Wouldn't buy again

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).

CAN I HAVE MY MONEY BACK

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

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.

Qualtiy concerns

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.

Review

Well, I posted a review back in May of 2002. To update, the car STILL has not had any problems. Yes, the road noise is still there, and the rattles and creaks are there. But reliabilty and gas milleage has been very good. On all highway, I have gotten anywhere from 39- 41MPG. But back in the city, it's been hovering around 33MPG. Over this time, I have gone on numerous trips, and drive everywhere and I still enjoy driving it!

Review

The front struts on this car went out with in 5000 miles. Dealer advise-- "you will be paying for them soon enough your self" A/C system not adequate on a hot day. FM/AM have different sound levels. Oil filter hard to get to. AT transmission down shifts too fast when cruse control is on. Sun roof rattles. Paint job is flakey and weak. Sheet metal dents if you look at it sideways.

2002 Honda Civic Sedan 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.

honda civic '02

2002 Honda Civic Sedan 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.

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.
