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


I purchased this car almost 4 years ago, after heavily researching it. It had 120k miles on it when I got it, now it has 208k. It consistently gets
34mpg city/hwy, and 36 all hwy. Get the 5 spd manual, I hear the auto is gutless. The front seat is ok, but for a 6'3" tall man, i'm basically in the back seat. The engine purrs and has been 100% trouble free. Kinda loud at 75mph, this is basically a tin can on wheels. It's a great commuter car but as far as road trips forget it. I just took a 3k mile road trip and my wife and I were very uncomfortable. I'd buy another one in a second for commuting. Honda cars are the best for reliability and fuel mileage.

Best Features

Fuel mileage(400+ miles) on a full tank. Maintenance is fairly low, this thing just keeps running and running.

Worst Features

Rear end of the car is a little bouncy. I wish there was a 6th gear so the engine wouldn't pull 4,000RPM's at 80mph. Feels like the engine racing on the freeway above 65mph.
