Awesome First Car, Love It. — The car has great gas mileage and a pretty solid build without to many cheap things to break. Cost of ownership has been cheap.Don't get it if you want performance, but it does take corners well enough to be fun.

Possibly The Most Popular Economy Car. — Theres probably a zillion Honda Civics out there, some are nice, a lot of them not. Mine was a 98' Ex coupe with the 1.6 vvt 4 popper with the 5 speed manual. My Honda was a good example of why Car Fax is a good idea to use. This car was completely totaled out and slapped back together. Sold it shortly after I found this out of course. The 1.6 was good for about 130 H.P. and was right on par with acceleration to an early 90's Miata.

Fun To Drive Around — Overall a great car. Amazing gas mileage, I can get an average of 30 mpg. It's a five speed so I enjoy driving it and for a 4 cylinder it has decent acceleration. I would recommend it to anyone as a first car or just one that's fun to drive around in.

I Give It A Nine Out Of Ten. — This car gets 38 MPG high way with a cold air intake. Acceleration is great, no major repairs needed, and it is fun to drive. Cost of owner ship is very low, and the overall appearance is not bad. I love this car.

I Love Civics — The car is only fun to drive if you have a manual, civics aren't exactly made for performance or anything else other than good gas mileage and a long lasting car. They're really easy and cheap to modify so I guess that's where it makes up for not having anything interesting/performance oriented on the car. Nothing special, but I love my little car.
