    Amazingly cheap and reliable. Parts are easy to find and dont break the wallet. Great on gas, outstanding handling, and power just waiting for a turbo.
    Handling Ranked 1992 Acura Vigor better.
    "Longer and wider wheelbase. Performance oriented placement of a powerful motor, and one with a differential. Civic is totally outclassed."
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 1992 Acura Vigor better.
    "Cargo capacity is fairly close, and quite frankly the civic, pound for pound, is more efficient."

    1992 Honda Civic Hatchback Dx (clone Si) — Performance - D16Z6 Vtec Inline-4 , 5-speed transmission, Modified car that I did, The D16Z6 comes out of a Si del sol or EX civic Coupe. Motor Swap into this hatch. AEM intake, Exhaust System, Whole Engine Redone, Timed. Very Fast car. had about 150hp for a SOHC vtec car. Not bad. Spins tire to much. Build Quality - This Car, when I got it, Needed a lot of Suspension work, Rack in pinion, Lower Controle Arms, Knuckle Arm, Tie Rods, Etc. The previous owner did some serious racing in it. Appearance - Front Type-R Lip, 17 koing Rims, and Carbon Fiber Duck Bill Spoiler, Looks mean. Cost of Ownership - 25-30 dollars every week and a half. Fun Factor - Going Fast.

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

    Pros: Fast car, Fun to drive, Small Car, Good on Gas

    Cons: Lowered, Rough Ride,

    Great Little Car Fun To Drive Fast Through Tight Turns — room inside is good not cramped. slow on hill climbs. no bottom end power but lots of torque. Cargo capacity still amazes me sometimes. auto -trans shifts to much on hills. funny when "racers" pull next to you and think you want to race. parts availabillity is phenominal. Everything swaps with everything else,motors trannies etc.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: clean, small,quiet, quick handling, responsive, dont need to brake just let off gas and ease back on power, no wind buffeting noises, smooth suspension (even stock)

    Cons: brakes fade quickly on backroads,drum rear, no power, auto-trans, easy/ likely to be stolen.,  to low(says passengers), fron seats un-confortable on long rides

    A Nice Car — Nice performance for a 1.6l car of its age, decent handling, about consumption, it is a sucker between 6000-10000rpm, if you keep it cool (below 5000rpm) it is a regular car. had a few sensor problems, map and L went bad but they were cheap. this car looks bad and it is what it looks..

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

    Pros: reliability and Vtec

    Cons: sucker

    Old Faithful — Well, its by far not a high performance vehicle. 0-60mph in about 8 seconds, but what it lacks in acceleration, it makes up for in the corners. It hasn't always been a jewel, but after removing the rear seats and fabricating a custom, flat cargo floor, its perfect for doing roadside mechanical work (for other people, and sometimes myself) The original motor was a d15b7 (it used to be a DX) with 326,000 miles. I replaced the top half of the engine with a USDM D16Z6 Vtec head, until, unfortunatly the bottom end went at about 504,000 miles. Its currently got another hybrid D15B7/D16Y8 that is by no means a permanent replacement (the piston rings are shot, burns more oil than gas). Time will tell what the next powerplant will consist of. Originally Millano Red, I repainted the car white about 2 years ago due to heavy oxidation on the hood and roof, I plan to return to Millano Red next spring. The Interior consists of DA Integra cloth seats, b&m GSR short shifter with weighted ITR Knob, JDM center console to accomodate my double DIN touch screen, and a few more various JDM and 4 Door parts (Armrest is a must!) Details on the stereo are top secret, for reasons I dont care to share, besides the fact that the original one was stolen presumably by someone that knew about it. As far as quality goes, I bought the car almost 6 years ago for $2600, and besides 2 wheel bearings, nothing in the car originally has totally failed (i dont count the block, it was it's time) Parts are cheap, and until I find something better, she will never be for sale.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I love the handling, the hatchback and tailgate, the design of the body, and the gas mileage (35-40MPG)

    Cons: Nothing, except for when things wear out, and even then its only temporary anguish

    Love This Car — Extremly Fun Tons of power and style that will turn heads good or bad... handleing is good for a Fwd hatch from the 90's stopping power is extremly lacking given front disk rear drum set up, makes it rather scary when decelerating from high speeds interior is updated and rebuilt which makes for a nice time in good weather Cost is very low and insurance even cheaper

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, exiting, and endless amounts of speed

    Cons: stopping thats about it

    Not Automatic — I love it, it is my school car, ash, good engine and very fuel economical. My friends call it "yar'amana" meaning "the trustee". It speed good with balance though it has been bashed in the front, the head light, wind screen and the bumpers need to be replaced but I tell you it is goodddddddddddddd.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Economy

    Cons: Punch tire when I hit a pot-hol

    Amazing Car — The Car is pretty Quick, It handles Like a BEAST. The car has never needed any repairs. The interior is stripped for sway bar. She aint pretty. It gets great gas mileage and maintenance is the regular oil change every 2000 miles. The car is a blast to drive

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

    Pros: Great Handling

    Cons: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

    This Car Is Amasing It Gets The Miles Per Gallon And Still Has Power For Those Gallons — Full cage certified for 8.50s runs 9.30s very quick car fun cruiser. The Civic is a very good car it gets good gas mileage and still has the power. NOTHING LIKE A 732 HP DAILY DRIVER. And FWD with line lock very fun for burnouts.

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

    Pros: Fast car nothing on streets will beat it on the streets

    Cons: Not if looking for family car
