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


Review

This is a great car. It rides smooth and I haven't had any large repair bills to date. I've had this car 4 years and all I've had to replace is the tires and regular oil changes. I'm very happy with the gas mileage. I have had many compliments on this car from friends to mechanics. This is a great road trip car. I've taken it to a bunch of different States and even out of the Country.


Best Features

I like the Power locks and the cruise control. The radio works fantastic. The interior cleans easily. I always have a smooth ride


Worst Features

None

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


Review

Overall, it's OK. However, after 100k miles, the transmission broke down. Without any warning. I don't know why. Price of parts are too expensive.


Best Features

The engine is reliable.


Worst Features

Too much noise in the cabin.

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


Review

My car is 5 years old. It has 24K miles on it and makes a weird squeaking noise when I drive it slowly. Lately it has not been starting on the first try. I took it to the dealer and they could not determine what the cause was. I am now just waiting for the 2008 Nissans or Camrys to come out. My dealership now wants to charge a $99 diagnostic fee. Whether they find the problem or not. The fact that there seems to be an electrical short that might make me stranded somewhere really bothers me. I'm very disappointed in Honda quality and the dealership.

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


Review

This is a reply to an earlier post. I had the same problem as Scott...Does anyone else have this problem with the 2002, Honda Civic EX, 4dr, 5 speed Man. When driving through puddles the water splashes on the exhaust and has a loud noise, the noise you would hear if a car had no exhaust. As it dries, 30 seconds, it goes away. Honda knows of this issue and calls it a "characteristic of the car". They said not to worry and left it at that.

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


Review

Solid performance but conservative styling sums the car up. I have had virtually no problems with it in almost 5 years of ownership. Mileage has been from 35 to 40 mpg in freeway commuting. Scheduled maintenance has been a big improvement - (much less frequently needed than my previous car). The ride is a bit stiff compared to my wifes Honda CRV.


Best Features

Mileage and reliability.


Worst Features

Some of the styling and ergonomics could be improved.
