Pros

Great car all around!  It has looks and style, change body style in 2001 and has so much more room than the older model.  Gets 36 MPG!  great on gas,  handles well, and very low maintenance, just change the oil 3-5k timing belt every 90k and other fluids as needs and thats about it.

Cons

Not really much, not to much head space in the back so if your really tall, not to comfortable.  Power is ok, but if it was a V6 then it would not get the same gas millage

Honda Civics Can't Be Beat! — One of the best cars I've ever owned! up to 38MPG highway. No maintenance other than oil changes and brakes. Reliable, good handleling, power is suffice wish a little more but not like my Nissan Versa, that car is a dog! Many upgrades available and small mods and tune-ups you can do to get better performance. My favorite is Enues oil, Japanes synthetic oil, best oil available.

I love the fuel economy and driving a small car!

Cons

After 150k miles and several owners, I think she's just tired and worn down. BUT, being a Honda, I have no real problems with her.

Great Little Car! — She's a bit old, but for a first car I love her. She gives me no problems and gets great gas mileage. I'm able to fit 5 people in her, which is necessary in college for road trips. I also love that she's manual-- it's the best way to learn!

Good Car — Im in the Automotive business(32 years) and have been since I was in high school and have driven a lot of different vehicles so Im not a big Honda guy I think they are over rated but they are very reliable and will go forever if you take care of it just like anything in life but think that there is a lot of other cars out there that are just as reliable for a lot less money but I would recommend this vehicle to someone as a good car overall.

England Made Honda!!! — This Si is a very special Unit. Made in England. Not very much horsepower. Only 160. But it is fun to drive. The best part i like this car is Japanese Brand made in Euro. With the euro style and reliable japanese part.

Honda Civic 2002 Es8 Cvt Model — My first ever Vehicle and I am not regretting it a single bit... The best in looks, fuel, performance and comfort. Once you maintain it in a timely manner, you can't complain. Wish our roads are a little bit better :)

Great And Reliable Car — Not a lot of power to this car. Small for my size. Slight scratches and small ding on the body. Slight burns on the interior but can be fixed easily. Other than this it is a great and reliable car.

Honda — one thing would break after another and that was probably the worst part about keeping the car but it is great in gas, the car is really easy to drive also and its good for new drivers that are learning

Fun For A Low Price! — This car is great for the cost. It wasn't very expensive, and the fuel and maintenance are low-cost. It's perfect for road trips to visit my family, but I feel like maybe it's not the most appropriate car for me now that I'm working in a very professional environment.

Good Car For Most People — Great car. Good looks, acceleration, comfort for the money. Original owner. Needs a CD player or satellite radio. Has been reliable on trips to Florida and Kansas. I like my Honda. This car can be fun to drive. Silverado is my best car.
