1973 Honda Civic HatchbackReview
revbaby writes:

Cute Trash — Transmission went out at twenty-one days and 700 miles. The dealer kept the car for 37 straight days. Needed plugs every 3200 miles and the hatch rusted out at twelve months and 9000 miles. It was fun to drive and got excellent mileage when it happened to be roadworthy. My next Civic, a '99 model, was a little better but not much. This thing about Honda quality is way overated. Worst cars I have ever owned. Gimme a Chrysler any day!

Pros: Cute, good mileage, fun to drive.

Cons: Both Civics--1973 & 1999 nothing but trash.

Great Drive, Great Mileage, Great Parking, Plenty Of Room For Friends. — This was my high school car, and it was the best thing going. $3.00 filled up the tank at the time, and it seemed to run forever on that little tank of gas. It took us everywhere. When it got too old and feeble, it was small enouogh to drive and hold the passsenger door closed at the same time!

Owner for 8 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:30,000

Pros: gas mileage, park it anywhere, easy vision, more space inside than you would think.

Cons: The little buddy rattled itself apart eventually.

I Think It Is A Funny/cute Lookin Car — the honda civics came out in July 1972 and have been pretty popular since. They are great gas savers. The first ones were really small but gradually got bigger

Pros: they are reliable gas savers

Cons: its easy to total the car in a wreck
