1997 Honda Civic

Anonymous was the description one person gave the 1997 Honda Civic. Certainly it looks plain, and that is where anonymous stops. Long term, overall cost of driving and maintaining this vehicle is at the top. Resale value for this automobile is better than most compacts. And, for a price ranging from 1,500 to 3,000, it is fairly comfortable for such a small car.
