Excellent Ride — This car has one of the most comfortable seats ever. They never lost their shape and firmness in all these years. Engine power with the V-tech is pretty nice, I put a little wider tires than stock and Handling on corners improved a whole lot. I beats any other car I have had on cornering. Easy of maintenance is a plus not to mention the low cost.

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

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.

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

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.

It Rocks. — after 200,000 miles, thing runs like a dream, on its original D16Y7, no less. Prolly gonna drop a B16 in it sometime. The nice thing is that it doesnt guzzle down gas as well. Cant wait to take it out again
