    Loved This Little Car — Got me almost 200K before the tranny went out due to getting unstuck from a ditch

    Pros: Gas mileage was awesome, pretty quick, governor was higher than most cars I raced (ie Cavaliers, Sunfires and Neons)

    Cons: It was old

    Amazing Car, Great Handling, Great Mpg! — I love my car. I've had it for almost a year now and it has had almost no problems. It could use a little more pep, but that is easily achieved with these honda engines. It handles really good!

    Pros: Good looks, Great mpg, Good Handling, Fits 4 people.

    Cons: Needs more HP

    My 2nd Car-- — I bought this car for $2500 in 2000, I think it was re-built, but it did serve me well before lots of problems came along and I had to junk it!

    Pros: Cassette player!

    Cons: burned oil, leaving a wake of smoke!

    The Shoe... Nuff Said. — Awesome on gas, 40+ mpg, chicks dig it. Just downright the sweetest car ever made by Honda.

    Cons: The fist size rust hole by the back wheel.

    Nice Performant Affordable And Extremely Reliable. — This lil rusted buket was super performant if well-maintained it would last forever. With a few modifications this car accelerated and drove like crazy cops had a hard time to catch up to it in the city. On the highway it's another story. A hard leather seted SiR Made the difference between driving rly fast and the lil old ladies cadillac next door.

    Pros: Economic, Affordable, Superperformant and cute lil look!!

    Cons: Easy to catch rust.

    My Old Car — This was my first car. Needed some work when I got it. Once I put some money into it, it ran great, was good on gas, and didn't look too bad... did not some body work though.

    Pros: The best thing about this car was that it was a standard and was very reliable.

    Cons: The thing that sucked was the rear defrost didn't work and the rust... er holes.

    Ugly But A Beauty In Reliability. — I tell ya, my car may be ugly, but it's a solidly built car, which I can take and leave at the park 'n ride all day and not worry about whether anyone's going to break into it. It's fun to drive, reliable and while not pretty to look at, it does the job--gets me from home to the park and ride and back. So, I don't ask for much. PS. I should mention I sold this car just about 2 years ago, for $300, and the gal drove it home. I called her and she said that it rode well--a little noisy (one of the window seals needed to be replaced by then!) but otherwise, the heater was a dream for a car that old!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very reliable.

    Cons: Ugly to drive once it gets like mine...  more rust than body.

    Great Fun College Car — The 1990 civic standard has adequate power from its 1.5L 70 HP SOHC I4. The Gearbox is pretty smooth and shifts easily, with a solid clutch pedal that has the right amount of resistance. There are times i wish there was a 5th gear particularly on highways. The handling is good with independent rear suspension providing a connected and fun driving experience. The car is not very fuel hungry as living in the city i managed 33mpg average with some highway driveway. While the Civic's styling isn't amazing it is functional with everything being easy to find and comfortable to reach from the driving position. The build quality is very good as even after 20 years of neglect the interior is in fair shape and the engine just needed a tune up.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Best driving cheap car i've ever driven.

    Cons: Low height makes getting in and out of a little difficult for taller people
