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


I bought the car new to commute 80 miles a day. Overall its been a good car, but over the course of the last year, I've spend at least the value of the car in repairs to keep it on the road. It's needed a new manifold (cracked at 70k), radiator, shocks, springs, bushings, end links, manual transmission, on top of the maintenance items like brakes and tires. I've also had a recurring problem with the spark plug coils that blow fairly regularly, however my mechanic has been able to replace this under his warranty. The motor still runs like new or close to it so I've continued pouring into the car since I have a hard time justifying a new car with such a long commute.

Best Features

mileage, average around 33. interior room, nice motor but not easy to add after market parts on the LX version

Worst Features

stronger transmission, better suspension parts
