Beware Civic Transmission Problems
By Concerned on


1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


I bought this car used with 66k miles
and was the 3rd owner. Make sure to
have your tran. checked before buying
a Civic. After 13k miles and 7 months,
having trans. problems (struggles on
hills, doesn't accelerate, jerks into
gear). Have had only minor
repairs/maintenance. Driving pattern
includes a lot of highway, back roads,
and stop and go traffic. Only
complaints is the ride, you feel
everything and it rides like a truck
when not on the highway. Overall good
car but may purchase new car with A
LOT more power.

Best Features

Ergonomics, gas mileage, keyless entry, sunroof, front dash and controls

Worst Features

Better quality transmission, will take car to non-dealer transmission specialist. Have seen the people who work in the service dept of dealer and would rather take problems to a professional. Not sure if normal wear, but had to have all brakes/shoes and 2 front rotors replaced after 14k miles.
