Great Car But Has Transmission Issues
By tinkbot on

Vehicle

2003 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have a 2003 Civic and currently have 83,000 miles on it. I do all maintenance and oil changes as recommended in the owners manual. About 6 months ago I noticed the automatic transmission was having problems shifting from 1st to 2nd gear and from 3rd to 4th. Transmission is now having major issues accelerating and going over 60 mph. My mechanic says the transmission is slowly dying and has to be replaced. Cost will be around $3,000. WHAT!?! This car is only 6 years old. A transmission shouldn't have to be replaced before 150,000+ miles and especially not on a Honda. Honda what's happened to you? Buyer beware!

Best Features

Great gas mileage, purple dash lights, moonroof.

Worst Features

Honda needs to stand behind the multiple transmission complaints on the 2001 and 2003 models and issue a recall/replacement. Address and fix the problems Honda or my next car will be a Toyota.
