Lots Of Fun — Great performance, decent fuel economy, fun to drive. Pity it had been abused, but still ran well for the most part. Got pretty rust, had some squeaks and rattles. I would love to have had it in better condition, though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

racing stock

Good Economy — lots of fun to drive but not alot of power. good economy for driving back and forth to work. and doesn't rattle if you have subwoofers. can be made fast as hell but stock its just not all there. and lasts forever can't kill the car.

It was a Honda

Piston Rings went!!!

Yellow Crx — Was a good car for the short term process. Made the trip up to the Okanagan, which will go down in history as a complete disaster. This was a great card to drive, good handling and acceleration for the year. Brand new it would have been fun.

It was Transportation, other than that there are no positives.

Cons

The car.

35

Honda Civic — Performance - There was non, it has a 1.5L 4 cylinder that was gutless Build - It was pretty tough in general, i slid off in a ditch at 80 almost flipped, started it up and drove out, so I'd say it was pretty tough. Appearance - This car was Fugly! No doubt about it, but it was transportation non the less.

Probably the best car I've owned

Cons

I had to sell it

35

Crx — I LOVED THIS CAR. Says it all really. The engine was awsome, the way it just kept revving. Handling was great as it was such a light car and it was well put together but you expect the with Jap motors. If I could find a good one, I would have another.

Fun, Fast, Gorgeous

Cons

Engine would outlive the body work

35

Honda Crx — There were 2 models - the 1.6 and the V-TEC. There was only about 10 BHP difference between the two models. Common issues with the car was body work rust, areas in particular that were a problem were the rear wheel arches and the sun roof. There was also issues with the spark ignitor on this model, but a reasonable cheap thing to fix. Of its time it was the fastest standard 1.6 on the market. Would easily reach 130mph. It would handle like a roller skate, a little pocket rocket!

Goes fast.Good grip on the road.Funny to take drivebyes in:-)

Cons

Bad dashboard.Ugly headlights

25

Crx — I hate the fact that it has terrrible headlights. It has poor quality on the pressure tubes to trunk. Could be a little more sportscar look on the outside.As for the inside Its dashboard looks like the one who designed it was having a really bad day on his job.

Small And Sporty — I only had it for a short amount of time but it was a fun sporty car that got killer gas mileage. It felt firm on the road and was like driving a fast go cart because it was so low to the ground. Ran like a champ and never really needed anything.
