Pros

Reliable, fun to drive, handles great in snow & ice, cheap to run, looked good, fuel economical, safe

Cons

Cassette deck was placed in a weird spot, cup holder lid broke... really, the "cons" were minor. Insurance is higher than for other makes/models; get a car alarm/engine disable system installed (I was only broken into once, in 10+ years).

The Civic Si Is An Awesome Car! — I loved this car, kept it for 10 years until it was totaled in a crash (I walked away with barely a bump; the paramedics, cops, firemen, body shop-- all were impressed based on how fast the other car was going when she slammed into me). Several friends who rode in (or drove) my car liked it so much, they went out and bought Civics as well. They're well-built, well-designed cars, fun to drive for their category, handle well in snow and ice (I've never driven better than a Civic/Integra, in winter). They're comfortable, even for adults in the back seat on road trips. With the seats flipped down, they can carry quite a bit. Easy to find a good mechanic to maintain them. Good on gas. It's not too big, so finding a parking spot isn't too hard. Really, a very good practical car.

My Race Prepped Stealth Rice Mobile — I've had this car for over 4 years, I can't complain about it really. I've resprayed it Matte black and done a few modifications, Wheels, exhaust and a few engine mods. I've removed pretty much all the comfortable interior and rear seats to save as much weight as possible.

Pros

reliable/good commuter car

Cons

Not so impressive gas mileage/Not very pretty inside: Kinda bottom of the barrel for Honda

Reliable Cute Commuter Car — Okay, so I'm not wowed by this car, but it is easy to drive and reliable, comfortable, roomy in front and back (even if you're tall), good trunk space, fair gas mileage (not as good as I had expected: it gets around 26 mpg freeway, less than my Accord LXI with more power (which tends to affect mpg in the negative, but that car at over 15 years old avg'd 30 mpg.

Not Performance Oriented At All, But Great On Gas And Very Reliable. — This is the first car that I ever owned and will probably always be somewhat special to me, but not for actual driving. The car was an automatic and had extremely low horsepower and not great handling. But if you want a reliable car to get you from point A to point B that is very inexpensive, then you should get one.

Pretty Nice Ride — I love any Honda cars, I think they are some of the best made cars around. What I find troubling is the fact that even though the engine is exteremely good, little things around the car break easily. Overall, I love my 97 Civic. My wife also loves her 2006 Civic EX!!
