i thought honda's were built to last
By hilary on
2001 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
This car is not very comfortable to drive. i bought it for it's reliability. you can feel every bump on the road and it definately does not go fast. just at the 4 year mark and 45000 miles the air conditioner died. i've had many other cars that never needed a new air conditioner and were much older. after reading other reviews i decided to dump this car. leased a new vw and surprise the warranty is a whole year longer. it is no wonder honda warranty ends at 3 years. i am now a much happier driver and do not feel every bump. i now have a lot more features too.
increase speed. make it more stable, so every bump is not felt. increase warranty to 4 years. add heated seats. add daytime running lights.
