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


Review

Good car to drive and good mileage. Very poor quality. Power window doesn't work, front strut failed at 46,000. Front bearing went out at 47000. Rear defroster doesn't work. Front air dam keeps falling off.


Best Features

Good mileage


Worst Features

Fix the problems in the front end.

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


Review

A previous Toyota owner. Bought brand new. Driven for almost 5 years. Consideing it's a small car, accelation and braking is fine and spacious inside. Easy and simple to use inside layout. Check engine light came on and off and stayed on. Turned out a major tranny(torque converter) problem covered under warranty, which would have cost close to 2K at dealer. Squeaky noises from suspensions on and off. Driving is very bouncy(No. I don't mean smooth here. still felt every bump, though. what's up with this?) but straight. Rattles from behind somewhere on and off. MPG is not as good as advertised. Overall decent but not excellent. Honda reliablity and sporty driving. None there with this Civic.


Best Features

Consideing it's a small car... 1. Accelation and braking is fine. 2. Spacious inside as well as trunk. 3. Overall very reliable. It has not broken down on the road.


Worst Features

Honda knows all the problems...Suspensions(fix bouncy driving, weakest link)...Tranny(second weakest link but as bad as suspensions)...rattles...

Review

Well what can I say, I have owned a 91 GMC Jimmy, a 94 GMC Sanoma, a 02 Pontiac Firebird, and a 04 Ford Explorer! And this car has to be the best overall car I have owned. I bought it used with 72K Miles on it and it runs as if brand new. There are a lot of bumpy roads in my area and yes I still feel them but not that badly. There is a little bit of road noise too. Two small blind spots and a little slow off the line. But other than that I havent had any probs.


Best Features

Gas, low-maintenance, availability of after market parts!


Worst Features

All I can say is increase the noise cancelling material to a higher grade.

Review

This car is not very comfortable to drive. i bought it for it's reliability. you can feel every bump on the road and it definately does not go fast. just at the 4 year mark and 45000 miles the air conditioner died. i've had many other cars that never needed a new air conditioner and were much older. after reading other reviews i decided to dump this car. leased a new vw and surprise the warranty is a whole year longer. it is no wonder honda warranty ends at 3 years. i am now a much happier driver and do not feel every bump. i now have a lot more features too.


Worst Features

increase speed. make it more stable, so every bump is not felt. increase warranty to 4 years. add heated seats. add daytime running lights.

Review

My boyfriend and I just bought this car a few months ago, and we LOVE it. We both have older cars (him, a '67 Chevy; me, an '86 Volvo) that we love dearly, but this car takes the cake. It's very reliable, fun to drive, comfortable even for very tall people, and is very well designed, inside and out. We get about 33 mpg city and 40 highway, which is a huge money-saver. Parts are relatively inexpensive and easy to find, and the car is pretty easy to work on.


Best Features

For a small car, it's wonderfully roomy and has tons of trunk space. The control panel is very convenient. Almost everything is easy to work on.


Worst Features

The oil filter needs to be moved. It's in an odd location and makes a mess when removed.
