Bough it a year ago for my wife. Since
then I had to tighten to nut that holds
the wiper and... that's it. Just
regular maintance. It's a good reliable
car. I understand that my wife thinks
it's too weak, but it's a commuter car,
not a racing car. (She used to have a 5
spd '93 Civic DX when a teen & drive it
at 100-120 mph) I commend this car for
reliabilty. So far, so good.
I totally love my civic. In the 8 years I have owned mine, my exhaust went up and the O2 sensor and air control valve have went up. No other problems what so ever with her. The transmission does run a little rough. I change the oil about every 5,000 miles and with the economy sucking, it helps to have a fuel efficient vehicle. I think next I might buy a Honda CR-V, still great gas mileage but a tad bigger. The dealership where I bought mine actually send me stuff all the time asking to buy my car back, because of its low mileage. I only have 79,000 miles on it. The resale price is GREAT. Definitely holds its value.
Body style, brake performance, easily maintainable
Should have all models available in V6, need to get the switching of gears in transmission smoother.
I bought this 2000 civic Dx, the gas is cheap, is a little more expensive than American car, but its worth it to spent a little more for better quality. I'm just 19 years old, I paid it all in cash, and is my first car, so I think is a good car, a very good car, 00 Civic rocks!
