2003 Honda Civic Description

Reliable - 30+ MPG - Your perfect commuter car!

After over 10 years of loving my Civic dearly I was able to afford an upgrade and am looking to find it a good second home. The car is in fantastic mechanical condition but has some minor cosmetic issues, which do not affect how it runs. The majority (over 50%) of the miles on the car are highway miles, having taken countless trips up and down I-5 to Oregon and Southern CA. The go-to car for me and my friends on dozens of road trips all over the western US. It runs like a dream and should continue running for another 150k to 200k more miles, at least, if treated properly.

For a few years the car was parked in my SF neighborhood, which inevitably means some cosmetic damage occurred:

  • Small spot of missing paint on right front bumper.
  • Driver side door has couple medium dents.
  • Minor scratches and dings on different areas of the car/bumper.
  • Rusting on top strip of driver side door.
1 accident - 2006 - Front left of car impacted - Everything repaired by insurance and no issues since.


Cosmetic issues and accident mentioned above have not affected how the car runs. Has never broken down on me. My mechanic at Japan Auto in San Rafael is quite impressed with the working condition of the car.

  • 150k Major service - $470 value

  • Timing belt should last another 90-140k miles!
