2001 Honda Civic 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.

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


Review

I love my Hondas, I've driven my share, but this may be the last one I own. The last two Civics had front end problems. The one I have now, has a rear main seal leak, which I'm not happy to hear at this point of owning this car. I can't pull all the way up to the curb because I may pull the entire front end off when pulling away because it sits way too low.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage. I will miss getting 39 MPG (30 in the city).

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


Review

I bought this car with only 70k and it's the worst Honda ever made. Don't get me wrong, I love Hondas and I've had two previous little civics that have lasted me well over 200k. But wow I never thought that Honda would fail me, till now. Had to fix transmission at 75k! I have older Hondas with more miles and with the original tranny! Had to change the muffler cuz it rattles really bad every time u go over a water puddle. Lots of road noise and rattles. Changed both bearings. AC is weak! Overall only thing worth is the style of the car, but that really fooled me. Terrible car, and this is coming from somebody with a civic forum acct as well. Be careful. Worst Honda ever! Do the research, trust me!


Favorite Features

Style, interior, handling, mileage.


Suggested Improvements

TRANSMISSION!, road noise, road uncomfortable. Tires, rattles. A/C.

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


Review

My wife bought this car new back in 2001, it now has 136K miles, never any repairs just regular service like, spark plugs, timing belt, trans service, brake pads and regular oil change every 3-4K miles, great car for the money. Great gas mileage. It still fills like the fist day.


Favorite Features

This car is a money saver, remember it is not a Mercedes or BMW, so don't expect luxury.


Suggested Improvements

None, I love Honda, keep doing what are you doing.

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


Review

Been driving this car for 155000 miles.... not a single repair; only scheduled maintenance. Absolute performance isn't great, but if you factor in the gas mileage and engine displacement, it's quite good and all I really need for around the town driving. Interior is holding up extremely well for its age. All the trim pieces are as tight as the day I bought it and the soft touch material on the dash exudes quality. The ride is very smooth though the wind and engine noise can be slightly obtrusive at high rpm and speed. Lots of rear leg room and large trunk. This car has aged like fine wine whereas my old Saturn SL1 aged like stale beer.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage (34MPG with a lead foot), ride comfort, engine and transmission refinement, interior and overall build quality, roomy for its size.


Suggested Improvements

Performance, engine and wind noise, would prefer slightly more substantial steering feel.
