2001 Honda Civic LX questions

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  2001 Honda Civic LX questions

OK so I am selling the Neon and am looking at a Civic as mentioned above. Car is a sedan 5-speed and has 101k miles. It has a 1.7 Single Cam non-VTEC engine, and is completely stock. The dealership which also offers a 12 month 12000 mile warranty on the car is asking $7,000 but I got him to drop to $6,500...Do you think its a good buy?

I did some research and heard the front struts on them have chronic issues, but I think it can be fixed with some KYB Gas struts. Any opinions?

Specifically looking for reliability issues other than the struts that might be assiciated with this model in the 2001 year.

Thanks for any input.

Good buy, those things last forever, and when you get the warrantey have the dealer replace the struts. Other than that I have a friend with a modded one (riced) and its got about 100k miles on it and is perfect.

I really like it. Id post a link here, but would be banned for advertising lol. The shifter is really smooth (some cars its a bit tough going from gear to gear) but here its like butter.
