2001 Honda Civic Coupe DX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought the car stock for under 4g back in 08 with 60k miles. I drove over 40k on it so far and no problems at all. I drive the hell out of it too, doing stuff like burnouts and dumping the clutch. First gear and second gears are really fast, but 3 and 4 are useless for acceleration. And to be doing 80 on the highway in 5th gear it will rev pretty high into the 4000's. The engine gets pretty loud at high revs just the way I like it, the car it self is actually very quiet inside. Bottom line: not the fastest or most stylish of cars, but it gets the job done at a good price and almost free maintenance!


Best Features

cheap fold down back seats extend trunk space easiest manual to drive light clutch and steering wheel


Worst Features

vtec engine. not this weird 1.7 L crap

2001 Honda Civic Coupe LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car from a private seller with 84,000 miles on it, little did I know that the car sustained sub- frame damage but was corrected. My transmissions clutch started to go at 125,000, but that was because the previous owner drove it hard and didn't take care of it. Other than that, this car rocks. I get 45 miles to the gallon and the interior is soft and sleek. This car is extremely reliable and the engine purrs quietly like its brand new and drives like its new. Make sure to replace all the engine and timing belts for long lasting performance. Switch to Mobile 1 synthetic blend. I own an automatic, buyer beware! 2001 was not the best year for this transmission. Go with a manual.


Best Features

Reliability, its comfortable, a lot of leg room for tall people. Gas mileage is awesome and its great fro driving in snow. Go front wheel drive!


Worst Features

Horsepower.

2001 Honda Civic Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Well bought my civic used and with 65,000 miles. At 77,000 miles the steering rack started leaking and needed to be replaced. All 4 struts blown at 90k miles. Headliner just coming apart and dome lights holding up material. Now at 140,000 miles mainshaft bearing in manual trans and second gear syncro. Had to replace transmission. I have been very gentle to this car and it has just turned into a money pit.

2001 Honda Civic Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have owned this Civic for over 3.5 years, bought it at 60k miles and now has 132k miles. Haven't had many problems with the vehicle during this time, replaced brake pads and drums and that is about it. I bought this car based on Hondas reputation and the low operating costs (good gas mileage, doesn't require a lot of repairs). I would definitely not buy a civic again. The ride is very bumpy and it isn't a fun car to drive. Also, the transmission went out at 132k miles and to repair would be over $2k. The car is barely worth that much and needs new tires, struts, and engine work so it is not worth repairing.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, was rarely in the repair shop.

2001 Honda Civic Coupe LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 2001 civic couple lx new. I bring my baby to the Honda hospital for every oil change and inspection required. The only thing I've changed on my car in 8.5 years are wiperblades, not even a lightbulb. The suspension isn't the best, feel every bump pretty much, but completely bullet proof car.
