1998 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan
I bought this car because of it's
reliability record (after owning a very
troublesome and expensive VW VR6). It
only has 28,000 miles on it and the
automatic transmission needs to be
replaced because of a design defect
which causes it to shift brutally hard.
Unfortunately, it's out of warranty and
its a $4000 problem for me. I've
discussed this with more than one Honda
dealer and it's not an uncommon problem,
so watch out!!
