Decent car but safety hazard without ABS

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


This is an OK car but feels a little tin canny and like a go-cart (not in a good way). My major complaint is braking on wet pavement or lack thereof. This car will go into a slide every time. And this is with brand new tires. ABS is a must. No way I'm letting my kids use this car unless I know it'll be dry outside. It even spins out when accelerating lightly on wet roads. You really have to baby it. If it has to climb while doing so forget about it. Another complaint is that the headliner fell apart at about 100k.

Best Features

Nice looking car. Not much maintenance required so far although the timing belt replacement was not inexpensive at about $500. But you can't skip it because of the interference head.

Worst Features

ABS is mandatory on such a light car. I'd replace the car if I could afford to.
