Great Family Or First Driver Vehicle. Reliable — This isnt a car you would purchase if you are looking to get the "drivers" experience. It was made to be a reliable and comfortable car without all the bells and whistles. I would recommend this for a new (smaller) family who needs transportation or for a new driver. It is easy to maintain and easy to handle. The car it self is top quality in terms of being a reliable source of transportation. The gas mileage also helps during todays mega gas prices. All in all, I have enjoyed the many years I have owned this vehicle. It got me through my first years of driving and has been a reliable partner throughout.

Great College Car. — Performance - low torque, quick but its a civic, good handling, solid feel, and fun to drive. Build Quality - Engine and drivetrain very well built, at 100K and have had no major repairs Appearance - interior a bit plasticy, but has few rattles. Exterior is Silver and still looks good Cost of Ownership - VERY CHEAP, Summer Gas Mileage 35-42 mpg, Winter Gas Mileage 30-35 mpg, low maintenance

An Excellent Vehicle To Own If Cost Savings Is Top Priority — This Honda Civic is comfortable and has a classic Honda look. The gas millage ranged between 32 and 38 miles city and highway miles and part if needed are easy to find and low in cost when compared to most other vehicles. While the care does lack acceleration due to its 1.7L engine the handling and overall drivability are excellent

Commuter Car — Great little car. Economical and clean. The stereo is awesome and it has a security system that keeps it safe, Triad system I believe. The color is green and I like that because it stands out among all the white and blue and silver ones.

Worth Another Engine — Bought it with blown engine at 184,000 mi. Replaced with used engine & sold to daughter who loves it. Great fuel economy. Very loud tire noise disappeared with new tires (not much noise insulation in these less expensive models). My first Honda.

Good Little Car — Bought the car in 2001 as a loss leader. Survived Oregon, moved to Nevada, another move to Washington. Great fuel economy. Endured 7 accidents (crazy Oregon drivers). Had regular maintenance. Only major maintenance was changing the exhaust manifold and just had an issue with the transmission. But it was after 190,000 hard miles.

Superb Mpg! — I love Hondas. This is my 3rd one and an all around great car. Very reliable, great MPG, and the manual draws a decent amount of power from the 4 cylinder.

Pros

I get great gas mileage, 30city and about 40 highway.  The seats are comfortable.  Not really any blind spots while driving and the car handles really well.

Cons

If you are taller than average you may have complaints about leg room and height.

Economical — The body of this car is much shorter than my last (a Pontiac) so it is easier to handle, especially getting in and out of narrow parking spots. I appreciate the great fuel economy and the champagne color paint since it does not show dust and dirt as much as other color options.
