Why the 2002 Honda Civic?

Why Not the 2002 Honda Civic?

Ride smoothness

Fairly rough riding for a mainstream car; every road imperfection is felt and potholes are a nightmare. Can get tiring on a long trip.


Quite a bit of road noise in the cabin from the tires; have to talk in a raised voice at cruising speed. Engine is also noisy during acceleration.

Insurance cost

Depreciation is not a problem, but insurance is very expensive considering the age of the car, I guess because Civics are a favorite target of car thieves.

Powertrain performance

Could use more power; passing on a 2-lane rural highway can be white-knuckle sometimes. Also have to rev it high to get any acceleration. Manual transmission works great, though, and engine is willing to play along as much as it can.
