Is this car really a Honda?
By Jesse on
2001 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Note to all looking for this car... it falls apart at 80k. Period. I've had to replace the tranny ($2800), another timing belt/water pump/tensioner ($850), shocks ($880), resently. My opinion is that shocks and a tranny should last more than 80k especially on a honda. I almost have more money into this car than I could trade it in for in only the last month. I can't believe Honda would put thier name on this heap...and I maintained mine good too.
It's gutless. I hear from all three of the mechanics I spoke to that they are finding the trannys going on these at about 80k. Every mechanic (5) I spoke to noticed this.
