My vehicle is an older vehicle but very reliable!

2001 Honda Civic EX

Honestly, the style and look of my car is great. Performance wise, my car is very efficient in gas mileage. Of course like any car, it requires maintenance, and if you do not keep up with regular maintenance then you will run into more serious, costly problems with your car. Personally the main problems I've ran into with my car, are minor ware n tare such as ball joints needing to be replaced along with the control arms. Then the normal repairs such as changing the oil and oil filter and brake change.I'd also recommend becoming more aware of your car, how it normally sounds and runs. This way if your car isn't running the same you can always look into it. Never ignore your gut when you feel like something may be going wrong with your car. For instance my car has always run fantastic. No problems. Until one day my car began to overheat. I was terrified. It didn't happen again after adding water for about 2 months, and then the real problems kicked in. My car began to idle low, accelerate slowly, and stall at red lights. My baby has never ran this way, ever. Turns out my head gasket was blown. Which can happen when a car overheats. Turns out my car overheated because there was a leak in my coolant. Big chain reaction! Could of very well of been prevented if I hadn't blew off the first time it overheated. So to all car owners and people who are looking to buy a car, id recommend my car the Honda civic ex, because it's really great on gas and the style is pretty modern but always keep up on maintenance and do not blow off something that doesn't seem like a big deal because you will pay in the long run, that goes for any car.

I enjoyed it until the head gasket went.

2001 Honda Civic EX

Until the head gasket blew, I really enjoyed the car. Obviously, it is what it is. It was an over 15 year old car and it was the entry level model to begin with, and had 150,000 miles when I got it. But I used it to deliver pizzas and put about 40,000 miles on it. The fuel economy was great -- about 32 mpg on the highway and about 29 in town. It only had the small 4 cylinder engine but the intown pickup was surprisingly good. Unfortunately, it just is not worth enough to justify the expense of replacing the head gasket so I had to quit delivering. I just use it now to limp around town and I realize I am already on borrowed time, but what can you do.
