Good Economical Car! — It can be souped up in nearly a million ways! The car is extremely fun to drive, and is much better a Toyota Camry, or a Corolla. Also very good on gas! Several mods can be added to the car which will make the car look amazing. Not many cars can be modded as this one!

Urban Perfection — This car has realy good road behaviour. Sticks to the road BUT can't go over 200 kmh :( For a 1.4 stock engine with 90 Bhp I could say it's pretty quick on the start and it could "punish" cars with bigger engines. It's a great car for the city. Easy to manuver and it has realatively low gas consumption. Suspention is a little bit hard , but you get used to it realy fast. Realy fun to drive.

I get 35+mpg with over 90hp :o)  and its not broke like your american pile

Cons

you can time the 1/4 mile with a sundial and its not meant for offroad use

It's Not A Rice Burner, Maybe A Rice Cooker? — To start its got the fine Honda engineering that Should go into all premium automobiles. It's never let me down, I've only had to do the basics that you would with any other car but without any major problems. Bought it with 88k and now I got about 110k and still rolling strong. Not quite the horsepower of todays cars but how many of todays cars get over 35mpg in traffic day in and out?

everything. Great gas mileage, smooth ride, full featured.

Cons

if you're looking for power, you'll have to do some upgrades.

25

Civic — Although it doesn't score the best in performance and appearance, it's a very reliable car that I know will start every morning. It more than adequately serves its purpose as a cheap to own and drive car. It is light on the wallet at rare visits to the parts store as well as the gas pump. Though it does lack the performance I'm used to from my prior high horsepower cars, it'll still hug a turn like the best of them adding a little excitement to the drive.

Great gas mileage, 35MPG for a 10 year old car, surprizingly zippy and quick

Cons

it is a honda civic, it isnt fast or furious and i don't know why everyone says they are.

This Is A Good Car For Cheap Gas — This is a straight commuter car used to get to and from work, it gets good mileage, but it isnt as fast as everyone says. The ownership costs are low, if something breaks it is pretty cheap to fix. The car is mostly fun to drive, no power steering, no A/C so it sucks on hot days.

Peppy, Very Solid Car, Good On Gas, Looks for Price, Handles amazing in snow with the ABS and TCS package.

Cons

Cars are relatively expensive to buy, Everyone has one, Every honda WILL rust in the quarter panel after 3 years(1993-2000).

25

Civic Duty — I like my car generally, im kinda over that tuner thing and and am looking for a 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD. Its a pretty solid car, havent done much repairs for 220k. Its kinda cheap to fix as well. Mine personally was pretty peppy for a 1.6L 4cyl. And the suspension design in it is amazing. Kinda small springs but the rears are really advanced for the cars price. I would highly recommend this car to any tuner or kid who needs or wants a first car, mine was a sedan. and it only let me down once when i got stuck in a foot of snow. But then again... it is a honda civic. :)

Best Car I Ever Had So Far! :) — Nothing to say about this marvel... Only negative thing is the front light casings seems to tarnish wish gives a crap car look and reduce lights effeciency at night... Other than that... You can load this car to the roof and even the roof itself and drive it for 4000 klicks and she well do a great job. Surname: Silverbullet
