2002 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I sold my Accord in 2002 and got the
new Civic. I wanted an economical and
reliable commuting car for less money
than another Accord. The Civic
deliveres on that, but the comfort of
my 1-hr (2x daily) commute has suffered
a great deal. Within 1st 6 mos of
ownership, the annoying sqeaks in the
dash, doors and pillars started to
creep up. Now they are a daily
occurance. I tried everything, but
they keep coming back. Too much road
noise in the cabin makes the already-
weak audio system even less enjoyable.
Seats are not supportive for long
commutes. I would rather own a solid
and comfortable sedan with worse gas
mileage.


Best Features

gas mileage, very reliable (just change oil and gas up), good handling and power for an economy car, smooth engine, leg room in back, storage room in trunk.


Worst Features

too much noise (wind, tires and sqeaks), seat comfort, bad center armrest, cheap plastic on doors, weak audio system.

2002 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We wanted an easy to park, easy to
drive, easy to maintain, clean,
efficient car. The Civic delivered with
flying colors. It handles really well on
curvy roads, too.


Best Features

Gas mileage. Reliability. Rear seat room (seriously!). Handling on curvy roads (my 2 year old always says "faster, faster!"). My 4'10" wife and I (5'8" 210lbs) can both find comfortable seating positions.


Worst Features

Better noise insulation. Better stereo (MP3, better speakers). Wagon version besides the CR-V. Rating to tow a tiny trailer (towing a trailer, no matter how small, can void your warranty). Roof and/or trunk lid rack. The ability to lock the door as you leave the car.

Review

I'm considering a trade in. I am 5'6"
and have to sit on a pillow to see out
the back and then the visability is
less than optimum. The front is so
lowriding that you have to park farther
back from the curb so you don't scrape
the front bumper. Also the front
windshield posts seem to be placed in
such a position that they can block out
vehicles coming from the 2 and 10
o'clock positions. I only have 6600
miles on the car and really think I got
better performance from my 1990 4Dr
Civic.


Best Features

Thank you for redesigning the way water flows from the top. I actually can keep the windows partially open during a rainy time. When the defroster is used, the air conditioner automatically comes one. GOOD ONE!


Worst Features

Higher the front and lower the back so that rear visability would be enhanced. Relocate the front windshield posts, to eliminate the front blind spots.

Review

Within 5 months of buying my Civic I
had to have both front struts replaced.
I love my Civic but I hate the
suspension. I have had my car in the
shop at least 10 times in 2 years for
the suspension! I love the look and the
drive of the car! They could offer more
color choices! It gets great gas
mileage! Other tahn the suspension I
have no problems with the car! Thay are
great little cars!


Best Features

Great gas mileage! Roomy trunk and interior space!


Worst Features

Fix the suspension it would nice without so much road noise!
