2001 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
I got this car because I did a TON of
research on safety, reliability and
gas milage. I never bought a new car
before and wanted to be sure I got the
best car to drive my infant daughter
around in. The first thing that
aggravated me was that the fuel
economy, which was a HUGE factor in my
decision, was listed at 30city/38hwy -
WHAT A LIE. I get about 25-28. I
have brought it to two dealerships at
least 4 times to ask them to find out
why the milage is so low - they said
they couldn't find anything wrong.
Then I had several manufacturing
defections, including a wire that
opens the fuel hatch that had
snapped. I can't wait to trade this
Smooth ride. Instrumentation is all
in logical places.
FUEL EFFICIENCY SHOULD BE TRUTHFUL ON
STICKER AND ADVERTISING.
