Beware Civic Transmission Problems

1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car used with 66k miles and was the 3rd owner. Make sure to have your tran. checked before buying a Civic. After 13k miles and 7 months, having trans. problems (struggles on hills, doesn't accelerate, jerks into gear). Have had only minor repairs/maintenance. Driving pattern includes a lot of highway, back roads, and stop and go traffic. Only complaints is the ride, you feel everything and it rides like a truck when not on the highway. Overall good car but may purchase new car with A LOT more power.

Best Features

Ergonomics, gas mileage, keyless entry, sunroof, front dash and controls

Worst Features

Better quality transmission, will take car to non-dealer transmission specialist. Have seen the people who work in the service dept of dealer and would rather take problems to a professional. Not sure if normal wear, but had to have all brakes/shoes and 2 front rotors replaced after 14k miles.
