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


Review

Never been back to the dealer. Had no reason to do so.


Favorite Features

It's a peppy, fun car to drive and is ideal for one who is looking for economical and dependable transportation. If you are looking for excitement, look elsewhere. Sharp looking and easy to care for.


Suggested Improvements

Could use more flexibility in moving the front driver's seat such as up/down and forward/backward. I have to look every time I go from reverse to drive as the stop gate is past the overdrive cutout, unlike the Toyota we have. Average mpg of 33 is somewhat disappointing.

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


Review

The 2002 Ex replaces my 96 Accord LX which I racked up 120,000 miles on in 5 years. It is just a comfortable with better fuel milage. The engine revs high, but for the price it can not be beat. I am very happy with it. It is by far the best bang for the buck out there! You can get more, but you must pay a lot more.


Favorite Features

Fuel Milage.


Suggested Improvements

Quiet the engine noise on high revs.

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


Review

This is my first car. Hands down, no contest, this is the best economy car you can get out there. It saves you money with the great gas mileage and maintenance costs. Plus there's the great resale value. The build quality is great. I have the blue ex couple and am very happy with my purchase. Have had the car exactly a year now. Just lacks that all out power, but it does have enough though.

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


Review

So far the car has been without major problems. however, the minor ones are cumulative and annoying. First the driver side window got stuck. Replaced under warranty but now the panel control on the driver side comes loose when the driver's door gets closed with windows open. The sunroof rattles as well as the glove box. Stock tires are donuts!!!


Favorite Features

Lots of aftermarket.

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


Review

This is my second Honda Civic. My first one was an '88 hatchback. The quality is outstanding. The shifter is smooth, no rattles or noises are noted. The engine is peppy (127 hp in EX)and the gas milage is amazing. It's fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Love the moonroof, the CD and the 5 speed.


Suggested Improvements

no improvements needed. If you want improvements, go buy a $40,000 car.

Favorite Features
