Vehicle2000 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewWhen I bought Civic I expected it to be as or more reliable than my previous Mazda Protege and Nissan Altima. I was proven wrong again and again. During the first week I had problems getting the ignition key out. It was a rather typical problem for auto LX sedans. Many times the rubber ceiling on the windows detached and Honda could not fix it. The paint is plainly bad, normal driving results in one paint chip a month. I also did not like at all how doors deform by half an inch when you open a window. Engine is so noisy that only loud music can save you from it sound. I was really happy to get rid of this car.
Best FeaturesExterior look, interior ergonomics, good seats for the money
Worst FeaturesPoor reliability, bad paint, noisy and underpowered engine

The issue with not being able to take the key out of the ignition, that is the problem with the lubrication of the ignition I think. Try some dry graphite grease in a tube. Stick it on your key and run in and out of the ignition and switch the ignition on and off a few times. Repeat another time. Repeat once a year. That's what I do after it got stuck once or twice, no problems now.Report it
