Loved my 2002 Honda Civic

This car was fun to drive, comfortable for me (I am 5'3"), got great gas mileage, great maneuverability and lasted a long time. I replaced the timing belt twice and got over 226,000 miles from it, then the head gasket blew and the car over heated. If I was a mechanic, I would have done the repairs myself and driven it a while longer, but decided I had gotten my money's worth out of it. The car has a surprising amount of room in the back seat and trunk. Had a lot of road noise, although once I put some nice Michelin tires, it was a lot better. I should have done that sooner. Passengers in the back seat were not as comfortable as in the front, and it was noisier. In the summer, I would turn off the A/C if I had to accelerate up hill.

2002 Honda Civic SI

I like the interior room and relative reliability. The car has 230K miles on it. I don't care for the higher weight, poorer handling, high oil consumption and modest gas mileage. The car has used oil at the rate of 1,000 to 1,500 miles/qt. It does not handle or ride as well as my previous '89 Civic SI. The engine is geared just as short as the '89, at 3,000 revs/mile despite being 25% larger, but is hardly any quicker to 60 than the '89. Steering feel is nowhere near as good as the un-assisted '89. Curb weight is is 20% higher too. Surprisingly, gas mileage is worse too. Even w/ Michelin Pilot tires, stopping distances are poor. The brakes are undersized for the weight. My '89 w/ 250K miles w/ the original drums and rotors, the '02 has gone through 4 sets of front rotors and should have had at least one more as the shudder on stopping was bad.

Great, reliable car

This fuel-efficient car has a lot of pick up and speed. It's fun to drive, hugs the road, and is the favorite date car with my wife.

Good young adult car, not with a child

It always has had a problem of some sort for the past 5 years. The transmission thing blows my mind. I love how it looks and drives but I'll never get another civic
