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


Review

It’s a good car, but more like Ford
than Honda. Picked it over
Elantra for reliability and crash test
data, Elantra more comfy & powerful,
better stereo, & $3-4K less.
Handling sucks (drive a new Corolla).
Window regulators shouldn’t break from
normal use. Paint chipped after 100
miles! Only gets 25MPG! Headlights dim
when driving. Trunk dumps water inside
when opened (from lights on trunk).
Gas & brake petals too close, knee
hits steering wheel. Right foot needs
more room (have big feet, bigger
shoes). Headrest makes better door
than window, blocks rear view. Sun
visor clip too tight. Driver door
creaks. Ridiculous oil change
procedure.


Best Features

Looks Great inside & out. Comfy seats. Like the chrome door handles & silver guages. AC works well. Flat rear floor is great for backseat passengers' feet. Good quality materials. Controls work very well.


Worst Features

Assemble it right the first time. Doors should automatically unlock when pull on door handle. Allow power window operation in the ACC key position. The sunvisor clip is too tight. Needs more power! Hesitates from stop. I don't want to buy a car lift to change the damn oil!

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


Review

I love this car, no complaints at all.
This car is great. But my only concern
is the exterior design,'02 is not
really bad at all, but would rather
prefer '00(s) exterior design. I also
have a '00 EX coupe and I love the
exterior. Would recommend it to every
body who likes value and reliability.


Best Features

everything


Worst Features

Nothing that I can think of. Except for the exterior design, I wish they could bring back the old ones like the '00 but it is impossible :)

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


Review

I fell inlove with this car.
Everything is working great.
Reliable ,love the overall quality.
Eye catching,I will never drive any
other car except honda(s). I have a
5sp honda and I'm really having fun
driving it(smooth shifting), ABS works
excellent. I like the exterior and
interior design of this car(very
roomy), but I prefer '99 and '00 when
it comes to exterior.


Best Features

everything


Worst Features

more horsepower and ABS to all hondas, not just the EX

2002 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car hanles very well, shifts
incredibly smoothly, has just enough
power to make it fun to drive. You
rarely see SIs on the road, so people
are always checking it out. I wanted
the reliability of a Honda (my last
Honda had 150,000 miles on it and still
ran like new when I sold it), the
versatility of a hatchback (its like a
little station wagon when you put the
back seats down), and decent
performance, so this car was the
logical choice.

The performance and fuel economy have
improved over the first 1l,000 miles,
but the 26 mpg I'm averaging is lower
than I had expected.


Best Features

smooth engine and transmission, unique style, refined, ultramodern interior, and rally shifter


Worst Features

Dash creaks in cold weather. Needs a center arm rest. The wheels are too small (at least they look too small), but Honda knows that most buyers will replace them anyway.
