Great Car! Keep It Maintained, And It Will Last Forever! — Has been a great car the year and a half I have owned it. Enough power to be really fun to drive. I happen to know it can get into the 120 Mph range. The LX had the 2nd least powerful engine as well! I drive my vehicles VERY hard, and this one has held up fairly well all things considered! I usually get about 34 Mpg. Mainly related to the age of the car, but I have had to put some money into it. The shocks were getting a little sad and needed to be replaced, as well as front and rear lover control arms (all of which I did myself). The one big expense was when my transmission crapped out on me. Looking back I should have replaced it myself, but I just had someone put a low miles one in for me for about $1200. I have a sneaky suspicion it was abused before though. I also got mine cheap because the speedo was erratic. I purchased a gauge cluster and transplanted the electrics for $60, and it is good as new!

1993 Honda Civic Ex Sedan Review — The car is nice for its year and milage but lacks in the overall torque and horsepower even though I have the standard transmission it seems too slow. The Civic EX sedan comes with the 1.6 VTEC motor which is ok for the average driver but it lacks in performance. A good engine swap to a nice B18 would really help in the performance factor. The car is in very good condition it was no major damage 2 the body work and the paint is still good. The honda civic is one of the most reliable cars out there on the market now. As long as I have had the car i haven't had to make any major repairs and the gas mileage is amazing. I find myself extremely happy at the gas pump, with only $35 the tank is full.

I Love It — this car is more than capable of taking you to hell and back with minimal problems. it has the best gas mileage 48 to55 mpg. It has amazing acceleration for only having 92 horse power thanks to its V-TEC E. its looks are clean inside and out and handles better than most cars. maintenance is very affordable. This car is pure fun.

Pros

Reliable, cheap on gas, lots of power from a 1.6L engine.

Cons

Bushings in the Shifter/Linkage tend to wear out easily, Circuits for lighting isn't as reliable as the motor.

1993 Honda Civic Si — I bought this car about 3 weeks ago and I love it! Top package you could get in 1993. Power sunroof, mirrors, power steering. Runs and drives strong! Can't ask for much more power from a 1.6L Inline-4. When VTEC kicks in, you better hold on, cause she purrs like a kitten. Very good on gas also. Only costs me $25 (ish) to fill the tank, and it lasts me quite a long time. It's also very reliable, as I drive it pretty hard every day, and she's still holdin up for me! By far the best car I've ever owned. Then again, I haven't owned an S2000.... yet.

Just Buy One — Hondas are pure quality. Last forever. Yes thin metal that makes for rough body lines. Cheap and easy to fix. And built right can beat out muscle cars. Is it fun to drive? being a 80's z28 with a stock 4 cylinder? is that fun to you?

Old Civics Rocked — The engine never dies even running it dry (no oil) for a week There is no rear weight so it was great for driving in the snow. It was a very simply built vehicle so it was easy to tinker with and learn about cars. It was very economical as far as fuel economy was concerned.

Great Mileage As A Commuter Car — This car gets between 33 and 40 miles per gallon. As such, any issues are irrelevant when trying to save money. It takes unleaded fuel. The oil is not synthetic. The ride is not too stiff or too spongy. Instead it's a comfortable ride and inexpensive. Definitely a great car to drive if you don't care too much about appearance or the dirty looks you get from larger vehicles' drivers.
