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


The Civic's an excellent city car- for short distances and especially for city driving, the car really is the best out there. If your driving habits include long distances, high speeds, or long commutes, then forget it. The noise levels above 75mph are ridiculous, the car is easily deflected at highway speeds by trucks and crosswinds, and the seats aren't that comfortable (no lumbar support). For short hops, though, none of these problems are large enough to be noticeable. Spend some quality time with the car, however, and you notice those things plus the fact that the suspension (on 01s at least) is too soft for optimal control.

Best Features

The gas mileage is great, the control layout is excellent, and for the car's size, there's a pretty good amount of space inside. Plus, my car's been extremely reliable.

Worst Features

There is nowhere near enough storage in this car. There are two map pockets and that's about it. The trunklid needs a release button on the remote control. There needs to be some additional sound insulation, too, not to mention somewhere to put the gas cap.
