2000 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Just a warning to new car buyers about the "quality" of a Honda. Flaws in
workmanship and an uncharacteristic brush off by American Honda
Customer service have left me with no recourse but to go to small claims
court with Honda.
Im still in shock at the response from Honda when told that water leaks
caused by a lack of "caulk-like" adhesive around the fender welds would not
be covered under warranty.
If your car leaks water, check the fender welds first ???? Dont waste your
time on windshield replacements. That is not what Honda deems logical.
Above all, pay the dealer to do " a few oil changes" to establish the required
GOODWILL necessary for them to honor the warrenty.

Best Features

Best feature: High Resale price for a better auto.

Worst Features

Follow up with American Honda on the quality surveys. Even if they sometimes forget to actually include one in the letter asking for your opinion.
