A So So Vehicle...
By JTNYC on
2001 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
My vehicle is a 2002 EX but I wanted to
post this now! Hopefully it will help
someone out if you are thinking of
buying a Civic for reasons of low gas
mileage! This model gives me 23-25
mpg, 85% highway and 15% local. I
brought it to the Dealership at
Hillside Honda in NYC where I
purchased the vehicle and they said
that no-one is getting the 32-38 miles
per gallon b/c all cars are on
oxygenated gas and they won't perform a
fuel consumption test. This says a lot
about the service behind the name Honda
doesn't it...crummy services! I will
stick with Toyotas or Lexus if I have
more money! I have learned my lesson!
Two things...reliability and handling!
But what's the point, I wanted it for
its gas mileage along with reliablility
The price of the EX is about 16,600
plus tax and papers will come to about
18,500+...I think it should get more!
The vehicle is way too noisy on
highways! Needs to improve the gas
mileage, and up the horse power!
