FYI Boys and Girls. I was checking out the performance and specifications on the 2001 Honda
engines...heard they had added a little mid-range torque and a little
hp. Edmunds road test gives this...
Civic Coupe Ex:
0-60 7.9
1/4 16.2 (127 hp)

Civic Sedan Lx:
0-60 8.4
1/4 16.5 (115 hp)
These EX times are right on the stock TIB. The LX is right on the few stock Elantra times I have found. (I believe the 5spd Elantra can do better than 8.4 and 16.5...I intend to try at the track someday soon. Anyhoo, don't take the new Civics for granted...come prepared to rock.

Don't trust Edmunds or any of the the other places that do road tests.

Alot of times they do not get the times their self they just right down what the automakers give them.

They also always tend to rate Honda high and Hyundai low<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

My brother-in-law has an 01 EX, it
does seem a bit quicker than I remember them being. Unless Honda is just straight lying, the torque and HP numbers have gone up.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>: Edmunds has been LESS than complementary about Civic performance...until now

No matter what a car's potential may be...it can't do more than the driver will let it. A lot of comments directed at cars should be
directed at the driver. No skill,no kill<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

new civics suck my ashole, they look like mirages, and mirages suck my ashole, so they both suck my ashole. im just rambling now. new civics are generally worthless cause honda is getting cheap now that they're a big name in the car industry. theyre still gonna put out some nice cars, but i think they are starting a shitty new era.

My brother-in-law, with the Civic,
drove my Elantra. He looked it over,
in and out, slammed the door, asked about the warranty and the engine.
Verdict? He thinks I got the better deal.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>He's right.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

I'd raced/beat a couple of 7G (2001+) Civic EX's with my '98 EX before turbo, they are not quicker by any stretch of the imagination..

Im wondering were you got your times Maxx??? I just looked in the Dec. C&D and the EX was at 16.7.... i ran a 17.0... and the Civic was being driven buy a profesonal.. so im guessing to to big a gap between the Accent GS and Civic EX... how do you get it being close to a tib?

Yeah, WytchDrtr, the fast times I posted are a road test from Edmunds.com....I saw a whole nuther set of times that were hella slower from MSN.com. I know that people feel like the Edmunds times are bogus...but the Elantra and Tib times I've seen there look totally
dead-on...just like what I've seen
elsewhere. Go Figure?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
