2001 Honda Civic LX 4 door sedan 1.7L from North America
An expensive lemon!
Automatic Transmission stalls when coming to stop, replaced air flow thingy sensor, still stalls.
Automatic transmission skips when decelerating then accelerating, dealer says is common.
Automatic transmission has loud clicking sound when going through gears.
Front springs break over every pothole.
Knocking sounds from front suspension.
Rear suspension squeaks.
Brakes needed replacement at 27000 miles
(I am not an aggressive driver)
Tires needed replacement at 27000 miles
(I take the curves nice and slow)
Fuel gauge erratic.
Car is hard to start sometimes.
When going through puddles loud vibrating sound from right front engine area, and reduced power. Going to dealer tomorrow.
Idle has had to been reset numerous times, still idles to low then stalls, dealer does not see problem because "they cannot re-create it"
Both front shocks have been replaced due to default.
Bagel left in-between my coolant system hoses after servicing, thanks guys nice and toasty.
Reduced power, car now half as powerful than when first purchased.
Eats through gas like I own a Lincoln Navigator, dealer did a tune up, cost me 500 bucks (US).
Potholes become back-jarring experiences.
Overall handling of car is very poor.
Interior noise is like being in a rocket during liftoff.
Don't try and haul friends anywhere, no power to get up hills, or get onto highways.
Glass windows rattle over smoth road.
About ten pieces of the dashboard rattle, driving me crazy.
Radio volume control erratic, to loud or to soft, no medium.
I need an armrest.
Seats are not supportive enough for long drives.
Big dent from my hood being warped, very cheaply made.
Car covered with sap when received from dealer, dealer blamed it on me.
Scratch on inside of windshield during first 600 miles, dealer again blamed it on me. (I believe whoever prepped my car had a diamond ring that did the damage)
Cabin material is very cheap.
For the price of the car I expect a lot more.
I could care less for my car, if I had the money to buy another I would. It seemed everyone was happy with their Honda, so I bought one. Man am I disapointed. This car is an absolute lemon, it does not desrve to be called a Honda. I will never buy another Honda, this car has been back to the dealer almost every month I have owned the car. What a disapointment!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Steven, what are you the general manager down at GM? I read about 30 reviews on this car and all are mostly positive with no major defects or engine problems. Sounds like you bought the car from hell my friend! Any who good luck trying to sell you crap box if it is in fact as bad as you say it is. Good funny comments though I must say. Rock n' roll man!
