2001 Honda Civic LX 1.7L from North America
Another defective first generation vehicle
The transmission failed completely and without warning at 118,000 miles. This occurrence is a market-wide problem for 2001 Hondas. The company is doing little to relieve the $2000 cost to me to repair the problem that is arguably a manufacturing defect.
Cloth headliner in interior cab has detached from roof.
Headlamps fog easily.
Paint is prone to scratches and dents from minute sources.
Overall, the car has been reliable and cheap to maintain. The transmission, however, should have lasted at least until 150,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
