Default is an 03' honda civic a good car?

im going to get a car tomorrow, and ive been looking at this silver 03' civic. i kind of like it, but i was just wondering if their good cars.. ive never owned a honda.

oh and also.. i know this may sound funny.. but i hate that the car is silver, and the side mirrors are black. it just kind of looks funny, is there any way to change that?

The Civic is a legendary model mainly because of the technologies it introduced and because it was usually better than its japanese rivals.Remember the first one,with the CVCC engine?The most fuel efficient vehicle then,efficient even 20 years after.Ahead of its time.VTEC was also an impressive feauture of civics back in the late 80s.Most Civic generations were interesting in terms of styling,and road behaviour was more than adequate on some,below average on other(ok,the 1992 VTi,on a slippery road could kill if you paid no attention).Unfortunately,the generation you want to buy,was considered weird.In terms of styling,the car was a bit bland,and its road manners dull.Imagine a Toyota Corolla.The Type-R saved this generation.I would recommend getting the Type-R if possible,or the civic that is on sale now,but used.Of course,because it is a bit dull,doesn't mean it isn't a good car.It is really reliable,consumes less than its rivals,and has a lot of space.If you don't care about sport driving,but mainly for everyday use,then go ahead.

P.S:If it isn't plastic,paint it!Or replace it with the mirror of another civic model(of the generation you will buy of course)

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here -
