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


Same old, same old reliable Honda. Overall, I would have to rate this new Civic as excellent, as all Honda products tend to be. Maybe a bit bland in some areas, but fun to drive and very rliable. Some cost-cutting is evendent in the newer models however...but just go down to a GM dealership and sit in one of their POS's (any...Chevy to Cadillac) and you'll think you just went to heaven.

Best Features

Peppy engine, great gas mileage, quieter than my previous Hondas (91 Civic, 95 Accord), Honda makes the best FWD stick, period.

Worst Features

These are nits: Too much hard plastic in interior, driver's arm rest is too short, break-away exterior rearview mirrors would be nice, power steering is over-boosted, OEM Firestone tire are lousy in the wet, a few very un-Honda like rattles in the dash area.
