2002 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Within 5 months of buying my Civic I had to have both front struts replaced. I love my Civic but I hate the suspension. I have had my car in the shop at least 10 times in 2 years for the suspension! I love the look and the drive of the car! They could offer more color choices! It gets great gas mileage! Other tahn the suspension I have no problems with the car! Thay are great little cars!


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage! Roomy trunk and interior space!


Suggested Improvements

Fix the suspension it would nice without so much road noise!

2002 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Needed new struts at the first oil change. Needed new tires and alignment also (though I drive 12 miles daily on a highway with no potholes). The radio stinks. There are cubbyholes and compartments, which would be great, but the hinges are breaking (after opening about four or five times).


Favorite Features

Pretty color


Suggested Improvements

needs a better radio, better struts, better quality of interior compartments

Review

FIT AND FINISH IS TOP NOTCH, BUT QUALITY OF MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION IS POOR. MANY THINGS HAVE FAILED ON THE VEHICLE WITHIN THE FIRST 24K. DEALERS WOULD NOT REPAIR AND IT TOOK A LAWSUIT TO GET HONDA TO FIX A ROCKING SEAT THAT HAD BEEN REPAIRED 3 TIMES PRIOR, A DEFECTIVE STEERING RACK AND FRONT STRUTS. ADDITIONALLY, THE CLOTH CAME OFF ALL 4 DOOR PANELS, THE TRUNK LOCK BROKE, THE AC DOES NOT WORK WELL, THE COMPUTER NEEDED REPROGRAMMING DUE TO EPA FAILURE, THE RADIO CHANGES STATIONS WHEN YOU OPEN THE SUN ROOF, THE CARPET CAME OUT OF THE FLOOR MATS AND THE LIST GOES ON.


Favorite Features

GAS MILEAGE IS GREAT.


Suggested Improvements

BUY SOMETHING OTHER THAN A HONDA IF YOU WANT A RELIABLE VEHICLE.

2002 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great gas mileage (40 mpg highway) and fairly decent drivability are the only good thing about this car. Had nothing but problems. Was in shop 5 times after only 4 months driving. Had to replace front and rear shocks, remove dash and insert foam to eliminate extensive rattling (still rattles). The whole bloody car rattles. Gear shifter pops out of gear, brakes make horrible metallic pop when first used, clutch and brake pedal squeak like rusty door hinges, etc, etc. Serious quality control issues.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Focus on final quality. It makes no sense to make such a good engine and put it into a cheap plastic rattle trap. I had an '86 Honda that had fewer problems when it was 12 years old.
