2000 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

too bad. i missed out on buying a new one. mine is used. a poor sap sold it to me. i have put 120k on mine in past 10 years. i am working on restoring mine now. cosmetically, NOT mechanically.
i wish i could upload a pic. even with just the new wheels/tires, it looks fantastic.

2000 Honda Civic DX 2dr Hatchback


Review

Absolutely love this car! Purchased a respectable example with low-mileage five years ago. Gave it a very comprehensive service and full detail and she has been running like a clock ever since then. Almost 130k and it consistently nets me 38-45mpg with a mix of 80% highway and 20% city driving. Although highway merging requires planning with only about 105hp, the 5sp manual helps control the power band better than the automatic. Winter conditions in an FWD are no problem with good tires and a manual.

Interior has worn very well for its age. Although not modern, it is simplistic, which is a major antithesis to the gadget-laden stuff on sale today. Hatchback is cavernous for its size with folding seats. Exterior has held up mostly well, although there are initial signs of a few rust bubbles around the rear wheels. Washed monthly and hand-waxed every couple of months has kept the paint mostly bright.

Lives up to the "bulletproof Honda" mantra. High-quality synthetic and filter every 7500mi. Issues I have had are very minor (cracked distributor cap, frozen crank window regulators, lower ball joints, wonky A/C clutch) and have been low-cost to fix with good parts.
Normal schedule for filters/fluids and preventative replacement of major wear components in the last 40k miles (clutch, brakes, full exhaust, shocks/struts, ball joints, etc.) should see this car get to 200k no problem.

I'd most certainly buy one again!

2000 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


Review

Changing the oil every 3,000 miles without fail and doing other maintenance has kept my Civic running beautifully. I drive 100 miles round trip every day to work. Enough said...getting 40 MPG.

2000 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car new off the lot in 2000 and to this day it has been the BEST purchase I have ever made.
She has a few miles on her now, over 100,000, and still runs wonderfully and I have never had a problem.
I intend on keeping this car and maintaining it to at least 200,000.


Best Features

Reliability Safety Great speakers/sound Overall appearance Comfort Easy handling LONGEVITY!


Worst Features

There really was not much that I would have changed on this car to be honest. I have had no complaints.

2000 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my 2000 Civic Si with 146k miles on it. A few thousand miles later had to rebuild the engine because the piston rings were cracked and lost compression. But every other component on the car works great (coupled with regular maintenance of course). Great power after rebuild, tons of fun especially in VTEC above 6k rpms!


Best Features

Tight suspension, decent interior upgrades over the base model civics. Seats have a lot more sporty feel than they look. Great power after rebuild, tons of fun especially in VTEC above 6k rpms! Just take care of your Honda and it will pay it back! Another plus is that the rebuild did not cost an arm and a leg because its a Honda and only a 4-cyl. 30+mpg on mid or premium grade gasoline. Also my Si gets compliments by everyone I know. They say "Hey nice car, what is it?" And then I say its a Civic and they are always surprised because they don't expect civics to look this nice!


Worst Features

They don't make the Si like they used to:( Sadly its hard to find one that hasn't been heavily modded or beaten by some 16 yr-old kid.
