    The quality of the 7th gen. Civic was excellent.
    The interior and the exterior both were excellent.
    IMO the only thing missing in it were the Airbags.
    I'll answer your questions one by one.

    1: Regarding fuel economy the car is not that much fuel efficent, The best I got was 11km/litre with a light foot.
    2: One of the smoothest shifting experience, Never had any such experience like gear stuck etc etc.
    3: Yes, that was an issue and I was never able to set the handbrake according my my liking, It was good enough to stop the car from going backwards if parked on a slope but I was not satisfied with it.
    However I believe that this was not a manufacturing defect and was most probably due to a worn out cable or some minor settings.
    4: Excellent braking, no issue with the brakes. VTi has 4 Wheel ABS brakes where as EXi has 4 wheel disc brakes.
    5: AC is excellent, However I also felt that Corolla,s AC performs slightly better but still the AC of Civic is excellent.

    Coming to the difference in variants,

    EXi was the base model with a 1500cc non VTEC engine.
    It had 14" steel wheels with wheel caps,4 wheel disc brakes.
    Interior was the same.

    VTi was having a 1600cc VTEC engine.
    It had 15" alloy wheels with 4 wheel disc brakes and was equipped with ABS.

    VTi Oriel was the top of the line variant with additional features like sunroof,retractable side mirrors and adjustable seat height for the driver seat.
    It had the same engine as in VTi.

    Prosmatec stands for PROgressive Shift Management Technology.
    It was the name give to the cars with automatic transmission.
    So a VTi or an EXi with a Prosmatec sticker means that it is having automatic transmission.

    Since you'll be looking for a used car so I'll prefer you to get the top of the line variant i-e VTi Oriel in good condition.

    Now coming to the engine details.

    EXi: 1500cc 4 cyl. 16 valve non VTEC engine producing around 110 hp.
    Engine code d15y3.

    VTi & VTi Oriel: 1600cc 4 cyl. 16 valve VTEC engine producing around 130 hp.
    Engine code d16w9.

    My opinion?
    If you find a neat and clean one, go for it.
    You wont regret your decision.
    Good Luck!
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    happy ramzan to all of u
    1.the car wil consume higher petrol as compared to a cultus ofcoarse but drinking petrol is absurd,but yes it wil consume alot of fuel if u drive it on high rpms on the time
    2. not true to wt i know
    3. you can always get the handbrake tightened
    4.the brakes are good
    5.the ac is good as well

    when u shift from a cultus to a civic,u will surely be v satisfied and happy,hope this helps

    You dont need a handbrake - leave the car in 1st for manual and P for auto. simple.. and the handbrake is supposed to be used for parking - not drifting.

    The only stupid issue you may find in some of these generation civics is that you cannot align them straight, some shops however have made some trick tools to rectify this problem.

    Although daniyalahmad has given a good complete detailed answer to your query i'll answer it again upon your request!

    The 2005 Civic is an excellent trouble free car if maintained properly.

    1. For petrol, yes its a gas guzzler.. I'm getting 8-8.5km/L in City with AC (since I tend to rev it alot) but if driven with a light foot it goes up to abt 9-9.5Km/L!

    2. Not at all.. the prosmatec tranny's shifting as smooth as silk, there's no jerk at all and no the gears dont get stuck in prosmatec(neither in manual).

    3. Yes, the handbrake was an issue. It was due to low quality cables given by the company.. but after replacing them with good quality ones its satisfactory now!

    4. Brakes of VTi Prosmatec are outstanding... depending on the condition of the Disc pads and its ABS system... if both are in pristine condition then its brakes are awesome. The last time I measured its 100Km/h - 0Km/h, it was about 3 seconds to dead stop!

    5. A/C is much more chilling then Corolla's.. The reason why corolla's AC seems more chilled is because its fan speed's noise is much more, else both have the same speed.

    The problems I've faced so far are with its ignition coil.. it gave me a few problems, but got that repaired and changed the battery and now its working fine!
    Otherwise, just maintain it periodically(Oil, oil filter and Air filter change) and it shall serve you well

    The differences between the variants are well described by daniyalahmad.

    The 2005 Honda Civic eagle eye was an excellent car of its choice.
    coming to your questions.
    1:It has not very good fuel consumption.The max you can get is 9km/l in city.
    2rosmatic and manual both are smooth.
    3:yes it has prob
    4:Brakes are excellent in both EXI and VTI.
    5efinitely AC of corolla is more chiller.
    Rest all is explained by daniyalahmed
