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.

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.

5 speed, not 6

Great Car! — This car was a five speed, single over head cam, single v-tech car. This was a good car, not one for racing so much, but was still fun and kept up with a lot of other inports! The fiji blue was amazing!

Not much really

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.

Pros

Gas mileage

Cons

It's not a V8

25

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.
