2001 Honda Civic EX from North America
It's a great little car!
I replaced my original tires about a year ago. About three-four months ago it began to vibrate when it reached the speed of 53-58 mph. The tire place rotated the tires and balanced them so that I don't feel the vibration. However, after my recent 40,000 mileage checkup the dealership found a leaking strut. I guess I'll be replacing both front struts soon.
The paint of the car is cracking. It went out of warranty a month before I realized how bad the paint was. The dealership charged me for repainting some areas of the car. Now I am noticing cracking and chipping again. This was just fixed just barely six months ago. :-(
I really have enjoyed my Civic. It's a little small when you have kids. But with the ever rising prices of gas, it has been awesome with low gas consumption. The vibrating problem that I am currently having, I look at it as cost of maintaining it. Just as you change the oil, there are things that just wear out and must be replaced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
