#79 of 86 2000 Civic H/B
Aug 30, 2003 (7:36 pm)
Anyone know approx. how many were built and if autos were more common that sticks? I want a Civic H/B with an auto tranny, so a MY2000 is what I'm looking for, coming off a 3-year lease. Too bad the current Civic H/B is stick only, a major mistake imo.

I just bought my 2000 gt-s celica last August. I searched the net for about a month and I ended up paying about $15,000 for mine. personally, I've never had a problem shifting within the narrow power band but my X b/f drove it and misshifted badly. Now I'm having multiple ongoing problems with missfiring, valves etc and I've shelled out 1,275 bucks so far for this problem. If you can't drive a stick then don't get this car. If you can drive a stick carefully and respectfully, go for it. You'll LOVE it.

the civic hatch was mostly gone, they sold what, about a dozen that year? I will bet there were more manuals than autos.

were lamenting that the only civic hatchback was the Si. They remember the "good-ole days" when the DX hatchbacks would fly off of the lots.

I actually liked the 1996-2001 Civic Hatchback, but I wished they offered it in EX trim. Just like the UK Civic hatch with the power everything, sunroof and cruise, but they did not. So the current Si fit the bill perfectly, being an "unloved child" it ws actually cheaper than an Ex.

Hi, i am planning to buy it with around 140000 miles about $3500. The previous owner had changed the timing belt and water pump recently. Is that worth? I will use it until graduate (3 years or more). Could you guys have any advice?

A timing belt / water pump is a $300-400 maintainence item. If the owner had this done then that is a good sign that it has been well maintained.
Also check the tires. See that they match and that they have even tread wear. If they are mismatched or worn out...that is not such a good sign.
$3,500 sounds reasonable for an Integra in good shape depending on the year.
