Disappointed 15yr Honda owner

2001 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car in March 2003. I am
the only owner of it. I have had 3
recalls and 1 MAJOR TSB (the CVT needed
replacing and no one told me--i found
out on my own, luckily in time!). Car
drives like all Hondas i've owned (3).
Very spry and quick for its 117HP. Lousy
reliability this time around, a few
service issues (eg. cruise light broken
and badly repaired), the air condition
button keeps falling off (?!), and the
in-dash CD-changer gets stuck
constantly. Bad Honda! I'm buying a
Mazda soon.

Best Features

Spry driving experience, quick off the line (even for an automatic), brakes are the best Honda brakes EVER, excellent gas mileage (always over 30MPG, twice over 40).

Worst Features

Ergonomics terrible (radio controls too far away, while climate control is closer--which gets used more?), no power windows or sunroof can be bought with this trim, very cheap speakers originally (upgraded).
