Quality in the early 2000's were not great for several Honda models. But, build quality is only part of the problem.

Honda tried a bunch of new things on the 7th gen Civic and I don't think they spent enough time vetting it before releasing them. They focused a lot of attention on safety and increasing interior space, but seemed to have overlooked problems in their new McPherson strut suspension, their redesigned D-series engine, and their transmissions.
