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!)

Good Car — I liked it. It wasn't as good as the '95 Civic but still was a great buy. A little bigger and stronger then the previous model.

Not alot of cons for this car.

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!

EXCELLENT gas milage!  Great handling.

Cons

less than wanted power

45

Gas Milage — The gas mileage is great. However going from a 425 hp V8 beast to this was quite a change. It has been modified with a full exhaust system, intake system, and 1" lowering springs. Lack of money prevents other needed mods.

Pros

Superchargers welcome... parts cheap... easy to work on...

Cons

If you want to push the car, expect to be on your third engine (like me)

Built For Reliability. But That's Where It Ends. — It's a starting-driver's car. Car is not fast on any level and the only upgrades available for the car are dominantly body-kits.

gas milage, handling, practicality

Cons

cheap interior, gutless stock motor

Call Me A Ricer But I Love It! — I bought the car completely stock and unmollested as a daily driver, and loved the fuel economy and go cart handling. I soon blew the clutch, then decided i might as well blow the engine as well, wchich led to the first build. Even with the interior, engine, suspension, and wheels redone, it was still a practical daily driver, but it was now loud, had more guts, and handled better. Now in the middle of its second build, it will loose all practicality, but should be the fastest, best handling, best looking car I have owned yet, but with the money I am dropping into it it should be. Not the quickest car I have owned by any means, but one of the best handling, this car is by far my favorite to drive

Its A Civic What Can I Say — Civics are great cars for what they are, they will never die, they last forever, but they are a economy car so you cant expect F1 performance

Pros

Reliable Honda quality, enough get-up-and go for arround town.

Cons

It would never, never, never be able to hold its own on the track. Manual crank windows SUCKED

35

For A Daily Driver, It Held Up To The Task — Drove this car for abotu two years in high school, and now my little sister is driving it. I loved the manual transmission, and i never had any real problems with it besides the fact that the manual crank windows sucked. There just wasn't enough acceleration in it. It would have been decent acceleration for a passenger car, but just not enough for a sport car.
