Pros

Sound system, exhaust, overall look of the car

Cons

Front bumper, stock interior

1996 Honda Civic — Car has an AEM cold air intake, along with new spark plug wires, and an aftermarket exhaust. The car sounds so nice, but it isn't the fastest car out there, that's for sure. The car has 16" wheels, with low profile tires, and is lowered two inches. Interior is pretty much stock, except for blue neon lights, covering the entire interior, and trunk. The car is very, very fun to drive, wouldn't trade it for anything! Car gets about 700 km's to a full tank.

Pros

Fuel efficiency, durable seat fabric

Cons

Made in the US (wished it was from Japan)

96 Civic — It was a fairly reliable student car -- manual locks/windows. It's the first model year of the 6th gen Civic, a lot of fans at the time hated the redesign with the "big" headlights. I grew to like it, and the better lighting it offered at night. My DX only had (an after market) power moonroof. I also had the A/C and ABS package. Build quality was not as good as the Japanese built Hondas. This Civic Coupe was from Ohio, USA. Fuel efficiency was (and still is) the best! It was a great little car, and kept her for 12 years. She's still running great for her new owner.

Pros

This car gets amazing mpg!! I love this about my car!

Cons

I bought the car as it is, and I like how it looks being lowered but it's an adjustment. Also it doesn't have power steering, which is a luxury I had gotten used to lol.

Great Looking Economical Little Ride. — This is my very first Honda, and I've only had it for a few weeks but I already love it. Can't wait to modify the intake and exhaust, plus some accessories. Fast and great on gas, this car suits me.

Worth It — after everything was done to this car that I could afford it was so definately worth all the money, ran in the 14s in a 1/4 on a stock motor, handled perfectly on the twisties, and always stoped short when you needed, and with the washin and waxing I did the paint was almost perfect for a 96

Great Reliable, Efficiant Car. — Performance - Slow Build Quality - Bulletproof Appearance - Meh Cost of ownership - Dirt Cheap Fun Factor - Yes, because you have to dog it to get anywhere, and no matter how hard you drive it you get > 30 mpg. Very reliable car for the money.

wheel well rust

25

Excellent, Great On Gas, Peppy, And Very Upgradeable! — My motor has over 300 thousand and closer to 400 thousand, im currently rebuilding it and the drivetrain. Excellent car. Honda should never have put those rubber fender protectors on the wheel wells because water sits on there and then rusts the wheelwells, over the years anyways.
