Summary:

I couldn't have bought a better new car for the money

Faults:

Absolutely none!

General Comments:

Considering this car gets 40mpg on the highway, I just had to give performance a nine, since it has enough power to go up any hill at speed, and has the ability to cruise at 85mph easily.

I gave comfort not higher than seven because of road noise, but I think the tires are partially to blame for this. Otherwise, everything else sounds and feels just right.

Summary:

All around good car that can be easily modified to whatever to like

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong yet.

General Comments:

This is a great, cheap car.

It gets great gas mileage. 30 mpg.

The 4 cylinder engine is a little slow, but add about $1000-1500 to the engine and it will fly.

Parts, both performance and stock, are plentiful and affordable. Many options for performance parts and civics are very customizable.

There is not a lot of room in the backseat with the 2 door coupe, but how often do you sit in the backseat of your own car?

Very light car helps with speed and acceleration, but makes it easier to fly off the road in rain or snow.

The 2000 has great Macpherson double wishbone suspension which they replaced in the 2001/2002 for more backseat legroom.

The engine always makes a pinging noise.

This car is very unreliable.

The engine is always making pinging noises.

Basically, the car is a serious lemon.

2000 Honda Civic VTi 1.6 from UK and Ireland

8.8 / 10

Previous carHonda Accord

Summary:

A fantastic mix of performance, practicality and price

Faults:

There have been a number of rattles and squeaks from the interior fittings, all of which have been fixed at service time.

One of the bolts holding the driver's seat to the floor came out while I was driving.

Other than that, it has not missed a beat.

General Comments:

The performance is enough to keep up with 2.5 Litre V6 Vectras & Mondeos, not bad for a 1.6.

The ride is a touch harsh and it's surprisingly noisy above 60mph.

The standard fitment Dunlop tyres are fine in the dry, but seriously lack grip in the wet, they also add substantially to the noisy ride.

I got the car, Ex. demo, with Air Conditioning and a 12 Disk CD changer, for £12000, an absolute steal.
