Honda is known for its great vehicles,
and the 2001 Civic is no exception.
Except: there are so many rattles on
this thing it's crazy. I was always
sure not to buy a first-year model, but
it happened, and I'm noticing why now.
Also, the transmission hunts for a gear
around 1500 RPM, but I blame the small
engine for that, which is very smooth
along with said transmission.
Ride quality, reliability, interior
Better securing of interior panels, a
larger base engine.
