Pros

overall very reliable and good looking cars

Cons

If you're looking for instant power look elsewhere these need some work done first

'98 Civic Sohc Vtec — the suspension work makes it a lot of fun to take around turns along with the sound of VTEC kicking in is amazing. Its a little slugish off the line, I would really love the money for a B18C5 engine swap. I also want some Honda Fit HFP rims before next spring with some Toyo Proxes T1R rubbers

Pros

MPG, Looks, Reliable

Cons

expensive to fix,!!!

45

Reliable Car — When you fix a honda, the parts are not cheap. The car performs well for the smal 1.6 L engine that is in it. As far as the body goes, it looks good, but it is really thin. Thump the car, and you have yourself a dent. The insurance is fairly cheap, has a really good resale value, and this car is just fun to have around, of course with the great gas milage, you can drive all you want!

Pros

Fuel efficient, reliable, fun, sporty

Cons

Repairs can be pricey

45

Once You Go Import, You Never Go Back — Performance - the engine needs work, it goes but only in the lower gears Build Quality - good overall, only needed to do normal wear & tear repairs Appearance - Interior is good, would like a little more knee room under steering wheel. Exterior needs work, rusts too easily Cost of Ownership - Very reasonable, good on gas. But save for repairs, more expensive than domestics Fun Factor - I love driving my car, it's quick, loud (aftermarket exhaust). After some exterior and engine work, it'll be a great little show car.

Honda Civic Hatch Cxi — good car. very reliable engine, if a little small. not a performance car at all, but very zippy for the size of the car/engine. very cheap to run, except parts for repair are a little pricey. appearence wise i like the car, except for the hatch at the back. all in all a very fun car to own and drive. something a little faster would be nice...but its run, reliable, and cheap. all i need!

Good Build Quality — It don't need to be repaired, everything works properly. About 7 litres per 100 km. It is really great fun to drive it!! But be carefull. This car needs a good driver with experience. You need to think about it as about friend.
