>love This Car> — Performance - acceleration quite good, but it is best for slalom. Quality is great, only money car is taking - for tires, oil, filters and none for repairs. "Honda - make it your self" this car is made to be tuned - it's wery easy... Maintaince cost wery low. Mileage - less than 70k And yes. It's fun.

Pros

Built like a Honda...Revs like a Honda.

Cons

Accelerates like a van, handles like a van and about as comfortable as being stabbed!

Honda Civic - Just Noise? — It is often said that the Italian Government is capable of making a lot of noise without actually getting anywhere...well this must be the automotive alternative. Performance wise, 115bhp is all you get from a 1.5, and that is only available at about 5,000rpm (the engine can rev to 6,800rpm easily!). Handling and acceleration are a bit to be desired, but that is my own fault, due to the 'sound system' in the boot. Understeer is horrendous on any surface and the brakes have a tendency to overheat quickly...so it is not reallt a car to push on in. Not much to be said about build quality, other than it's built like a Honda (the only problems so far have been losing ABS and the indicator cancelation...but they have repaired themselves) The appearance is enough to make children sick, it is ugly! The exterior looks like a Bee with a bit of botox, and the inside is just grey plastic on top of grey plastic. The seats are extremely uncomfortable, and the ride is not helped by the stiff suspension. Overall, not very plesant. Fuel consumption is terrible, especially if you drive it properly, which in turn would mean you get through quiet a bit of engine oil. More importantly, however, is the driving experience...which is brilliant! Thanks to a new intake and exhaust, the noise it makes is biblical, and if you rev it into the Vtec, it just goes mental. Even when you drop it down to 3rd at about 70mph, you have silence followed by a kick followed by a loud electronic scream, which is exciting. So if the road is clear, no speed cameras and you have enough fuel, it would be hugely fun, but on the other 364 days of the year, the ride and the greyness is impossible to live with...logic says I should have just kept the Corsa and undone all the crap modifications I did on a budget!

My Whip! — Love that it's mine...when it's done i'll be happy. Already got a lot of stuff done; engine, tranny, rims, lowered, sound system, exhaust, seats, shirt shifter, gauges, etc...a lot more to come! For a 4 door family sedan, it moves pretty good

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.

Amazing very rare factory leather interior.

Cons

Didnt have a vtec engine.

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.
