No ABS brakes, road noise, leaky old weatherstrip on doors and trunk so when it rains it pours "inside" salvage title, faded paint

Reliable Econimicaal Gas Saver — Love the car overall jit gets very good gas mileage, it is very reliable, do not like the fact that is does not have ABS brake t tends to skid and slide f you have to come to a sudden stop. I just wish it was in great shape and not a salvage

One Of My Best — The braking and acceleration of my Honda Civic Coupe is very good for how much I got it for ( $300 ) If I could recommend any car it would be this one. The only thing wrong with this car is the colour (silver) which I am not fond of at all. Very good with gas because its a honda

Pros

It's small enough to get around easily. Good on gas. Handles well.

Cons

The valve cover leaks oil mysteriously. It's too low for we older folks to get in and out of easily. Seats are hard and would be uncomfortable on a trip.

Middle Age & Economy Cars — It runs o k and drives o k. Best for younger folks who drive a lot and need more economy. I need more comfort. Honda makes reliable products and this one should provide another 100K miles of service with adequate care. Thanks-good luck & HAPPY MOTORING!

Ej8 — Perfect little car. Fuel efficient, good car for the winter. It performs fairly well for a little 4 banger. It's fairly cheap to maintain and parts are cheap and easy to find. The car is fun for what it is.

First Car — Was a tank in the snow unstoppable with the Blizzaks. There were also many parts you could buy to make the car yours and not look like any one elses. It was also fun to drive and toss around on the road

Awesome! — Can get 40.9 mpg! Fun to drive. Low maintenence costs. Few squeaks. Excelent handling. Beautiful styling. Comfortable seats. Good ergonomics. Would rather have mechanical door locks and windows. Had Eibach springs and Motegi wheels when purchased. Missing intake, radio, and side trim when purchased. Pops out of second gear (most likely bent shift fork).

Decent Ride. — Its great on gas being a 5-speed and it rides smooth. Heat works amazing, definately a fun daily driver. Not too slow but not too fast either. Handles pretty well and breaking and acceleration are both decent, could be better with upgraded brakes.
