Get The V-tec — 1500 was to slow, great looking car. Honda spares very pricey. Reliabilty was bad on my one but that could be a once off as Honda are usually pretty good in that aspect. Boot space a plenty for sound. Good Car

Good on Gas.

Not very comfortable.

Good On Gas, Reliable, Good For A Racing Project! — This car comes with a D16 Engine which is non VTECH, very slow, but really good on gas, does not have electric windows, but is a good car i like it. It could be a really good project to put in a B18 engine it could become really fast becasue the body is really light.

Great Reliable Car Thats A Gas Saver, Not A Racer... Or At Least Not Right Now — Great 5 speed, awesome gas mileage..around 34 on highways id say..car is small, has a 1.4 ltr v-tech, doesn't have the best pick up. other then that it corners tight and is a fun car.. this car will last forever if taken care of.. 97 is a good year..
