Pros

It's a Honda.

Cons

Nothing sucks about it.

It's Amazing. — Averages about 30 mpg city driving and about 40 highway. Fun and quick little car to drive. Built like a tank. There's never been a time where it has stranded me or not started or anything. No problems at all. Through all the heat and cold, always starts, runs, drives. Look forward to driving my baby into the ground. :) It's a Honda, what else would you expect ? ;)

I Love My Wittle Baby — Its old but its cute and it thinks its a big car!!! I love my little car! Its only problem is that it tends to get drowned in puddles and gravel and snow aren't too fun... but it tries, it thinks its a four by four...

210 Km/h Is Great For A 127 Hp 1.6l Sohc — I've owned my car for three years, and am looking to buy another one to modify. Love this car for daily driving and very easy to get around the city. Very solid in the winter and with my winter Michelins no ski hill poses a threat. Don't buy a SiR or Type R, I want them all.

Overall:

Pros

acceleration, drifting, style... Honda

Cons

high petrol usage when you pedal to the metal

25

A Drifter's Dream — It is a Honda. That says everything, but for those who don't know - it is a beast in the class and has everything you might want from a car in this price range. As every Honda it has great acceleration. It has a distinctively short braking distance and is quite easy to handle, even by an inexperienced driver. However, apart from the engine, gears and brakes, it has a weak built quality of the outer parts. It looks good on the inside and has a wonderful exterior - it is very moddable. If you play too much with the gas pedal the petrol indicator drops, otherwise it is pretty economic. Last, but not least, drifting is the real power of this incredible drive - get the tail one side and bounce on the road sideways - it's the art of real driving!

1996 Honda Civic DX Hatchback Review
Appearance:

Overall:

Pros

reliability, fuel economy

Cons

starting to rust a bit behind rear wheels

25

1996 Civic Cx — RELIABILITY & fuel economy! Have achieved 50MPG+ in summer on highway with AC off @80 km/h. Still have original exhaust and clutch at 340,000K. Only had one repair so far....a fouled oxygen sensor needed replacing. No oil needs to be added between changes. Starts first try every time no matter what the weather. Only complaint is some rusting on rear wheel well (it seems to be a problem area on this generation.) Performance-wise the car has two personalities. It's meek at low RPMs and behaves like it has a turbocharger at higher revs. It's not worth much now so I'll keep it as long as the AC keeps working....hopefully not before a Honda plug-in is available.

Awesome Little Car — Great little car, not bad size on the inside, I am 6'5'' and fit comfortably, drives nice, gets outstanding gas mileage, could use more power, very reliable, replaced clutch at 159k miles, 10 gallon tank, 36-50 mpg, is a very basic car, no power steering, no power windows, no power locks, no ABS, but is still a very solid car
