2001 Honda Civic LX from North America
Not your Father's Honda
A/C has been recharged 2 summers in a row, waiting on number 3. A leak that can't be found!
Steering has been really loose about the last 5000 miles.
Notice the same problem as another user, after going through a puddle there is a noise from the right side near the engine. Feels like a brake problem, but doesn't fit the mold. I think it might be a problem with the Front Wheel Drive.
Fit and Finish is fair to poor.
Overall, I like this car. Good mileage, not bad on room, etc. But, compared to the 1988 Accord I drove before... that's a different question.
The 88 Accord still drove well after 100,000 miles. Heck, even the A/C still worked! The interior was starting to show it's age in 2001, the transmission needed to be replaced, but it was worth it for this car.
The 2001 Civic is not typical of Honda. Hopefully the 2004 Accords are not as bad. If they are, I'm looking for a new car brand.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
