I bought our Civic with high
expectations. I love the engine and
gearbox. The suspension is
comfortable, although not a sporty as I
would like. The car is roomy and
enjoyable to drive. HOWEVER, the build
quality is terrible - From the moment
we got the car is needed a new radio,
and a clunk in the front suspension
still exists after 3 attempts to
repair. The front seat has had three
attempts at repairing it - the bushings
fair after 6 months. Hmmm... what
else - oh yes, the window regulator has
been replaced, the engine computer
reprogrammed to stop the car
stalling... Not what I expected from a
Honda - I am very disappointed
Love the VTEC Engine and gearbox...
tighten up the suspension - more
sporty. Fix the rubber strip under the
front air dam - falls off regularly.
Fix the build quality - this is a Honda
not a GM car !!
