2001 Honda Civic LX from North America
So far, nothing has went wrong with the car for the last 5 years. It has been EXTREMELY reliable.
I am a college student in Washington, DC and I drive to Arkansas for holidays to be with the family. Two weeks ago, I drove down to Arkansas and was thinking about how many I might have done the driving - and realized I've done that over 20 times! I went to college when my little Civic had 64,000 miles, and it is now at 118,000 and I live on campus, and did a very little of driving in DC because I use public transportation most of the times. So most of the miles was done because of driving back and forth. If I had to drive to Alaska tomorrow, I'd hop in my Civic and drive to Juneau!
Of course, owning a 9 year old car, it can become boring, and sometimes I find myself searching for a newer and cooler cars, but when I actually think about getting rid of it, I couldn't! In a week or two, I'll be driving back to DC, of course, I'm taking my Civic! :)
My next car is going to be a Honda! I think I'd go for Accord or Element next time!
Speaking of Element, I always thought it was a really ugly car, until I met my boyfriend who has 2004 Element, I started driving it. It's AWESOME! So I'd own an Element if that happens! :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
Review Date: 31st July, 2010
As of January 11, 2012 - my little Civic was traded in for a 2006 Honda Accord EX-L, V6, 6 speed with built-in navigation. I love my Accord, but I also find myself having buyer's remorse sometimes, because I miss my Civic so much, still.
The Civic was actually easier to drive than the Accord, and it shifted through gears better than the Accord! The Civic had 127,500 miles.
I would have another Civic, but it would have to be a Si, since I don't think I'd be able to go back to a LX with a weak engine after having a fully loaded and powerful engined Accord! But I love my Accord!
