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!

Fuel Efficient, But Not Big Enough — My wife and I were happy with the car, however we ran into some unexpected repair costs due to a previous owner adding excessive after market parts. The car would be best if left as original as possible. Otherwise, the car is great and gets you from points A to B while saving you gas.

Pros

This car has been a reliable car for my wife for the past 14 years, we have taken trips and used it for daily commutes for many years, has nice new tires, starts easily, well maintained and safe to drive in the winter. Lastly, on the highway it has gotten 34 mpg last time we drove it, in the city it still performs well with 29 mpg.

Cons

Other than its intended size/ purpose, I'm not sure what to write here, I have enjoyed driving it even though I'm 6'0 and 230 pounds.

Great First Car For Someone Or As A Second Car — As with most Honda Civic's, they were built to last and this car is no exception to that rule. It has a yearly average of 6400 miles a year and with usual changing of the timing belt and water pump it should easily go another 90,000 miles.

98 Honda Civic Coupe --great Car — With the raising high cost of gas these day this Honda Civic Coupe is one of the best vehicle in the market today. It's a 4 cylinder so its great on gas. It's coupe style makes it a great car to hook up and add extra accessories to. You can pimp this ride or just ride it how it is stock ether way you will be noticed.

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
