Looks decent!

Cons

Too slow!

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!

Pros

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.

Pros

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. :)

Great car!

Civics! — Honda's are known best for their gas efficiency, and their durability over time. I love my car for so many other reasons, but mainly for the simplicity of the cars mechanics. I have already done work with the intake and body work, and will be doing much more with the engine very soon. If you have a hcance to get a civic or accord, get one!

Chrisi's Car! — I like my car, it's adorable! But.... I want something that goes fast. The back tires can get a little squirley, but it gets good milage. About 30 or so to the gallon. I like driving with the windows and the sunroof down. My car even has an awesome custome sound system, so I play my music obnoxiously loud! Plus, I have an ipod adapter for it!

Drives well, little work, great gas mileage.

Cons

No trunk light, loud road noise.

25

Honda Really Is Amazing. — I love my car. There's little to complain about- except that trunk lights apparently don't exist with the lower-end models. Not to mention its got some insane road noise. Other than that though, its awesome. Its got a few bumps that I put into it, but she still loves me.
