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


Review

First Honda I had purchased and I love it! Have owned Chevy and Ford small cars and this Civic outclasses them all - by a wide gap. I really like that the car is still worth something after having it for a while. I would definately buy another and recommend one to others. My wife likes to drive it too. I am 6'3" and fit into it okay. I commute a lot and the fuel economy is excellent!I bought it to commute and that it does that very, very well.


Best Features

fuel economy and good looks


Worst Features

Defroster operation without the "forced on" AC on would be nice. Let me choose to use the AC or not!

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


Review

Great fuel economy even for a lead foot. I drive 80 mph 195 mile round trip 5-6 days per week. The car has 207,000 miles. Just had second timing belt installed which included water pump, ouch $$$. The first time didn't include water pump. This vehicle still has the original brakes and clutch, so I’ve saved $$$ there. Suspension has been repaired with aftermarket parts, as further adjustment wasn't available to maintain camber. This car loves tires, Michelins have held up the best over firestone and Goodyear, so that's what I’ll put on next. At 6'5" 290 lbs I fit better than any other small car. A center armrest would have made this a luxury car for me.


Best Features

Well, this is an economy car. Not a car would have purchased, say, if I only lived 10 miles from work? Ok, reliability, function and fuel economy.


Worst Features

Stronger suspension for road warriors, hey, isn't that why most people by a small car, long commutes? A center armrest could save me some neck & shoulder problems. The passenger seat is a little too high for an armrest. Better fuel economy can't be too hard. 1970's Datsun got 40mpg, of course 50 hp.

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


Review

This is a good first car. I bought it off a family member. Fuel economy is EXCELLENT, highway driving can see upwards of 45 MPG. The engine is weak at low RPMs, and passing power isn't the greatest. This isn't too big a deal for a relatively gentle driver for myself. Steering is EXCELLENT; the car is very nimble and easy to steer, with a very logical and intuitive feel to the wheel. I always feel in control of the car.


Best Features

Fuel economy, space (for economy car), steering, transmission, climate control system, looks.


Worst Features

ABS isn't available on LX. 2001 Body trim has some interior trim problems (door panels, rattles) and the seats are very hard. Honda fixed these by the 2003 model.

Review

Replaced a '97 Civic LX for this lease return. Styling, space, interior conveniences and power/tranny combo seem better than the '97. Suspension not as responsive & sone additional road noise than the '97. Overall a fantastic West Coast Canadian commuter. Very pleased. PS Still own a '90 Accord EXR for longer road trips.


Best Features

Styling, seating comfort, fuel economy, interior layout and overall driveability are exemplary for a compact.


Worst Features

ABS brakes for wet pavement.

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


Review

Bought this car because I wanted a reliable ride and that is exactly what I got. It does have rattles as other reviews point out and that's annoying, but that is about it. It rides nicely and I get 38 highway and about 29 to 30 in the city. Not too bad. The ride is extremely smooth. My next car will most likely be another Honda.


Best Features

Love the control layout. Very easy to reach the controls that I used most often.


Worst Features

Engine noise can be loud when merging onto a highway and it needs the rattles fixed.
