2002 Honda Civic SE Executive 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Don't bother - buy a Ford Focus Zetec instead
This car felt more like a van to drive. The driving position was much too high.
The fuel consumption dropped dramatically when driven at motorway speeds.
The air-conditioning had to be permanently on to keep the windscreen clear.
The car tended to roll excessively when cornering.
Any ever appear to be driven by retired people (except for the Type R)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You're having a laugh.
The Honda out performs the Focus in all areas.
Just because you are having problems with your car is no reason to put people off. I know several people that can't praise the Civic enough.
The car is three times Whatcar comfort test winner (small car), plus Honda has better build, better retained value, and is more exciting to drive and own.
Instead of all this, you want to be one of the boring gang and own a Ford.
