Great Car! — This 2005 honda civic is a very reliable car. Its engine is very strong. Very good in gas . The only con i can say about this car is that it is not big enough for a huge family. Besides that its a great car

Pros: Great car for gas

Cons: Not a family type of car

Just Plain Transportation — Want a car that will last you 15 to 20 years and you only have to change the oil and put brake pads on it? Want to look like everyone else on the road and totally blend in with the crowd? Do you only drive with one other person in the world and two small children or pets? Then the Honda Civic is for you. Great commuter car as it will certainly will not distract anyone with its looks nor attract the attention of police. Its a Honda Civic champion of the un-cool vehicles and defender of all things four cylinder. Some may argue that Civics can be cool but slapping one of those buzz bomb mufflers and nice rims and tires does not turn it into a sports car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great commuter car with OK looks for small sedan

Cons: Back seat is not for anyone over 5'8"

Reliable — Still the head of its class, the 2005 Honda Civic is the most refined, solidly built economy car on the market. Fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly engine, roomy interior, reputation for durability and quality, impressive crash test scores. Great for a commuter, or student!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Superior Gas Economy: 32 MPG - City, 38 MPG - Highway
Reliable: Low Maintenance
Safe: Front and Side Airbags

Cons: None.

Good — not thing special, but it's not bad, the wheels are the way too small. how come the standen rims only 14 inch! its pretty girly! Also the interior of Aussie version is the way too simple, the Canada's Acura EL shows the real position of 7th gen Civic!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: front lamp

Cons: rims!

Good Car For The Normal Driver — Excellent first-time car, overall decent, I wouldn't say it's fast, I top out at 110 on the highway..But it's reliable and cost-effective. I enjoy it, I would recommend it, but I would rather have a stronger, faster car like a '67 Camaro with a V8.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy

Cons: Not fast enough

Overall:

Its A Fun Car — Its like a Acura RSX Parts are hard to find and more expensive then the RSX. Its shares the suspension and motor, and its shorter and lighter then the RSX. The car is extreamily fun to drive! 125mph feels like 80mph!! 11 gallon tank $40 bucks to fill up

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

Pros: Olny made in the UK so its  an European Civic  made for 3 years then discontinued

Cons: Blindspots,  (eps) electric power stearing no pump (less wieght)

Primary Use: Commuting to work
