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


Review

This is a reply to an earlier post. I had the same problem as Scott...Does anyone else have this problem with the 2002, Honda Civic EX, 4dr, 5 speed Man. When driving through puddles the water splashes on the exhaust and has a loud noise, the noise you would hear if a car had no exhaust. As it dries, 30 seconds, it goes away. Honda knows of this issue and calls it a "characteristic of the car". They said not to worry and left it at that.

2002 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased my Civic Si 3 years ago. I have had absolutely no problems with this vehicle. transmission is amazing, clutch feel is great, handling is excellent for a front wheel drive. Understand its a civic, and while it's the performance model of a civic, it's power is only moderate or a bit lacking by todays standards. gas mileage is great and reliability is fantastic.


Best Features

quality, transmission, shifter location, handling seats... overall it's great for a reasonably priced, reasonable performance car.


Worst Features

more power under the hood, just a few years later it is 40 - 80 HP short on it's "competitors", but in all fairness it didn't have a ton of competition until a couple years after it was made.

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


Review

Solid performance but conservative styling sums the car up. I have had virtually no problems with it in almost 5 years of ownership. Mileage has been from 35 to 40 mpg in freeway commuting. Scheduled maintenance has been a big improvement - (much less frequently needed than my previous car). The ride is a bit stiff compared to my wifes Honda CRV.


Best Features

Mileage and reliability.


Worst Features

Some of the styling and ergonomics could be improved.
