Default 2001 Civic review at edmunds.com

Not sure if you guys/gals care. But there'a review of the new 2001 Civic. It's aight.
It has 1.7l. but still delivers the same 127hp on the EX but increase in torque!!! wow! 114lb-ft at 4800rpm. Nothing to shout about. but hey.... it has more tq than an Si now.
It looks like a Focus sedan from the rear quarter panels. Or a Mitsu mirage. .

man... my lest vestiges of Honda-lovin are starting to disappear, lookswise (at least from the back) + safety + interior space have all improved nicely, but aside from that considering nowadays MSRP for civics its just a little too overpriced for what you get.. and honda's increasingly crappy-increasingly U.S. based service and manufactured parts are really startin to make me miss the mid 90s... hehe

i tell ya, the S2000 and the ITR are the only hondas i can honestly say are competitive with other cars in terms of price... hopefully when (if) the nsx gets a v8 it'll be a lot more respectable too, but in terms of the civic.... damn.... major disappointment

It's an outdated aluminum car that weighs more than a new steel 911.

Neat how they made the exhaust system disappear, from both the outside & the inside. Wonder how the riceboys will deal with this?

yea what the hell is up with that exhaustless rear end?? WTF!? leave that hippie-crap to the goofballs at volvo, hehe, and honestly, the NSX is a great track car and feels incredible to drive, but for the price, the hell with it, you can mod any one of the other japanese supercars with some serious handling mods and produce MUCH more power for less than half the price.. to date, i think the NSX and the mitsu 3000GT are the only cars i can think of that have a bodystyle that is even more outdated than the impre... nevermind hehe
