Zoom Zoom?? — Well being a chevy guy I never thought I'd own a civic . Never mind a rice rocket! But let me tell you what a fun car to drive!!! The mods are endless depending what you want to spend. I got lucky and didnt spend much at all for what the car does. Putting in the f22b this week end. I'll keep you up to date.

Pros: fast reliable, and fun to drive.

Cons: Small , low to the ground, and the exhaust is loud.( drives me nuts!!)

Amazing Car!!! — After 18 years of dedicated service this car finally had it when it got rearended by a fullsized dodge pickup... I hope up in car heaven you can drive on endles roads!!!! Rip CIVIC

Pros: This car has excellent gas millage and is a solid built car.  You can get parts for cheep.  

Cons: I don't know if it was because of not being undercoated properly or just winter driving but it started to rust a bit on the bottom...

Awesome Car! — This car is my first car and i absolutely love it. For such a small car it has so much performance even from bone stock. This car handles great on the corners and has never slid out from under me whilst cornering. Breaking is very fast as it is so light. Very very cheap to run and has used hardly any oil since i have owned it. An awesome car! It almost feels like a go-cart

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

Pros: Great reliable car, has great performance especially handling and acceleration.

Cons: Motor splutters quite a bit if left for months on end but thats just normal. Parts are getting hard to find as it is 21 years old

1989 Honda Civic LX Review
Ally says:
This was my first car & I loved it soooo much. Maybe had 1 minor problem with it the whole time I had it. Drove smooth, handled great, I could go on, & on about how great it was.. I would still be driving it if it wasnt for it getting stolen and abandoned so far away :/ I guess that is one of the two downfalls, these get stolen a lot! huge target for thieves & that ties into the other downfall... cops! the boys are known to profile these guys, mainly because they are always getting stolen! then also because you dont see them to often anymore... but like I said this is a great car I miss it sooo much!
