1998 Honda Civic

The 1998 Honda Civic earned an overall super-high rating from reviewers, and more than 90% of owners said they would recommend the '98 Civic to others. Fans praise its easy handling, fuel economy, low maintenance, and more than adequate cargo space.

The negatives were its size (but it is a compact, after all) and lack of power, especially when driving uphill. However, if you would like a car for daily use, you may want to try this one and could likely get one at a reasonable price.
