Honda Daily Driver — This car has had the best cost of ownership experience I can possibly imagine. It performs well in a daily driver mode, but excels in it's efficient gas usage, and handles well, making it a fun car to drive. The only downside is that it doesn't take hills well, and power? None that I could see.

Everything is a + love everything ive done to it.

Cons

There is nothing negative about this car!

Love My Honda! — Too many things to love about the car, tons of aftermarket stuff. Many engine mods available, from full swaps to internal upgrades on the stock motor itself. Very great on gas even with it heavily modded, which not only makes it easy on the wallet but even more of a joy to drive.

Honda Civic 97 Sedan — Car is 11 years old and does not require so much repairs apart from maintenance tasks. Performance is more than average with little modification. Appearance was enhanced with a new paintjob. Gas mileage is a bit lower than the regular car maybe because of modifications on exhaust. With the modifications on the sound system, its trully fun to drive.

Cons

Could have more power to make it feel great

Honda Civic — Overall it's a good car. This small car is agile and accelerate with ease...but still missing some power in the engine. The handling feels great. But I've got repair that car a few time because of the winter. This car don't perform at his best in winter and some part break easily. The appearance of my car is kinda crapy since I've got an accident on the front of the driver side. But still, that car is fun to ride!

1997 Honda Civic LX Review

Pros

Amazing very rare factory leather interior.

Cons

Didnt have a vtec engine.

45

My "other" Civic — This car my mom bought from her friend for me because it had such low miles (58,000) and was only $5,000. It was an LX model, so it had all the nice luxuries of the EX model (power everything and sunroof) but not the vtec engine. It had a 1.6 litre SOHC non-vtec engine with 5 speed manual trans. The one really nice thing about this car was, that it was owned by the famous "little old lady" that everyone wants to buy a car from, and it had a full MINT leather interior. This is strange for a civic, but it was an option and they do exist. I was just one of the lucky few to own one. I had this car along with the white civic and the mustang, but sold it to my cousin soon after the accident because it was 5 speed so I no longer had any use for it.

A Quick,cheap "ricer" That Is Very Reliable! — I have owned this car for a little over a year, and it is perhaps the best car I ever drivin since everything is perfect! I only have MINOR things break (parts under $60) and you can easily go 2,000 miles over on an oil change befor realizing you need it changed, EXCELENT Gas millage and the stock clutch is pretty lightweight but I would recommend a replacement at 120,000 miles for an Excedy (or somthing close) but over all it is an excelent car!and easily customizable! (yet you need to make shure the parts are for the Hatchback Model!)

Honda Heaven — Well, the Honda is a good reliable car. We don't have to take it in very often. Non-American made cars tend to last a lot longer. I love to just drive this car everywhere!
