Beware Civic Transmission Problems
By Concerned on
Vehicle1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewI 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 FeaturesErgonomics, gas mileage, keyless entry, sunroof, front dash and controls
Worst FeaturesBetter 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.
