Buyer’s guide: the Honda Civic story

The 2001 - 2011 Civic models were available in two-door coupe, hatchback and four-door sedan body styles. 

The transversely mounted inline four-cylinder engine used in these models is equipped with electronic fuel injection. 

The engine drives the front wheels through either a five-speed manual transaxle, six-speed manual transaxle, four-speed automatic transaxle, five-speed automatic transaxle or a Continuously Variable Transaxle (CVT) via independent driveaxles. 

The suspension is independent at all four corners, featuring front coil sping/ shock absorber units, and either rear coil spring/shock absorber units or shock absorbers with independently mounted rear coil springs. 

The power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering unit is mounted behind the engine. 

The brakes are disc at the front and either discs or drums at the rear, with power assist standard. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is available on most models.
