2005 Honda Civic EX Special Edition 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I use to love driving my civic. It handled well and is suppose to be a safe car. The first four years I had the car I was very happy with it. Just over 100k miles while driving my daughter and my two young grandchildren from Fl to Pa it overheated on Interstate 95 at night. that was three years ago. Since, I haven't been able to travel farther than 50 miles from home. We have had the car to many shops and they can't find the problem. You name it we replaced it. Still overheating! If you go to hondatech.com you will find this is a common problem with Honda. So next we will have the head gasket repair which may run as high as $1,500. I'm not happy with Honda and would never buy another.
Suggested Improvements
Honda should pay for the blown heads since it's such a common problem. They did something wrong with this engine that causes this problem. I'll stick with Ford.
