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


Review

After 103,000 miles of trouble-free,
inconvenience-free driving, this car
seems as good as it was when new. I had
some of the same trivial build-quality
shortcomings that others have described
in these early new-generation Civics. I
did have to replace one of the rear
suspension links with an after-market
adjustable link, to get a correct
suspension alignment. (I would rather
do that, than not have independent rear
suspension.) While I covet the detail
improvements of the subsequent Civics,
I do not see enough reason to replace
this car any time soon.


Best Features

Very decent ride, handling and quiet. Great operation and efficiency of the automatic transmission--my first in forty years!


Worst Features

Just what has been added in newer ones: 15" wheels, center console, and better appointments.

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


Review

beautiful car but it rattles more than
my 83 dodge pickup. the body is way to
easy to ding. Dealer fixed most of the
rattles but they keep coming back. test
drove a 04 accord right off the lot it
rattled. only get 32 to 38 MPG at 65 try
80 and it drops to 28. the thing is so
noisy on long drives i leave it home and
take my van. my wife loves this car but
it will be my last honda. not near as
fast as my 93 accord in streight line or
around corners. I wish i had bought a
toyota. at 56k miles it has a great
resale value but it leaves me cold.


Best Features

the body style and the deep blue color


Worst Features

elimintae the rattles and road noise. i replaced the lousy firestones wiht michelins and it still has more road noise then my ranger

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


Review

A great car overall! Would buy again
in a heartbeat! Up to 44 MPG on
highway.


Best Features

Solid exterior look/design. Very comfortable seats on long trips. No hump in floor of back seat. Hard plastic gaurd over trunk rim is perfect for slidding heavy containers in through fold down back seat.


Worst Features

Add a storage armrest upfront. Build dashboard tighter to reduce shimmy sounds. Make air conditioner provide colder air.

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


Review

This car has been trouble free. It is really a
treat to have a car that is so reliable and fun
to drive. I would recommend this car to
anyone that was interested in having an
economical, carefree, and enjoyable car to
drive.


Best Features

I really enjoy driving this car. It has plenty of power. It is very economical. Other than routine maintenance, no other repairs.


Worst Features

The only suggestion I would make to improve this car would be to cut down on the road noise.

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


Review

An all-round good car, fun to drive
with good mileage. Could be more
compfortable on long trips. Road &
wind noise too loud. Scheduled
maintenance is expensive & my Service
dept has been caught padding bills by
doing un-necessary work that's not
part of what's called for in manual.


Best Features

Holds road well, and handles well. Good visibility. Relatively good gas mileage.


Worst Features

Improve sound-proofing. Road and wind sound are too loud. PLEASE improve gas mileage. My transmission went @ 101,000 miles, which should not have happened.
