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


A rattle in the door was a bolt left in. Coolant drops below the min. mark when hot after 500 to 1000 miles (possible leak in the dash since we smell it) & their solution was to "overfill" it so I don't run out so quickly. It has failed to start several times for no reason. For 2 years they promise to set up a meeting with the factory rep. Other problems are missing welds, seat belts, body damages easily, the windows fog unless the A/ C, outside air and heat on,... and more. Honda has been tough to work with. Maybe I am upset since I had a 2001 HX that needed 2 transmissions in a year! I am selling the LX and buying something else.

Best Features

Good interior room, reasonable gas mileage, holder for the gas cap (the one they forgot to install on the HX!)

Worst Features

Go back building them the way Honda use too and don't rely on your reputation to sell cars. Be more honest and open about problems with your cars.
