A Great Little Surprise

by from kansas City, MO on September 7, 2010

I have had two Accords and both the first and second generation CR-V's I've traded all of them at the 100,000 mile mark.....I was mad at Honda for making the third gen CR-V look like a grandma's grocery van--so I wasn't sure what I wanted. I bought my 04 Civic Coupe used-one previous owner-basically on a whim. It took a few months to get used to the size (so much smaller than my CR-V's)and I was totally scared of winter driving. Silly me....this car has been a total delight. I've put 40,000 miles on her in two years and she hasn't even hiccouped--40-46 mpg no matter what. I did the 100,000 maintenance early and replaced the timing belt.....because I fully plan to drive this car for the next 7-10 years. It's totally a fun car to drive. I highly recommend this car for everyone.

I was surprised how this car handles on turns, etc. Very good grip and control on the road. I used to own a 96 Honda Civic about 7 years ago, and I noticed that the 2004 Honda Civic is much quite/comfortable and roomier with a VTEC in it. I changed the spark plugs, put a cold intake, and fuel cleaning system. It runs like a brand new car, and worth the purchase. It is very good on gas. I am getting about 30-33 miles per gallon depending on how I drive.

2004 Honda Civic Ex Loaded!!!

I love my little 2004 Honda Civic. I decided to get the Ex due to the alloy wheel and the sunroof which in my opinion make a big difference in the way the car looks! I travel 104 miles a day just to work and back home. I put about 30,000 a year on my car in all weather conditions and I still have not had any problem. The only service I do to the car is change the oil, tires/rotation, fluid occasionally and the timing belt because the Honda service man recommended it. I have only done service at the Honda dealership when it was free or I had a very good coupon, other then that I always use Jiffy Lube or Mavis.

Good Car for my Teenager

The Honda Civic handles well and is reasonably comfortable for a small car. We were able to find a 2004 that was in great shape for a reasonable price only because we acted immediately as soon as we found the internet ad. These cars get great mileage and they disappear off the lots as soon as they come in. My teenager loves the car!

I've always heard and been told Honda's a great reliable car and now I believe it! I've barely done any maintenance outside of oil changes and the occasional brake pad stuff. Comfort is ok and it can still handle the weather changes and craziness of city living. 80,000 miles later, its still truckin.

The 2004 civic coupe is an excellent car. Purachased used in 2008 with 54k this car has been the model of reliability. Tires and a new battey have been my largest maintenece expenses. My car now has 123000 miles and would expect to keep it until it has atleast 250k. Im over 6 feet but driver's area still has space. Has as much space as can be expected from a coupe. Have an automatic but is quick and responsive. Have to upgrade car size soon due to growing family but it will probably be an accord because my civic set a great example.

I love the Honda Civic as a little "run around" - the gas mileage is outstanding - and with the price of gas these days, who can afford NOT to have a car with great mileage. The flat rear floor is awesome - gives us a little extra room and provides added flexibility for storage. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend.
