2001 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my cCvic used with 58k and immediately began having problems. First electrical(my headlights stopped working, after i fixed that i had to replace the struts (which were completly shot) at 65k then the wheel bearings, then with only 100k on it the tranny blew. I was lucky and it only cost me 2k for a used tranny. The SRS light is on and the dealership says my airbags don't work, drivers side window motor is starting to go out, the suspension needs a new axle and struts again. I would personally look into buying either a 2000 or older Civic if interested unless you like throwing money away. Great gas mileage and doesn't leak oil yet, knock on wood...
VTec, gas mileage, roomy for such a small car, stylish
Fix the transmission problems and suspension issues, it has been a nightmare!
