Such a good car but still needs refining
By vw_ev on


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


This is a great (economy) car! The gas
mileage is an obvious plus, engine
power is adequate, brakes are
excellent, steering is tight and the
handling is nimble. What things needs
improvement? Interior fit and finish is
marginal is some areas (instrument
cluster looks cheap, and some plastics
dont fit very tightly). Secondly, the
automatic transmission (should have
gotten a manual...) is horrible! Its
shifts are way too slow for this type
of car. It resembles that of an old
grandpas car than a sporty economy car.
Overall however I am very satisfied
with my purchase!
