Overall, the Civic Coupe LX is a solid
buy. I am dissapointed, however, with
the build quality. While my Civic has
been solid since I purchased it in
May '02, noises, particularly a loud
clicking, have developed. I have been
to the dealer three times, and they
have not been able to fix the problem.
The Civic should definitely be on your
shopping list, just don't automatically
rely on the Honda brand.
The Civic is overall a sophisticated
compact car, with the exception of the
Honda should really pay attention to
build quality - while the basic
mechanicals appear to be solid, Honda
also used to be known for bullet proof
build quality. I am afraid that is no
longer the case.
