"I bought this car with 16,000 miles on it and in 1 and 1/2 years have put about 80,000 miles on it. (I drive for a living) I have never had any problems with this car. We do all our own maintanance on it. Maintanance is a little more expensive than on a regular civic. A little road noise but to be expected with an economy car. I love it so much I want a new Civic but this one has carpool stickers (I live in CA) and I can't transfer stickers to new car. I love this car!"
"I got this car new and have loved it. The car holds the revs well dont need to rev high to spin the wheels. I go to the track every month to race and this car holds up well for the 127 put some bolt ons and a speed chip and u will have 165hp to the crank and 145-155hp at the wheels. The only thing that i have had to fix was the bushing on the passenger side that blow out it still ran out with poping and that part is not cheap 200+ labor other that that its a good car."
"if you have a 2001 civic automatic transmission,just be ready to stop on the way.because,transmission torque converter makes happen.my car is about 90k miles i have a check engine lights on.i went to services they said torque converter needs to replace.part is not expensive.its just around 200 bucks.but will take your tranny out,that means like replace your tranny.labor is around 1000 bucks.it is nice economic comfort car.engine is very good but transmission...i wasnt ready to that happen from HONDA..."
