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


Review

My car is 5 years old. It has 24K miles on it and makes a weird squeaking noise when I drive it slowly. Lately it has not been starting on the first try. I took it to the dealer and they could not determine what the cause was. I am now just waiting for the 2008 Nissans or Camrys to come out. My dealership now wants to charge a $99 diagnostic fee. Whether they find the problem or not. The fact that there seems to be an electrical short that might make me stranded somewhere really bothers me. I'm very disappointed in Honda quality and the dealership.

2002 Honda Civic Sedan 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 Sedan 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.

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


Review

My 2002 honda civic has endured my harsh driving with very few repairs. I drive over 35,000 miles per year and usually try to get places as quickly as possible. I have only performed routine maintenance on my car with the exception of wheel bearings on the front. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone!


Best Features

This car handles well in curves and get excellent gas milage.


Worst Features

Needs wider front seats.

Dash is easy to use,as well as everything else.


Worst Features

Make the car a tad bigger.
