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


A rattle in the door was a bolt
left in. Coolant drops below the
min. mark when hot after 500 to
1000 miles (possible leak in the
dash since we smell it) & their
solution was to "overfill" it so I don't
run out so quickly.

It has failed to start several times for
no reason. For 2 years they promise
to set up a meeting with the factory
rep. Other problems are missing
welds, seat belts, body damages
easily, the windows fog unless the A/
C, outside air and heat on,... and

Honda has been tough to work with.
Maybe I am upset
since I had a 2001 HX that needed 2
transmissions in a year! I am selling
the LX and buying something else.

Best Features

Good interior room, reasonable gas mileage, holder for the gas cap (the one they forgot to install on the HX!)

Worst Features

Go back building them the way Honda use too and don't rely on your reputation to sell cars. Be more honest and open about problems with your cars.
