Beware of Transmission Problems
By JasonM on


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


Transmission had to be replaced at 63,000 miles. Do your research online and you'll see that the 2001 Civic (and the V6 Accord) have the transmissions go bad frequently well under 100,000 miles. Additionally the SRS light may go off due to faulty seatbelts (mine did). Lastly, as is often the case for Honda, the brakes need to be replaced a bit more frequently than other car manufacturers. This is all coming from a die-hard Honda fan with multiple Civics. Go ahead and get a Honda, just don't get a 2001 Civic (2002 wasn't much better).

Best Features

Gas economy.

Worst Features

Should have put a tranny cooler in this thing. It's also not much fun to drive.
