Front-end gremlins ruined a great car

2001 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This was my third Civic. Had some quality problems when new - sticking map light, weak cassette player wouldn't play tapes. Apart from that, it was great - fun to drive, great mileage. At 40,000, front end starts making noise. 2001 Civics are plagued with front suspension problems. New tires, alignment, no better. Noise got worse, warranty was up, had to get rid of it. Bought a Saturn Ion. Shape up, Honda, or more people will leave.

Best Features

Steering, shifter (best in business), interior quality, fun to drive, smooth engine.

Worst Features

Acknowledge the front end problem (no recalls or bulletins despite many owners' issues on this and other sites). Improve build quality, or move production back to Japan or Canada (other two Civics were made in Japan and Canada and had NO problems whatsoever, this one made in USA).
