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

Review

The LX rides well in the city. On country roads and freeways the sound of the road comes through the floor, annyingly so. The body feels as sturdy as a box; it literally feels like a go- kart with panels. It's been quite reliable in terms of the engine, but the body is falling apart. The exterior panels are so thin and the electrical windows are poor in quality; the passenger window sticks in open position when it's humid or raining. A fun ride with definite flaws.

Favorite Features

The manual can be fun to drive. Revving through first and second gears up to redline, the car can actually move. It takes slow tight corners in the city like a go-kart.

Suggested Improvements

More sound insulation from the road at higher speeds. The stock Firestones are horrible; I replaced them with a cheap set of Korean-made Capitol Tires and what a tremendous improvment.
