Awesome Car For The Buck! — Gas saving, reliable car, bought it at 240000 miles, and have not had a problem yet! Hondas are truly amazing cars, I just wish they were a bit better looking. It is definitely the right car for a college student with not much money!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas saving, reliable car!

Cons: I wish it was newer

Love My Civic — This will be the 13th year of ownership with my 1996 civic. In has 184000 miles. Apart from a few oxygen sensor related computer issues early on, I couldn't of asked for a better car! It is not just for teens and tweens. Nowadays,with the oil and gasers raking in record profits, speculators laughing in our faces and grinning all the way to the greedy banks, its nice to own a vehicle (no payments in 7 years) that can get decent milage and that lasts. However, I am kind of disappointed in the fall of the civic as of late. This new generation of civic is nothing like its great handling predecessors. Honda in general is not living up to the quality standards it helped to create in the 1970's and needs to get back to it's quality-driven roots that really came to an end at about the time the 7th generation civic rolled out in 2001.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, timeless styling, affordability, paint, trim, decent fuel economy, brakes, agility

Cons: Oxygen sensor defect

Civic Loveliness — Great overall car on a budget! Bullet proof! There aren't too many cars on the road like the one I had. I miss the car on a daily basis, and wish I could get my hands on another one! The performance wasn't necessarily there, but for someone who's interested in modifying cars, as we all know, this is the car for you!

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

Pros: Bullet proof

Cons: Nothing.

Pros: A/C

Cons: Top speed
