2001 Honda Civic LX 1.7 Liter SOHC 16v 4 cylinder from North America
Overall, a good economical car
Our trunk has water leaks on both sides of the car.
The car overall has been mechanically good.
The first thing I was disappointed about was air noise coming from around the passenger doors above 50 MPH.
The car performs great and I love scooting around town in it.
Our only problem is the leak in the trunk. We have narrowed it down to underneath the fender-wells on both sides when driven in the rain. I hate having the inconvenience of taking it to the shop even though we have the warranty. That's the reason we bought a Honda, so we wouldn't be in the shop.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The leak into your trunk is coming from a missing gasket around the gas filler neck. I had this same problem with my car and the dealership discovered that the gasket that goes between the filler neck and the fender was left out at the factory.

I too own a 2001 Civic LX. I have several problems with it even though it is still in the 30k range. I noticed that the gas meter does not read my gas accurately. It will say I have half a tank and before I know it the gas light is on, or it will say I have a quarter of a tank and the next time I am in my car it will say three-quarters. Basically it is completely unreliable. Further, I only get about 20 mpg and that is mostly highway. Secondly, I am not a heavy girl and my seat is falling apart, that plastic thing on the side popped out and I cannot get it back in. Further, my air conditioning only works sometimes. That is, sometimes it is unbearebly cold while other times I can have it on full intensity and I am still roasting. These are a few of the many problems I have with my young pup.
