1989 Honda Civic CRXReview

Couldn't Even Get Past 1st Gear — My buddies car, I tried to learn standard on it but realized I suck at it. Its body was covered in the plague (rust). He had lots of issues with it, engine swap old one was burning oil, gas tank leaked. However it was fun to drive in once he had the new engine, other boy racers always tried to race him not knowing the new engine was way more powerful then the last. Great memories in this thing, it will be missed.

Pros: Sleek looks

Cons: I smell bondo and burning oil

Awesome Car! — This car is a sport compact classic! Super reliable, awesome gas mileage, fun to drive. I have own this thing for 8 years and never had any mayor problems. If you can find one in good condition buy it! I recommend the Si model but any other model with the 5 speed tranny.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage and reliability

Cons: None found yet...

1989 Honda Civic CRX 2 Dr Si Hatchback Review
My 1989 Honda CRX Si, which was given to me by my father 29 years after he bought the car brand new, has got to be the best car I have ever owned. Despite having 384k miles, I would say the car is just about as reliable as it was brand new. The car is an absolute blast to drive, with go-kart-like handling, a low ride height, and standard transmission. My car is also extremely economical, achieving 33mpg in Los Angeles city traffic and almost 40mpg on the highway (yes, I checked whether the wrong engine was put under the hood in the factory). It burns hardly any oil for its age, and the clutch is light enough to make LA traffic tolerable. In addition, the interior quality of the 1989 CRX is astounding when compared to several modern, economy sports cars, such as the Civic Si or the Fiesta ST. I cannot imagine myself driving anything else.
