2001 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Replaced a '97 Civic LX for this lease return. Styling, space, interior conveniences and power/tranny combo seem better than the '97. Suspension not as responsive & sone additional road noise than the '97. Overall a fantastic West Coast Canadian commuter. Very pleased. PS Still own a '90 Accord EXR for longer road trips.


Best Features

Styling, seating comfort, fuel economy, interior layout and overall driveability are exemplary for a compact.


Worst Features

ABS brakes for wet pavement.

2001 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car because I wanted a reliable ride and that is exactly what I got. It does have rattles as other reviews point out and that's annoying, but that is about it. It rides nicely and I get 38 highway and about 29 to 30 in the city. Not too bad. The ride is extremely smooth. My next car will most likely be another Honda.


Best Features

Love the control layout. Very easy to reach the controls that I used most often.


Worst Features

Engine noise can be loud when merging onto a highway and it needs the rattles fixed.

2001 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my family's 5th Honda (4
Civics) and we are not disappointed.
We knew what we were getting. Of
course we could have saved $3K-$4K
buying a Sunfire\Cavailier or Hyundai
but the resale, reliability and quality
is not even close to the Civic. Not a
problem from day one. For road trips,
this may not be the ideal car but it'll
be good on gas. On the performance
side the 1.7 4 banger is lacking a bit
in power and performance compared to
competition (Mazda3, etc.). Just
imagine the Civic with the Accord or
CRV 4 cyclinder engine.....are you
listening Honda?


Best Features

Good gas mileage, reliability and quality


Worst Features

More interior space, give the Civic the Accord and CRV 4 banger

Review

I love Hondas. I've owned many cars
over the years and nothing I've had
compares. I got this after my '87
Accord LXi finally died. This one is
the right mix of sportiness and
practicality for me. I've never been a
4-door guy before, but with two small
kids now, it makes sense. Installing
their car seats and getting them in
and out is a breeze. A five star crash
rating, ABS, and good handling are all
pactical plusses. The roominess for
its class is outstanding. I'm 6'3" and
am quite cofortable behind the wheel.
The VTEC gives me almost as much power
as I'd like and the acceleration is
enough for me to pass with confidence.


Best Features

roominess, exterior styling (very streamlined, mine has a great window tint job, titanium is a beutiful color), trunk large enough for a sub box with two 10"s and room to spare for other things, moonroof, smooth shifting automatic, visibility...best car in class...period


Worst Features

EX model should have come with alloy wheels as opposed to cheap plastic wheel covers...a few more horses would have been nice...fuel economy good but could be better.

Review

The high gas mileage (35-40 mostly
highway) is the main reason I bought
this Civic LX, also because of safety
crash tests. This year's ridiculously
high gas prices make me laugh at
Expeditions and other big SUVs.
Reliability has been perfect,
replacing only a few filters, at 99000
miles. I still have original brake
pads! I'll need a new timing belt soon.


Best Features

This car's automatic transmission is much better than my 87 Accord's


Worst Features

Acceleration could be a little bit better. Better fuel gauge sensor. Much better sounding car stereos and speakers, please.
