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


Review

I've had this car for a year and it has
been everything I hoped it would be.
Sure, I wish it were a little quicker,
but it has many virtues besides its
sporty character. It has wonderful
seats and interior features. The
materials are high quality and it never
has problems. My friend's Nissan Spec-v
has been in the shop 4 times in the same
amount of milage I have on mine. Its
ride is sporty, but not rough at all.
Its agile, but never darty. its quick,
but never too high strung. A jack of
all trades and a hell of a car. (I got
an incredible deal on mine too)


Best Features

Acceleration, Handleing, Engine noise(just right!), interior features, reliablity


Worst Features

MORE POWER...seriously 20 more horsepower would liven this baby up. 16" wheels with more aggresive looking design, lower ride height and for god's sake less role in the corners!

Quick little car when you need too
weave through traffic. Its an excellent
city car very fun to drive. Good fuel

The interior cool stock seats! Where the shifter is located..is unique. The exterior looks plain. (This could be fixed buy purchasing a body kit and a wing)

More horsepower and torque and size 17" rims

2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I really like the car minus all of the
things that have malfunctioned with it.
The fuel sending unit was replaced a
month after purchase. The left front
damper, left front stabilizer link and
the right front strut assembly have
been replaced. The AC compressor went
out about 34 thousand miles, the
alternator went out at around 41
thousand miles.


Best Features

It gets up to speed fairly quickly and takes turns pretty well (until a suspension failure lands you into a wall).

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


Review

Great gas mileage (40 mpg highway) and
fairly decent drivability are the only
good thing about this car. Had nothing
but problems. Was in shop 5 times after
only 4 months driving. Had to replace
front and rear shocks, remove dash and
insert foam to eliminate extensive
rattling (still rattles). The whole
bloody car rattles. Gear shifter pops
out of gear, brakes make horrible
metallic pop when first used, clutch and
brake pedal squeak like rusty door
hinges, etc, etc. Serious quality
control issues.


Best Features

Great gas mileage.


Worst Features

Focus on final quality. It makes no sense to make such a good engine and put it into a cheap plastic rattle trap. I had an '86 Honda that had fewer problems when it was 12 years old.

2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great little car. Gets great
gas mileage and and keep up in
traffic. And Civics have a reputaion
of being very reliable. I do wish that
it had a little more power and handled
a little better in the turns but this
car is not a sports car. I just
sometimes wish it were. I would have
gotten an RSX if i could afford it at
the time because I want a little more
performance out of my daily commute


Best Features

Sunroof and the large trunk. Lots of room for all my stuff.


Worst Features

A litte more power and a not so soft suspension.
