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


Review

I purchased this car in March oh 2004 and it already had 115,00 miles on it. Being a Honda, the miles didn't bother me since I had a 1990 Accord that was still going strong with no problems. However I must say this car has not been as good as the old Accord. It needed front struts on it only months after I got it. The a/c compressor went bad shortly thereafter. Now the alternator needs replaced. However I will say the car now has 148,000 miles and still doesn't leak any oil or burn it either. I change it every 4000 miles and never have to add any oil between changes. It has an automatic tranny that is beginning to slip,only when it's cold for now. Hoping to get 200,000 before it bites the dust!


Best Features

Sunroof, good take-off for a small motor, handles well, great gas mileage. 25-30 in the city, 35 or better on the E-way.


Worst Features

Better suspension, has a rough ride, feel every bump, struts need improved, over all, not bad, will probably buy more Honda's in the future.

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


Review

I bought the Civic for its reputation for reliability; buying an '01 and getting the first year of a new model turned out to be a bad thing. Got a great price on a cute little red coupe that, honest to God, had only been driven 3K miles in 2 years by a little old man. Couldn't believe my luck, loved my car very much and planned to buy another new Civic someday, until the transmission suddenly mangled up and died for no reason at 80000 miles. Three thousand dollars in repair costs that I can't afford. According to what I've read online, the '01's tend to do this to people. Thanks a lot, Honda, you've lost a future customer. Toyota and VW look pretty good right now!


Best Features

Fun to drive!


Worst Features

Reimburse me $3400, Honda! Are you listening?

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


Review

I have owned this car for 3 years I honestly can say it's one of the best cars I have ever owned. I have 89,000 miles on it, never once have had any major issues. Aside from a few minor repairs from wear and tear, nothing major has happened to it. I must say that I'm very pleased with the outcome of this car.


Best Features

Gas mileage, hands down. I get about 40 on the highway.


Worst Features

A/C.

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


Review

I have 105,000 on this car and the only repair I've had to make is a headlight that burned out about a month ago. Still the original brakes! Second set of tires still look good. I drive a lot of highway miles and average 40+ mpg. This is a great car. The only reason I'm getting rid of it is to buy a 2006 Civic EX coupe.


Best Features

Mileage!


Worst Features

Road noise while on the highway could be improved on.
