My Little Ex — It's a Honda. Need I say more. I get about 30 mpg's on a good day. But I do rag on it a little. It has a sporty look and it handles pretty good. As with any car it is a little sluggish on hills. Thanks for taking the time.

Awesome Car — very reliable, cheap on parts and labour. quick and fun to drive, u can find parts for it anywhere. original d16 enge blew at about 250 000ks, but bought and installed the new motor super cheap. 50$ in gas will last about 2-3 weeks.

Honda Civic, Not As Dull As You Would Tend Tp Think. — Performance: only 127 HP here, even with the Vtec Equipped D16Y8, but manages to keep it funn by putting all of those ponies north of 6 grand. still, dont expect an amazing 0-60. around a corner though, is a totally differnt story. i have yet to drive a car that is as easy as this one to drive hard and fast. in the VERY rare occurance that the front end actually does back out, it dose so in a very easy and controlled manner. i just wish mine was a 5 speed :P Build Quality: its a Honda. my window rattles every once in a blue moon. thats all. did i mention its 13 years old? Appearance: very conservative. it certanly isn't going to turn heads, but i almost like that. the interior is fairly well laid out and all be it very concervative, it some how manages to not be too boring. im also a very big fan of the very thin steering wheel. Cost of ownership: when i got i civic, i was expecting 30+MPG. not the story with the automatic EX model. expect closer to 23-25. not bad, but my dad's LT1 Firebird has it beat in that aspect. other wise though, its a honda. change the oil and replace the timing belt is about as intensive as maintnets gets. Fun Factor: supprisingly high. i really do enjoy my little honda on a good curvy road. also the fact that it redlines at 7grand, and actually runs up to it, is always a plus. over all: i like it better than i thought i would! yeah i get laughed at, but so what. i enjoy my little civic. i just wish it was a 5 speed model!

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

Who Doesn't Love A Mid-nineties Civic? — We all love the Honda, she's a beast, and a ton of fun. Fast off the line and still kickin' past the 100 mph mark. A solid investment and loves to be thrown around. (Important traits for me) Next car will probably be a Honda, unless I am somehow a great deal more wealthy by then :-)

Great Car To Get From A To B Cheap And You Get There Everytime. — Great car. Never really anything other than gass and oil and gets great MPGs. Not a race car but with a few bolt ons gets about a 10 sec 0-60 while still getting 40mpgs. not a ton of room but from work and back cheap haven't found anything better.
