This Is A Decent Car, Great Fuel Milage! — Overall this car is a easy car, great fuel milage, easy to modify, but has a bad rust problem on the tub, so theres a problem. It can get up and go when it needs to and isn't half bad looking either

Cons

Everything

Glad It Went Boom — It sucked! Never buy a used Honda that blows blue smoke. (I bought it with a cracked head from a pretty well known dealership... to say the least, I took it back and got to pick a different car.) Have your mechanic check out anything you buy used no matter where you buy it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Runs Great Easy To Fix And Great On Fuel. — Its a Honda so it will run forever. everything is easy to work on. it gets 35-40 miles to the gallon. very simply designed. works fairly well in the snow.

Cons

2 seats, plastic, no cojones.

Great Fun For A Fwd. Don't Crash It, You Will Lose. — Fun little car, good on gas. Car would be a ton more fun with a B16 swap, but was great in the corners. Better in the corners than the '85 vette as a matter of fact. Enough room me (6'2") even though I am sure I looked ridiculous getting in and out.

1985 Crx Si — Got amazing mileage, fuel injected, ultra lightweight, tons of space. Understeers quite a bit, but what do you expect? This was my first car, which ended up costing my dad about $350 for the whole thing, haha. Might be getting my hands on another one...?

If the pavement isn't dry then the car won't stick well.

So Small And Light That The Moped Engine Could Still Keep Up With The Best Of Them. — Dad's second crisis car. Quick, quick, quick! Fun to drive and drive hard. Great milage. I'm still not sure why we ever got rid of the car other than high miles.
