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


It’s a good car, but more like Ford
than Honda. Picked it over
Elantra for reliability and crash test
data, Elantra more comfy & powerful,
better stereo, & $3-4K less.
Handling sucks (drive a new Corolla).
Window regulators shouldn’t break from
normal use. Paint chipped after 100
miles! Only gets 25MPG! Headlights dim
when driving. Trunk dumps water inside
when opened (from lights on trunk).
Gas & brake petals too close, knee
hits steering wheel. Right foot needs
more room (have big feet, bigger
shoes). Headrest makes better door
than window, blocks rear view. Sun
visor clip too tight. Driver door
creaks. Ridiculous oil change

Best Features

Looks Great inside & out. Comfy seats. Like the chrome door handles & silver guages. AC works well. Flat rear floor is great for backseat passengers' feet. Good quality materials. Controls work very well.

Worst Features

Assemble it right the first time. Doors should automatically unlock when pull on door handle. Allow power window operation in the ACC key position. The sunvisor clip is too tight. Needs more power! Hesitates from stop. I don't want to buy a car lift to change the damn oil!
