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


I owned a 1992 Accord EX sedan and loved it so when I was looking for a new car, I figured I couldn't go wrong with another one. This civic has been horrible. There is a real problem with the front end. Almost every 6 months, I need new struts oup front, I've had the control arm replaced and the control arm bushings replaced. Honda has upped the warranty on the struts to 200,000km. I guess they recognize there is a front end problem with the 2001's but instead of fixing it, they are prepared to throw free parts at it for the time being. Free parts are nice but it's a real headache to take a new car in for surgery every 6 months.

Best Features

Gas mileage is excellent and power is good for a small car. The 5 speed transmission is really good. The interior is comfortable.

Worst Features

Much needed re-design of the front end. Honda knows how to make a solid little car, why didn't they do it this time?
