Pros

Fun, exiting, and endless amounts of speed

Cons

stopping thats about it

Love This Car — Extremly Fun Tons of power and style that will turn heads good or bad... handleing is good for a Fwd hatch from the 90's stopping power is extremly lacking given front disk rear drum set up, makes it rather scary when decelerating from high speeds interior is updated and rebuilt which makes for a nice time in good weather Cost is very low and insurance even cheaper

Pros

built for dependancy but capable of the race track

Cons

not a good car to put on a track with stock engine internals or suspention

I Love This Car Hands Down, Has Lots Of Potential For Performance And Dependancy — i love the handling of this car! performance will be beautiful once i drop in my JDM vtec engine! maintainance of the vehicle is fairly low! this is a very fun to drive car, drives smooth although it is a bumpy ride it handles extremely well! but it does need some more work on the cosmetic side of things, its not quite up to par on my expectations as far as visuals go!

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

Civic Hatchback: An Understated Jack Of Trades — The single cam VTEC is lovely as it sips gas even when the valves open up at 2500 RPM and it really gets going. Not the fastest or best handling, but one of the most reliable and nice looking compact hatchbacks I have seen on the market. I have over 175,000 miles and it runs very well and gets 35 to 42 miles mer gallon on a regular basis. Repairs are simple in comparison to other cars I have owned. I have to say that there were many times that I'd volunteer to help a friend move and they would look at the Civic and scoff. They were then surprised as much of their apartment would dissapear as I'd folded down the rear seats and fill the car to the roof from the back of the front seats. I'd just smile smugly... We have fun. I'd buy a new one if Honda would bring the hatchback-back to the U.S. But until then...

Pros

Fuel efficient, neat lines, very versatile for college student.  

Cons

Injection system failed at one point, was only issue I ever had on it.

Lean, Sporty — First new car I had (had used hand me downs before this one). It was very cool, bright red. I once managed to cram 8 people in this car - don't ask. This car went through hurricane Andrew getting minor dings and bumps. Great little car.

great mileage, lots of pep

Cons

common rust problem with older civics around wheel wells

Little Car...big On Savings — I love my beater car! Gas mileage over 40mpg and it's got lots of spunk for being a 4 cylinder. I only wish it wouldn't be rusting so bad! It's got over 280,000 miles on it and I haven't had to do much to it at all!

Great Little Car Fun To Drive Fast Through Tight Turns — room inside is good not cramped. slow on hill climbs. no bottom end power but lots of torque. Cargo capacity still amazes me sometimes. auto -trans shifts to much on hills. funny when "racers" pull next to you and think you want to race. parts availabillity is phenominal. Everything swaps with everything else,motors trannies etc.

Get The Groceries, And Handle The Curves With Ease. — Fun car to drive, good gas mileage, very reliable, and unique. Exceptional car for being an 18yr old car. Gotta have the 5 speed tranny with this car, not a lot of get up and go, but there are a lot of engine options out there (i.e. B16, B18, k20, etc.).

Slow, dated, stereotypically "ricer"

Great Car To Own And Drive! — It is great as a daily driver; cheap to buy and maintain. Not very powerful, but it also doesn't weigh much. May be modified extensively, so check before purchasing. Very fuel-efficient, even with poor driving habits. Fun to toss around town!
