Pros

save gas, reliable

Cons

hills

Beautiful And Reliable — Reliable, great on gas, but gutless. Maybe a vtec would help but it has no power uphill at all. Also the litte things break easy like the hood latch, visors, and window motors. Of course I've put 40,000 miles on it in a year without any problems.

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!

Pros

Reliable and cheep to own

Cons

Not so funny with the 1.4 liter engine

25

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

Pros

It is a powerful car with reliable performance.  I never had engine problem with it. The radio and CD player is loud and gets good reception. I love driving down the road with windows down listening to the music. The manual gear is fun to play with and makes driving very fun each time you're on the road. But I think the best of this car is the gas saving.

Cons

This car does not have A.C when I bought it and have been driving with it the last three years. Though the heater works well. Never need to use either of it though.

The Sports Car To Go — It saves a lot of gas. I travel between home and school and work often and the gas saving is really amazing. I have replaced new tires and the rims are new too. Never broke down before, which is a plus!
