Is this in question format or does someone want to flag this too? Like I asked in my last question but was rudely deleted, I am looking for either a Honda or Toyota. I really would like to get a Civic but all of the blown transmissions and rebuilt motors give me doubts. I understand it depends on how people take care of things. Very few people are as anal as I am so I pretty much assume the worst with the last owner. After looking at both Honda's and Toyota's I have seen a lot of Civics in bad shape or very expensive. I am not here to bash Honda or promote Toyota (like a recent poster accused me of), I actually would love to get a Civic EX, I like the style much more than Camry or Corolla. I know the 2001 Civics are the ones to stay away from, but what are your experiences with 97-2000? Or 2002-2005? Are you a Camry/Corolla person or Civic/Accord and why?
