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


Review

This Civic is my fourth Honda. I've
driven them since I was 16 years old. I
feel that the build quality has slipped
a little, my Civic seems to rattle
quite a bit over rough surfaces and I
only have 33k on it. That is my only
complaint about it. It's fun to drive,
has good pep for 127HP, a smooth
shifting 5-speed, and I like the way it
looks. It also gets great gas mileage,
and I drive it hard.(34+ MPG) Overall,
you won't be disappointed. I work for
it's biggest competitor and continue to
buy Honda products. GO HONDA!!


Best Features

Reliability, VTEC engine, styling, gas mileage, fun to drive.(With a 5-speed)


Worst Features

NO RATTLES!! (I had only driven Accords prior to this, and all were rattle free.) More power is always good as well. Otherwise, good job Honda, keep up the good work!

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


Review

Fun to drive. Terrible on uphill
freeway entrance. If you drive fast
watch the tranny fluid level it burns
up FAST!! thats $3500 i wish i didnt
have to spend Honda said "Its not a
Race Car" when they replaced the
tranny!! Got squished between 2 cars
on the freeway and now the tailpipe
drags on big bumps. Watch that front
bummper you'll lose it in a big DIP.
Shes been broken into TWICE !


Best Features

Getting "My Munchkin" back from honda with a Big $BILL$


Worst Features

Make it harder to break into. Uneven Brake pad Wear

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


Review

The car is great. It looks good, there
are several aftermarket products to
choose from, and its economical. I've
installed an aftermarket stereo, wheels
(17"), tires, and the best damn alarm
system you can buy. Thieves love this
car. My car has been broken into twice
since I purchased. (AIG insurance is
the best!!). GET AN ALARM!


Best Features

Good looks, good trunk space, nice instrament panel.


Worst Features

Every Honda need a super duper alarm system. Could use more power or offer optional supercharger/turbo.

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


Review

Just because you drive an economy car
doesn't mean you have to settle for a
sub par vehicle. Civic gives me a good
fun ride with better handling than any
economy car I have ever drove. Hint -
get the 5 speed manual transmission,
provides a lot more get up than the
automatic.


Best Features

Gas milage always over 36 mpg, has been as high as 41 mpg.


Worst Features

Vehicle should have a better factory sound system.

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


Review

I bought a Honda Civic in late 2002
after reading good reviews in
Edmunds.com. I was totally shocked to
find out only months later that
the "new" car came with serious
problems.

1. Unlike my Accord, the plastic in
the a/c vent of the Civic "sweats" and
results in the rear windshield fogging.

2. The "break shift" produces loud
sounds often when one breaks.

Apparently these are problems that
Honda is aware of and working on.
However, a consumer like myself feels
shortchanged!


Worst Features

Brake and A/C design
