Not what I expect from a Honda

Vehicle2001 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI owned a 1992 Accord EX sedan and
loved it so when I was looking for a
new car, I figured I couldn't go wrong
with another one. This civic has been
horrible. There is a real problem with
the front end. Almost every 6 months, I
need new struts oup front, I've had the
control arm replaced and the control
arm bushings replaced. Honda has upped
the warranty on the struts to
200,000km. I guess they recognize there
is a front end problem with the 2001's
but instead of fixing it, they are
prepared to throw free parts at it for
the time being. Free parts are nice but
it's a real headache to take a new car
in for surgery every 6 months.
Best FeaturesGas mileage is excellent and power is good for a small car. The 5 speed transmission is really good. The interior is comfortable.
Worst FeaturesMuch needed re-design of the front end. Honda knows how to make a solid little car, why didn't they do it this time?
