Honda Civic = Acura 1.7EL Problems

Vehicle

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

Review

The new generation Civic and Acura 1.7EL (in Canada) are not worth the extra money you have to pay, for the car and for the insurance. Side airbag sensors went out at 15000 km (costed Honda $750 for replacement and me 3 trips to the dealer). There is no protective shroud in the front wheel well; that means the engine bay is exposed to the salt and dirt from the wheel well. Various rattles and noises; car does not feel as solid. Front shocks went out at 25000 km. Huge gap in assembly of plastic trim pieces. Handbrake button cracked at 9000km. Nice design and good packaging of neat features, but poor assembly and cheap North American autoparts.

Favorite Features

Heated mirrors, very useful in Canadian winters.

Suggested Improvements

Send Hondas back to Japan for final assembly and quality checks.
