly quick, it's fun to drive, it's good on fuel, it feels well screwed together and you get the sense it was made by people who genuinely like cars. The suspension is surprisingly forgiving, seeing as it handles well. A lot better than a lot of 'posh' hatches, i.e. Audi A3 & BMW 1-Series. On that basis, what's not to like? I only give it 4 stars because it's a decent all-rounder. It's not exceptional in any one area, except spacious qualities, and I know there are cars that drive better, or get better economy, or are faster. However, finding all these qualities in one car is very difficult. This is a fantastic compromise.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Spacious, elegant, fast, drives well, economical.

Cons: So much potential but impossible to improve one area without ruining others!

2004 Honda Civic Coupe Si Hatchback Review
Guru27Z8 says:
I actually never drove the 2004 Honda Civic Si, but I have been inside one at a used dealership. I wanted to drive it, but didn’t get to. My previous car was a 2002 Honda Civic LX coupe, so it’s the same generation as this car. They both share a lot of the same aesthetic, when it comes to interior. Not all of it, but some of it. It looked and felt really nice. I liked the gauges that it showed, and what I liked a lot was the shift knob placement, it was mounted under the radio. I thought that was really cool. I wanted to get this car because of how it would be like my previous Honda Civic, but as an Si version, which had a lot more horsepower. Nevertheless, I ultimately bought a 2004 Acura RSX Type S, and I really love it. I do notice some similarities between the RSX Type S and the Civic Si. It’s really cool actually. And I really do like the interior and exterior of this Civic Si hatchback.

Power Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD better.
"The Acura RSX Type S has 200 horsepower and the Honda Civic Si 160 horsepower. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD better.
"What I like about the RSX Type S is that it has a normal coupe look, but it technically is a hatchback. It looks really sporty and cool, and I really like that. The Civic Si still looks sporty and cool in its own way, which I still like regardless. "
Front Seats Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD better.
"I like how the RSX Type S leather seats look. I do like Civic Si’s seats too though. I just feel like RSX Type S brings along side a luxury feel to it. "
Back Seats Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD better.
"What made it personally better was the fact that there’s some more features in the RSX Type S rear seats area than the Civic Si. Like RSX has cup holder placements. That’s mainly it haha. It had 2 seats only in the back, while the Civic Si has 3 seats in the back, but I do like a bit more from the RSX. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD worse.
"I’m not entirely sure the cargo capacity amount for each car, but I would assume the Civic Si would hold more since it had a bigger back. "
Family Car Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD worse.
"I wouldn’t say either car would be a family car haha, but I had to choose one, and since the Civic Si seats 5 people over the RSX Type S searing 4, I guess the winner here would be the Civic Si. "
Would Buy Ranked 2004 Acura RSX Type-S FWD better.
"I would buy the RSX Type S over the Civic Si mainly due to power. Another would be more premium features that the RSX Type S has. I like both regardless and I wish I could get both right now, but I’m happy I got the RSX Type S. "

I love my Honda Civic. I have no issues with the engine. However, the steering wheel may need an allignment. Other than that, the car runs fine and its almost at 200,000 miles. These cars hold their value for sure.
