2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car is great. It looks good, there are several aftermarket products to choose from, and its economical. I've installed an aftermarket stereo, wheels (17"), tires, and the best damn alarm system you can buy. Thieves love this car. My car has been broken into twice since I purchased. (AIG insurance is the best!!). GET AN ALARM!


Best Features

Good looks, good trunk space, nice instrament panel.


Worst Features

Every Honda need a super duper alarm system. Could use more power or offer optional supercharger/turbo.

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


Review

Just because you drive an economy car doesn't mean you have to settle for a sub par vehicle. Civic gives me a good fun ride with better handling than any economy car I have ever drove. Hint - get the 5 speed manual transmission, provides a lot more get up than the automatic.


Best Features

Gas milage always over 36 mpg, has been as high as 41 mpg.


Worst Features

Vehicle should have a better factory sound system.

2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought a Honda Civic in late 2002 after reading good reviews in Edmunds.com. I was totally shocked to find out only months later that the "new" car came with serious problems. 1. Unlike my Accord, the plastic in the a/c vent of the Civic "sweats" and results in the rear windshield fogging. 2. The "break shift" produces loud sounds often when one breaks. Apparently these are problems that Honda is aware of and working on. However, a consumer like myself feels shortchanged!


Worst Features

Brake and A/C design

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


Review

This baby gets some killer gas mileage and it lets you have a great time while its getting it. The sport seats are extremely comfy, although they may be too narrow for you big guys and gals. The shifter throws are short and precise and clutch can be engaged with hardly any effort. Torque is so so (it is a four banger) but it is still enough to merge and pass quickly on the highway. Steering is tight and gives decent feedback.


Best Features

Those seats are FANTASTIC! They look awesome and hold you firm. The shifter placement was a good idea and is a terrific conversation piece. The interior kicks so much ass it is unbelievable.


Worst Features

The exterior could definately use a little more flava. This is certainly a plain looking vehicle. The wheels...come on! Fifteens?!? That is absolutely ridiculous, is this not suppose to be a performance machine?

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


Review

Faulty cab light was replaced by the dealer. Vinyl molding by the drivers side gets loose and have to be pushed in place. Defrot only with the AC on is very irritating. Sometimes fails to start for no apparent reason. Brakes jerk when applied hard. Apart from that, fun car to drive. Paid a high price. I have owned both domestic and imports, Ford to VW to Toyota. I believe this is the best.


Best Features

Quick acceleration, small turning radius, sporty look


Worst Features

Delink defrost from AC, improve transmission and brakes
