Awesome Car — Performance- Quick acceleration, smooth shifting, great brakes, tight handling Appearance- I made some small mods to its appearance (Front Grill, Rims) The grill cost $30 and totally changed the look of the car, Love it! Cost- Very good on gas, owned it for about a year now with no trips to the shop yet Fun Factor- Alot of fun to drive

front wheel drive is bad in the rain

Impressive Considering The Price — For a 4 cylinder car in it's price range, it has very good acceleration. It is inconvenient when it is rainy outside because the car is front wheel drive and will pull to the side when shifting into 1st gear or from 1st to 2nd. Braking is good, but antilock brakes are annoying. It handles well for it's class. The car is very solid and needs little maintenance on the body. I had to fix a few squeeks in the suspension myself, but it was nothing major. It has a little too much road noise though. Appearance is good and it is convenient that there are alot of aftermarket body parts. The interior is easy to maintain and easy to take apart. It gets about 30+ mpg and is very cheap to maintain. Sparkplugs and oil need to be changed on a regular basis and possibly the transmission fluid, but besides that the car seems to take care of itself. It is a fun car to drive and very safe.

ugly inside color, not enough HP

My First Car - Manual Shift — i like it cuz it's affordable, but not so much after i customize it by putting in leather seats. who would wanna sit in those uncomfortable hot chairs? leather keeps us cool. anyway the HP is only 127, way weak to climb some slopes in san francisco. but the look is amazing - almost as elegant as a mercedes

5 speed and sunroof!

Cons

Pain to put the  baby in the back seat.

My Speed Racer — Love my little car...it's used so has some dings and scratches but being a 5 spd makes up for it! So much fun to drive!!! I have been averaging between 34 and 36 mpg so that is great and it is only about $40 to $45 to fill up. Having a 2 year old still in the car seat makes it rough to get him in and out but I'll take that small sacrifice any day!

Very fun to drive, hugs the road, and takes curves in the road very well!

Cons

The stick shift is awful when stuck in traffic...starting and going can be a huge pain...would recommend an automatic.

Very Fun To Drive, Handles Like A Sports Car. — If you want good pick up in a honda civic, get a stick shift, since it's just a 4 cylinder, great on gas mileage...can last forever on a full tank, great pick-up with stick shift, power everything, must have a sun roof, adds to the sports car feel. Love this car...plan on keeping it for a long time, would like to upgrade to new honda civic ex coupe...must have an automatic transimission.

Awesome Car! — I bought this car in January 2003. Without even driving one, I already knew which model and color I wanted and knew I would love the car. Extremely reliable, never had one thing go wrong on the car. Owned the car for 1 1/2 years and drove over 48,000 miles in that time, and when I went to trade the car in, I was very surprised that I didn't end up being upside down in value and got the car paid off free and clear, without anything for all the extra miles on it. Definately holds up it's value very well.
