I have a 2002 Honda Civic EX Sedan (auto) - the a/c worked well for a while but just in the past two days, in 90 -95 temps. outside it is not cold anymore - merely cool, even when I have the fan turned all the way up. I do not understand about compressors or different settings - all I know is that when I pushed the a/c button the green light did come on, but the best it could produce was cool not cold air. I do not have time or patience to go thru 1,975 messages to find out if I am alone - this is my first time using this msg. board - is there a space or blank on the designated make of car where I can type in the problem or subject such as "air conditioning problems" and there will pop up the no. of the message(s) that pertains to this? Thanks for the help - hot and wishing I had kept my trusty 1990 Corolla with its icy cold air!
My 2002 Honda Civic EX Sedan (auto as well) only is giving cool air not cold. I'm in Northern Va and the past two days it has been in the 90's. I plan on calling Rosenthal for an idea of why its doing this but right now don't have the time to take it in. But just wanted you to know that you aren't alone!
#2032 of 4041 2002 Honda Civic EX/automatic Trade in Value
Jun 26, 2002 (4:52 am)
I have a 2002 Honda Civic EX/automatic 4-door with 18,000 miles. I want to trade the vehicle in, but because it is so new, there is no online services that can advise me on its trade-in value. Can you help me? I am ballparking around $14,500 - $14,750. Is that range reasonable?
Start by checking the invoice for a NEW car of the same model. This is what a dealer pays, less holdback, for getting a new one to sell. Then ask yourself what YOU would discount the car for beyond that if you were a dealer looking to buy your car.
My rule of thumb is to take the current invoice for a 2002 Civic EX [about $16.7k] and subtract current dealer incentives, holdback, and about 10-15 cents a mile, assuming otherwise perfect condition. That results in a figure very close to the lower of the range you are quoting.
And then remember this: "value" is just a word that describes what a willing buyer and willing seller have decided to agree on at any moment in time. Take the car to a few dealers, offer it for sale, and you will have your answer. About 50% of the time, I don't "trade" cars in the traditional sense when I buy, but sell it either on the private market or by shopping it to new car dealers of the make I'm selling. This always results in a fair price, even if it isn't as high as you were hoping.
The VIN you describe sounds like an Ohio car. If it were from Japan, there would be a J in the first 3 digits. But how the Ohio and Canadian plants are distinguished would require someone who has a Canadian car to tell you. I'm 100% sure yours is North American built, and 51% sure it came from the Ohio plant.
You are right. I think "1" is Ohio, "2" is Canada, "J" is Japan and "S" is England I am guessing this one now.
My 01 Odyssey was assembled in Canada it starts with 2H. 02 Civic was assembled in Japan it starts with JH. Your 02 Civic is asembled in Ohio it starts with 1HG, and I remembered (if my memory serves me correctly, you know due to old ages ) I saw a black Civic Si which was assembled in England starts with S 2 months ago. I just checked my dealer's inventory all their Civic Si start with S. So my guess "S" is from England. Final Answer.
if your VIN starts with a 1 or a 4 - it was made in USA, if it starts with a 2, it was made in Canada - if it starts with a J, Japan - I think this is right. My old '86 Honda Civic was made in East Liberty, OH - a darn good car - served me well for almost 15 yrs.
