    I just purchased an 05 and it all really depends. I found that where you live effects the price... states with lower economic status have cheaper cars, depends on the milage and what type of mileage (freeway or city) depends on if it has mods, depends on if it is a WRX, or a 2.5 rs, or an STI. lol if you can get back to me on exactly what you are looking for a can give you a close estimate...

    its really hard to come across a nice one in good condition with low mileage. 30-50k is what you'll most likely see. and it should be between $14-16k depending on the condition its in and where you live.

    the car itself is very reliable (of course if youre buying used the reliability depends on the previous owner and how well they took care of it) and gas mileage depends on how you drive.. but most of us get anywhere from 20-27

    ahem. haha but yeah in orlando, the honda scene is TERRIBLE. literally 2-3 cars gone every week. my friends got stolen 2 times... its just.. getting so bad. you cant even go to the mall or universal studios, etc.. without having to worry. i'm just glad i got rid of mine when i did.

    its nice to know that your car is somewhat safe at night and when you go out.

    welcome to the club. Never was much of a honda fan but that is one damn nice looking car. Done very tastefully. Honda/Acura seem to be the target of choice for jackers.

    yeah - I guess I didn't realize but the OP's civic was once again listed as the most stolen car in America for the 3rd year.

    Welcome to the club - I'm a former EJ6 owner..


    Word of advice, if you can keep the hatch AND get a subaru, do it. You'll miss the dependability, lack of stuff breaking, and fuel economy of the civic, once it's gone.

    Here's a pic of my old turbo B18C-powered hatch (CX)..

    yeah, 16x7 slips.

    The subaru is reliable, as long as you don't thoroughly abuse it.

    TT is worthless, really. The turbos are water-cooled, so no real need for the TT. The dealio with the WRX/STI (subaru in general) is that adding "performance" parts like you would a Honda, is completely different. Like: CAI.. It's not really needed, unless you're big HP stuff.. Many make well over 300 with stock airbox. And since the Suby is Mass Airflow Sensored (your civic is MAP-sensored), it doesn't like 'bolt-ons', and doesn't take to them so care-freely. With a Civic, you can do I/H/E with no ill effects, only power gains, without touching the ecu.. Not so, with the Subaru..

    well, yes..
    A up/downpipe swap, and/or intake swap, etc, all, will require remapping.

    The subaru ECU is VERY sensative, unlike the P28/30/72 ECUs of the honda world, which are very forgiving.

    THe subaru ECU will give you the fat finger, in very short order, if you make mod changes and not tell it about them..
