Most Overrated Car on the road! Really.
By godawgs2008 on
2001 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this car brand new for my daughter's 16th birthday. Why, because I wanted the very best reliability for the money. It was a slam dunk according to "everyone". "What a long, strange trip it's been"... Reliability issues, one after another. Failed auto Door locks. Failed power windows. Failed front and rear struts. Failed transmissions (if this has not happened to you yet, be patient it will. It is a manufacturing defect. Leaky/noisy sun roof Could have bought a Cavalier for this.
Fuel economy Hype, which keeps the resale value artificially high.
Go back to the drawing board. Like most everyone else, learn from Toyota.
