Good for the money
By Mr. Porter on
2001 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
A very reliable vehicle, very low
maintenance. The only problem I have
had is there was a defective part in
the transmission that had to be
replaced, which the on-board sensors
picked up almost immediately. The
performance of this car is superb and
it handles exceptionally well. The gas
mileage/fuel efficiency is tops for
anyone that has a substantial commute
(about 30 mpg with 87 grade gas and
about 40 with 93 grade). Not only is
it a "green" vehicle, it is a very well
designed and is definitely worth more
than what you pay for it.
Comfortable seats, excellent gas
mileage, sleek design, good handling.
Could use some more durable plastics
for the interiors (have had some minor
cracks). A/C on front defroster cannot
be turned off, only made warmer.
Location of engine parts and fluids
almost makes doing your own "under the
hood" maintenance impossible.
