"Don't settle for walking. Get to the action in a hurry by commandeering a civilian car. In times of war, some laws are bound to be broken."
— Instruction Manual Description
In Battlefield 2: Special Forces, the Civilian Car is a light vehicle used by the United States Navy SEALs. It holds two player, one as a driver, and one using their weapon on the sunroof. It lacks any mounted weapons, has a low amount of health and drives moderately fast. These traits favor it to be used as a transport to get quickly around the map.
In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, the Car only makes an appearance on the multiplayer map Backstab. It can be found scattered about the city at various control points.
The vehicle is best used as a transport vehicle, although a passenger located in the sunroof can use whatever kit weapons they have, meaning the car can be used as an improvised hit and run vehicle with some coordination against enemy armor. However, the car has very weak armor, not being optimized for military use, and will succumb to enemy fire quickly if the driver is not careful and exposes the vehicle to armor.
