2001 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased this car almost 4 years ago, after heavily researching it. It had 120k miles on it when I got it, now it has 208k. It consistently gets 34mpg city/hwy, and 36 all hwy. Get the 5 spd manual, I hear the auto is gutless. The front seat is ok, but for a 6'3" tall man, i'm basically in the back seat. The engine purrs and has been 100% trouble free. Kinda loud at 75mph, this is basically a tin can on wheels. It's a great commuter car but as far as road trips forget it. I just took a 3k mile road trip and my wife and I were very uncomfortable. I'd buy another one in a second for commuting. Honda cars are the best for reliability and fuel mileage.


Best Features

Fuel mileage(400+ miles) on a full tank. Maintenance is fairly low, this thing just keeps running and running.


Worst Features

Rear end of the car is a little bouncy. I wish there was a 6th gear so the engine wouldn't pull 4,000RPM's at 80mph. Feels like the engine racing on the freeway above 65mph.

2001 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car used with 60,000 miles. I was a student and couldn't afford a car that needed a lot of repairs - - this car has exceeded my expectations. Nothing has gone wrong with it and it still gets as good as mileage as when I first bought it (35 mpg). I keep waiting for the clutch to get old but it hasn't. I've replaced timing belt, tires, and brake pads. It's a beautiful car, MUCH prettier than Prius. The original paint job is really well done. Attractive dash. I've driven up & down hilly San Francisco, around town, and across the country. I only wish there were more models of Honda with such an attractive body.


Best Features

mileage, exterior design, reliability, interior design, trunk, moon roof, large trunk, alarm system


Worst Features

It's a little bumpy and noisy when driven over 70 mph. I don't like driving it in high winds.

Review

This vehicle has been great! Other than regular maintenance I have just had the struts replaced. I bought this car new in 2000 and Its still running strong it has over 130000 miles now. I get great gas mileage and the car has adequate power. The steering and brake pedal are too soft. The fuel Economy and the sunroof are nice. I wish the sound system was better, even on the top of the line ex the stereo only has 4 speakers. I highly recommend this vehicle!


Best Features

Sunroof, great gas mileage, exterior Design.


Worst Features

Softer seats, tighter steering and better sounding stereo. A V-6 option would be nice.
