Great Vehicle But Now Uses Some Oil
By davewdmia on
2001 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
The only complaint I have now is that my vehicle now has 130K miles on it, and I have to add about 2 tenths of a quart of oil to it every 2 weeks or so.
It never used to use any oil, and does not appear to be leaking any oil onto the driveway, so I am unsure where it is leaking, or if it is using oil.
No apparent leakage from the valve cover gasket either.
If a reader knows about oil leaks with this vehicle, please respond to my ad.
Otherwise, this has been the most dependable vehicle I have owned, with little maintenance.
My Honda Civic was a great buy with 51K miles on it for $6750.
I had to add cruise control for another $450.
Great winter handling and good acceleration.
Much better acceleration than the Toyota Corolla, but not quite as good of gas mileage as the Corolla.
I owned a 1988 Corolla with 212K miles on it that finally gave out.
Front end makes some popping noises when I hit bumps, but recently replaced some parts on the front end.
