If Honda Made One Exactly Like It Today, I'd Buy It In A Heartbeat! — 1983 Black Honda Civic 1500 "S". Pocket rocket! Rev happy engine, precise 5 speed shifter. Comfortable for long distances in part because of "S" only seats. Averaged 42 MPG for the life of the car. Absolutely reliable, not one problem in 128,000 miles. Still looked and ran like new when I traded it for a Miata. Wish I still had the Honda!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: FUN!

Cons: None

1983 Honda Civi Fe - Hwy - 55mpg — This was the "FE" model hatchback and was the 1st auto to have an EPA highway rating of 55 mpg! I put about 70,000 miles/year for 3 years - only service work performed - brakes and clutch. The actual mpg wasn't that far of!!!

Pros: Gas mileage, reliabilitty

Cons: small - otherwise NOTHING
