Having owned a 1999 Honda Civic, I'm
frustated by two things that are
extreme pit-peeves of my new 2002
Civic. One, the material SUCKS! It acts
like a lint brush, and just as hard to
clean. Change the material honda.
Second, get rid of the 140MPH
Speedodometer!!! That kind of sports-
oriented guage belongs in a real sports
car e.g. SIs. My daughter is trying to
learn to drive, and it's difficult for
her to tell where the 5mph increments
are. Lastly, the new 2002 Civic's
suspension is too harsh. My teeth
chatter everytime I hit a small bump in
It's a honda.
1) Interior material acts like a lint
brush - extremely difficult to clean
2) Speedodometer needs to be backed
down to 100mph with 5mph increment -
except for the Sports Model.
3) Suspension is too harsh. The pre-
2001 models were smoother riding, and
had equally good handling.
