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


Review

When it was time to retire my 1990 Accord, I knew I was going to buy another Honda because of their reliability. Unfortunately, the new Accords were out of my price range, but I fell in love with the redesigned Civic. It doesn't have the pick up of the Accord and it feels less substantial on the road but I was looking for a car that would be on the road 99.99% of the time, get good gas mileage, and protect me in an accident, not a zippy car that was "fun" to drive. I definitely got exactly what I was looking for and I have never regretted the decision to buy.

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


Review

Reliable, efficient, fun to drive - roomier than earlier Civics. The car is perfect for the daily drives, trips to the store, school, work, etc. The driver has the most fun, especially with the 5 speed. Love that 2nd gear. BUT, not the best car for long trips. Noisy with a firm, busy ride. It'll storm a long at 85, but you can't hear the radio, and the old backside begins to tire too quickly from feeling every wrinkle in the asphalt.


Best Features

5 speed transmission - but really needs a 6th gear to help with noise on the freeway. Reliability - Super gas mileage. I've massaged 40+ mpg in city driving by using every technique


Worst Features

6th gear - overdrive ratio. Some kind of variable suspension. Better wind noise control.

Review

I have had several problems with this car. There are several rattles all thoughout the interior. When I told my dealer about this, he was suprised I only had five or six rattles. The dealer has yet to fix any of the rattles. The car comes equiped with Firestone tires. They are the worst tires ever made. Honda knows about this problem but refuses to change their OEM tire. If you do buy this car, make the dealer install different tires. The sticker says the car should get 32/37 MPG. I am lucky if I get 32MPG in mixed driving. The MPG number are overly optumistic. This is the third Honda I have. This will be the last one.


Worst Features

Improve build quality.
