2002 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
We bought our Honda as a 2002 closeout and have never looked back. While the car has picked up a few dings and scratches here and there over the last 8 years, it has not failed to perform. We put 1500 miles on it over 6 days this past summer while running the A/C and got 36 mpg (all before the 110K checkup). Great gas and oil car. Only issues we've had were replacing the front struts and replaced the V-Tech valve. Only complaint is the front disk pads wear all too quickly (40K miles), but other than that, it's a great car.
Good pickup, great economy, good looks, good ergonomics.
Brake pads --- need longer life. Struts/shocks still sound clunky even fixed going over certain bumps.
