I bought my 01 Civic new. I love the
gas mileage and I find the car to be
quite peppy. The styling is decent
(interior and exterior.) The car has
quality but for a Honda compact sedan
I would expect a bit more. First, my
insurance has gone up because Civic's
are expensive to repair. I am not to
impressed with the Firestone Tires
which were bald after 30,000 miles.
The car is noisey at high speeds and
uncomfortable for driver and passenger
on long trips. Occassionally the
brakes squeak, and just recently my
gas tank release lever stopped working
and I couldn't get my gas tank open.
Handles well, great gas mileage,
controls are neatly arranged, fun to
drive, five star crash test rating,
More power, better tires, more
comfortable seating, less road noise,
and better sheet metal on exterior (it
dents too easily!)
