Watch Out For That Tranny
By Adam on

Vehicle

2003 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Review

We take good care of our car. We put low miles on it every year. At 65,000 miles the transmission should not fail. To make it worse, Honda has no interest in making it right. Be very cautious when buying this car. There may not be many complaints about the '03 transmission now, but they're about to come of age. Do a search for '01 transmission problems and start saving for the impending rainy day. Don't say you weren't warned.

Favorite Features

Love the moonroof. Great sound system.

Suggested Improvements

Make a reliable transmission.

At 65,000 miles, it is true that the transmission should not fail, but a lot of the times, it is the driver's fault, not the cars. You don't have to drive the car a lot, just improperly. A lot of people do not even realize they are driving their cars wrong, or even know or understand what they really should about driving and the rules of the road and driving properly.
