Pros

Very reliable, drives like a dream. Preety good looking.

Cons

Sort of a gas-guzzler in the city.

Perfect Toy — Awesome acceleration, since it has good horsepower and is very light, good brakes, and perfect handling with the proper set of tires. Very well built, tough, and very good looking and confortable. Does burn quite a bit of fuel when driven in the city traffic, but hardly consumes on the freeway. It's one fun thing to own.

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

True Alcoholic Car — All the damage has been mine. Severeal recks and pleanty of body damage, but she still is runnin like a champ! The paint has dicintigrated off of the hood... not my fault... I think because of heat and age. I'm impressed that after all the accidents she's still on the road! Yay!

Honda Civic 1.6 Sr — Very nice car for his age. Good acceleration, excellent braking and excellent handling. The build quality is fine - a bit noisy but I can live with it. I like the appearance of the car very much and hell it does is fun to drive!

Not so funny with the 1.4 liter engine

By One! — It's starting to fall apart due to its age. Some rust in the rear fenders and on the hood. Not the most inspiring car to drive, but it's pretty reliable. Has 11000 km on the meter and I think I have som electric problems, it's hard to get it started when it's been left undriven for a while.

My Civic Hatchback — Ok, I just got the car and I really do like it! I have some work to put into it (Paint and such) but it is excellent otherwise! The only downside of this car is that there is no AC...or cruise...CD...proper speakers...or power anything! lol

Loved It — The car was a great car to drive...it was very fun to drive as it was a manual. It had some issues with the transmission and brake systems but those may have been from the hard driving both the preivious owner and I put it through.

Treat To Ride — It's my honda. A great car to drive. Acceleration is well over other cars in same class. Maintenance is easy if you did servicing on time. It hardly needs any replacements. Its a ride that every one should try once at least. Happy to be a Honda fan boy
