    Review 1985 Honda Crx Si — small sports car=great millage. even as an SI!!! Performance: Fast but could have been faster. What's great about these is they're small but easy to customize and add performance modifications. Build: Nice, but like honda, cosmetics were not the reason I bought the car. Appearance. Black always looks good. Cost; Barely nothing. super great (45 miles to the gallon) This car, although not very punchy was a blast to have.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Easy performance upgrades, great millage.

    Cons: Not as fast as it could have been, overly basic (stereo would have been nice)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    One Of The Best Compact Sports Cars Ever Made! — it's the original CRX, what more? Well it is one of the best looking two door coupes ever made. It is one of the few "classic" cars ever made by Honda. It has great gas mileage, acceleration and reliability. People are always asking about it as it really is a head turner, especially the red and silver ones. All CRX owners are proud of their cars.

    Pros: It's red and silver

    This Car Is A Miracle. — Never has a piece of Japanese engineering been submitted to so extensive mistreatment and violence over such a long period and still survived. Latest status is a broken steering wheel do to very rough corner handling. If other car manufactures was building cars like this then all of us would drive cars from the 50’s.

    Pros: Light, fast & fun

    Cons: Safety, comfort

    Fast Car With Small, Torquey Motor — I drove this a long time ago when I was in my teens and I thought I was on cloud-9 driving this thing...the car was so quick, could squeal its fat tires (70-series, sporty tires). I got 45 miles per gallon out of it, which I thought was amazing considering its acceleration capabilty.

    Pros: Acceleration, mpg, fun to drive

    Cons: Small, not crash-safe, only 2 seats

    Great Lil Fun Car — This car was always fun to drive. Even more so with the larger jap motor in there. Remember beating new nicer cars and seeing their shocked eyes always made me smile. Gas tank was sooo tiny and barely had to fill it up. Awesome at maneuvering at high speeds as well.

    Pros: Super fun to drive, handles turns awesomely at high speed turns.  Perfect as a sleeper as well.  Gas millage excellent.  Super cheap parts.

    Cons: Had to replace motor for full potential.

    Fun Little Car. — Red, with lowered suspension, Borbet Wheels, Second Gen CRX Si exhaust. bought this from a co-worker to commute with. Fun little car. I almost bought one of these instead of the 84 Mustang GT for college so when he had it for sale I picked it up. I had a lot of fun driving it. It was lowered with torsion bars and the front end always bottomed out so I finally got frustrated enough to sell it. I'm not a fan of FWD car's so I'm not sure I'd buy another one although I did like it a lot. the guy that bought it worked for a stereo store in Sacramento and was going to make it into a showcar.

    Pros: Fun, reliable.

    Cons: Never got lowered suspension figured out.

    Great Handling Car For Zipping In And Out Of Traffic — Overall a fun car to drive. The styling is very basic. The car handles like it's on rails with a suspension kit and +2 wheels.

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Average acceleration

    2 Wheel Drive Hottie — needed repairs, still needs some repairs. accelerates like crazy. needs new brakes. love the styling of these little cars. gets good gas mileage with the biggest problem it has it gets 25 to 40 miles to the gallon depending on how i drive, but that is with it idling at 2000 rpms.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sweet little car

    Cons: its somewhat broken, which means so am i.
