2001 Honda Civic ex from North America
I completely regret the purchase of this Honda
Passenger side window molding came off.
Driver side power window switch went out 2 times.
Power stearing pump had to be replaced at 10,000 miles.
Constant problems with suspension and stearing vibrations.
Manual Shifter came loose had to be fixed.
The performance of the v-tec engine is wonderful and besides the appearance it is the only thing I like about this car.
I am continually trying to find out why there is a vibration and why the car handles so rough when it hits the slightest bump. I have had the tires balanced twice the alignment checked twice and the tires replaced at 10,000 miles with no results.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Seems to me that all the people that have the V-TEC motors are the ones having all the problems.. I have the 1.7 117 HP jobbie in mine, and I've had nothing go wrong with it. Cheers..

My 2001 EX- I've had a smell when a/c comes on ever since I bought it-like dirty socks, but the dealership said they could never smell it-even though everyone else can-also more concerning is at 61k miles I'm noticing everyday that the car has trouble when shifting gears-it's an automatic. It revs high then finally catches and switches gears--again I brought it to the dealer and they said they couldn't get it to react that way with them. I'm frustrated they are able to just say its not happening and there is nothing you can do.
