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


I was currently driving a 1999 Civiv EX
and loved it. I figured I could trade
up. Boy did I make a mistake!

I had tranny problems at first. It
would not shift out of third gear
(auto). It somehow worked itself out.
The suspension is not great. I took it
in and they replaced the rear bushings
under warrantee. It seems to have
fixed the problem.

The seats are uncomfortable and it
needs an arm rest like the 03 has.

The gas milage, as with most Hondas,
never quite lives up to the sticker. I
get 26 avarage and don't have a lead
foot. When new, the tank had no seal
and leaked when topping off tank.

Best Features

I like the body-style of the car.

Worst Features

Fix the suspension, gas milage, and seat comfort. I did purchase an 03 Civic and am very pleased with it. They added a arm rest, better suspension and mileage is a few points higher. It is much more comfortable.
