    Dont Be Surprize If Im In Front Of You — I Love honda. Performance is this car is never going to die on me and i can always upgrade the motor to a faster one. Com on it runs on no oil but it could blow. The car is so light that when i see VW in the street i want to race it. Build quality depends on if u put quality parts on it. The Appearance of the car is what im working on what color scheme? so i do. It s a 4 cyls. car so its good on gas, and very easy to fix. This car is fun to drive if u like peeling and drag racing.

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

    Pros: VTEC

    Cons: i can die easier if i crash its so small.

    1989 Honda Civic Si — The 89' Civic SI is the lightest year EF chassis due to seatbelts on the b-pillar rather than the door, look at the pic.. it beats cars worth 20 times its value at solo2 autocross, turns on a dime takes every corner on 3 wheels and you could put basically any honda swap you want in to it... This was my first car, i TRIED to blow the motor for 60k miles until i broke a rod at 200k i wanted to swap a B16a1 in but i sold it to a avid SCCA auto-x fanatic who owns a honda shop and already had 2 of this car, he put a motor and suspension in it and trailers it to the track weekly :-)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything about this car is perfect, Even with 108 hp you can pull on anyone in the twisties...

    Cons: Watch for rust in the wheel wells..   Most remaining SI's have been riced out and beat on..

    Very Clean (suprise Suprise) — Awsome reliable car, 192,000 on it. Still runs like a charm, performs good, runs good, overall quality of the car is good. Bought it for $750. Car is very fun to drive. Looking to put in a stereo system very soon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a reliable vehicle that gets me from point a to point b...quickly

    Cons: Just needs a valve cover seal and a light bulb to replace..all of like $15 bucks.

    Start Off Here And Be Careful You May Be Small And Fit Between Those Cars, But What If They Hit You? — This car gives a newbe the feeling of fast, but with a great feeling of control. it has handling what is unbelieveable, breaking remarkable, and acceleration which can actually make you feel like your fast.. it design is simple, and build was made to last (without an accident), it was cheap to buy, and cheap to own. over all for a 1st car it was fun as can be.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cost

    Cons: not the size to with stand an accident

    Beater — they dont call it a honda for nothing... honda== hold on not done accelerating other than that the motor is really strong and you can beat them into the ground and they will run forever if you maintain them right..

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: durability

    Cons: does not accelerate that fast

    I Absolutly Loved It — it was my brothers and it had sweet acceleration and being a manual helped. i drove it round my sophmore year while my brother was in iraq but now my brother is getting rid of it cause an repair shop told him that they were affraid to lift it cause it was so rusted and that if he hits a big enough pot hole that it might split in half.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good gas milage

    Cons: one you get past 3rd gear it boged out on exeleration
