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


The Civic's an excellent city car- for
short distances and especially for city
driving, the car really is the best out
there. If your driving habits include
long distances, high speeds, or long
commutes, then forget it. The noise
levels above 75mph are ridiculous, the
car is easily deflected at highway
speeds by trucks and crosswinds, and
the seats aren't that comfortable (no
lumbar support). For short hops,
though, none of these problems are
large enough to be noticeable. Spend
some quality time with the car,
however, and you notice those things
plus the fact that the suspension (on
01s at least) is too soft for optimal

Best Features

The gas mileage is great, the control layout is excellent, and for the car's size, there's a pretty good amount of space inside. Plus, my car's been extremely reliable.

Worst Features

There is nowhere near enough storage in this car. There are two map pockets and that's about it. The trunklid needs a release button on the remote control. There needs to be some additional sound insulation, too, not to mention somewhere to put the gas cap.
