Honda Civic = Acura 1.7EL Problems
By Acuradriver on


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


The new generation Civic and Acura
1.7EL (in Canada) are not worth the
extra money you have to pay, for the
car and for the insurance. Side airbag
sensors went out at 15000 km (costed
Honda $750 for replacement and me 3
trips to the dealer). There is no
protective shroud in the front wheel
well; that means the engine bay is
exposed to the salt and dirt from the
wheel well. Various rattles and
noises; car does not feel as solid.
Front shocks went out at 25000 km.
Huge gap in assembly of plastic trim
pieces. Handbrake button cracked at
9000km. Nice design and good packaging
of neat features, but poor assembly and
cheap North American autoparts.

Best Features

Heated mirrors, very useful in Canadian winters.

Worst Features

Send Hondas back to Japan for final assembly and quality checks.
