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.

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.

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!

Awesome Car — Brakes good, good pricing, accelerates well, really good steering, fun to drive, good stereo, exterior is good, except for a few minor dents. Only 102xxx miles on it, so its got a long time to go, only big problem is when you turn, you hear a little squeaking/rattling noise. Its never had any problems so I guess you could say this car is really good.

Fun Factor, Good body lines, and easily modified

Cons

It's relatively slow stock, but once you free up some of the backpressure it gets some kick

I Love It. I Like Modifying, So It's Definitely A Car To Have Fun With If You're Into That. — Decent performance, not falling apart like a lot of my friend's cars which is a plus. Love VTEC kicking in. Definitely has some potential, and I plan on working on it all summer. VERY fun to drive =) especially the way I drive.

The Honda Civic — I loved this car so much that when we were going to sell it I wanted a family member to buy it. It had the coolest sounding muffler, and it had Really nice gas mileage. The interior was really nice and smelled really good.
