Most reliable vehicle I have ever owned!

2004 Honda Civic

First off, my car is a Honda so I absolutely love it because knowing it's a Honda, it will last a long time for my family and I. My dad always told me how Honda's engines last longer than most vehicles. I only rate my specific car 4 out of 5 stars because at about 160,000 miles, my steering pump hose needed to be replaced but that was a cheap and easy fix. The only other reason why I rate it that is because I prefer to have the DX version of the civic vs the LX I have so I can reverse immediately as I'm slowly in forward motion. I have a manual transmission so it's nice to be able to do that without completely stopping but only some cars have that option, and I believe the DX or the EX version of the civic does that. Besides all that, I love my car because it's so dependable and that's the most important thing when looking for a car. My power steering hose needed to be replaced and even though I shouldn't have, I drove with my car like that for over 2 years without replacing it and it was still very reliable. I also drove my car like this almost everyday at least 100 miles so that tells anyone how reliable Honda's are.

Little Loyal Blue Civic Takes on Mother Nature, Apocalyptic Flooding and Wins! (even the driver was being an idiot)

2004 Honda Civic

My husband bought this car brand new from the lot. It was his primary car because we'd gotten a 2005 Honda CR-V in 2012 after we had our daughter. Unfortunately the CR-V was stolen and the insurance payout was just enough to pay off the loan. One week after we paid the bank back, they found the CR-V. I'm not sure if I will ever get over it. So we really couldn't afford another big loan then and my husband started driving a 2000 Ford Taurus my parents weren't using. He wanted me and our daughter to have the better car. It's a sturdy little car and runs great considering the torture I've put it through. I got swept away in a flash flood about a year and a half ago! I thought I was going to die! Not metaphorically, very much literally. The water was getting into the tops of my knee high galoshes. Someone finally saw me (it was evening and stormy) and they found a way to tow me out. My daughter was NOT in the car. Would you believe that Honda drove to the car wash and then home?! And after less money than you'd think it's still going?!

Reliable model with the potential to keep you on the road for decades.

2004 Honda Civic DX

The 2004 Honda Civic Sedan DX is a reliable model, has lasted 15+ years with 200k+ in mileage. Have never encountered any problems with transmission. All repairs and parts have been affordable and easily acquired. It is possible to replace the engine with a new-used Japanese engine for a small cost and add life to the vehicle, because those replacement engines are retired extremely early, at about 50k miles, due to air pollution standards in Asia and reaching a maximum period on the road. The only downfalls are that with the DX trim, everything is very basic (manual windows and locks, no cruise control, no Bluetooth), and the interior rooftop upholstery does start to drop down a little, due to the adhesive wearing off over time and across temperatures. There is a lot of space throughout the trunk, when the back seats are folded down, to transport large items. There are not any luxury features but the car is still comfortable
