2005 Honda Civic Ex Sedan — Slightly Under Powered but tight into corners. Transmission is crisp on shifts. Great gas mileage and spacious trunk. 10000 Mile maintenance schedule saves money also. Overall it's just a fun car to drive. In my opinion, looks better then the new Sedans.

Pros: Gas Mileage. Responsive handling.

Cons: Underpowered, Can only manually shift as low as 2nd gear on the automatic.

Not A Family Car — This was a Honda Civic Type-R, 2.0 petrol with VTEC. I bought it from new and sold it at three years, partly because I was bored with its good features and began to see the disadvantages more clearly. You really need to drive this car, but its performance and road holding was superb, although its turning circle wasn't great and could be hard to park in some car parks. I was getting about 240 miles/tank which means that I was spending more time at the garage than I wanted. It has the most flexible gearbox I have ever used, it just doesn't care. The only repairs I had to have done were body work repairs. I like its cut down look, and butch radiator grill, but its not for everyone's taste. On the down side, it is very noisy, exacerbated by the VTEC engine which delivers its best acceleration at 6000 rpm +. Sloppy driving can lead to a very jerky ride for passengers, and the Recarro seats arn't always very comfortable for longer journeys.

Pros: flexible gear box, butch looks, reliable

Cons: incredibly noisy, small fuel tank and water reservoir, not very comfortable for longer journies

I Love My Civic :) — Not a particularly fast or luxury car, but I still absolutely love it. I love the way it looks and I'm doing some mods and there are so many choices for Civics... I got it for a great price with not a lot of miles and I get pretty great gas milage.

Pros: Everything o:)

Cons: Slow-ish acceleration

Good Commuter Car — I bought this car for my 150 mile daily commute. It started out at 36mpg and 90,000 miles later, it gets 30-32mpg. Interior build quality is average. 2006 model has all of the improvements I wish mine had. I wouldn't call it a fun car to drive but it is dependable.

Pros: Good gas mileage. Dependable. No repairs needed to date.

Cons: It's a commuter car.

2005 Honda Civc Dx — I got the value package so it was real cheap but not a good build quality, and lacking in performance transmission build, brakes, and style. The performance is there and has potential but doesn't really have much pick up even at upper RPMs but it corners nice, just too much body roll and lacking in breaking power despite the low body weight. engine is a Honda so its great engine they should have just put more thought into the build quality of the interior

Pros: Good engine, strong car, great economy

Cons: crummy interior, no performance
