10 Years, 160K Miles, and Still Running Strong
By rtwoods on
2001 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
We purchased this car from the original owner in 2006 with about 100k miles. We now have about 160k miles and this Civic has been super reliable.
Simple maintenance only (oil, brakes, timing belt). A couple minor, weird issues: had to replace both automatic window regulators, throttle and acceleration are becoming slower.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this car. Plus I've achieved over 40 MPG on numerous flat trips.
- high MPG
- great interior layout and night color scheme
- super reliable with no high maintenance costs or problems
- easy to drive
- no floor hump in the middle of the backseat
- noisy interior
- stick shift and throttle need adjustment
- poor acceleration
- uncomfortable seats
- poor stereo system
