Sold It About A Year Ago. . . . .guy That Bought It Still Drives It Hard — nothing much to say, just built on crate motor. Coil over springs and ICW Rage 5.0 15" Racing rims. Headers, ram-air intake, AEM fuel rail and regulator.

Pros: Runs great

Cons: I wrecked that car as you can see like 2 times and fixed it with new parts, just never painted and totalled it again on drivers side(never fixed but sold.

Good All Around Car... But Too Expensive For What Little You Get — all around a good car, but for 5 grand it's pretty lame to not have power steering, automatic transmission, air conditioning or a decent sound system... this is the problem with most imports, they're over priced used... but once it's up to par and is not nasty grey and silver everywhere and stuff I doubt I'll hate it as much, performance and quailty are pretty good...

Pros: it looks good, it drives good, good on gas... and apparently they don't die? lol...

Cons: too pricey for what you get, no power anything.  even the tape deck is moody >.<

. — I bought my '96 Civic EX in '1998 with 24k miles on it, and have been driving it ever since. I live very close to work and now has only 112k miles. About 3 or 4 years ago I changed timing belt @ water pump my self, about 10-12K miles ago.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car still looks good for 96, Good tires, A/C works

Cons: like all car needs some minor work

Long Lasting — The Civic's are a good base line, long lasting, economical vehicle. They fit teen to elders. Comfortable ride for the most part. Great City driver that provides a lot of maneuverability in and around tight parking lots. The gas mileage is the selling point for most people.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very Solid vehicles. Made to last for many years. Family cars that can be passed down. Easy driveability.

Cons: Sits a little low for me. I think the newer modles improved on this.  Not enough power, but it is a 4 cyl.

Good Overall Performance —

Street Tuned for a little edge against road rage drivers, slow folks and ricers... it was resurrected after a freak accident and all the tuning and fabrication was done for 3 years, all the little details slowly but surely done because of a tight budget and limited availability of some parts...had a few problems but i guess it's part of the scene..there has been a lot of trial and error processes especially with the engine..considering the fact that a less powerful engine was swapped with the stock D16Y7 (swapped in a a D15B w/c has better rod and compression ratio) and most of the parts were fabricated... fun factor? OH YEEEAAAAH!!! On the more technical side, the modifications seemed to have made the Civic hungrier for fuel with an average of 15km per liter (40 liter tank). This is somewhat unusual for an earlier version Vtec engine's fuel economy versus the much more powerful DOHC Vtec. And the McPherson Strut upgrade at the front end seemed to have stiifen the ride too much while the stock rear multi- link wishbone really took its toll and gave in, so a modified tortion strut bar was fitted in to lift the suspension a little and give it more "movement" even with a loaded rear end...A/C still runs like new because of a newer system and compressor. Audio works well with the stock head unit (Fujitsu Ten) which is already obsolete, also surprisingly the only downside was the exterior appearance because the dents and loose bumper/ fenders were'nt really fixed. new upgrades: OEM/AEM Fuel Rail, Grounding Kit, Platinum Spark Plugs, Aestethics, Brake PAds, Intake Port, Vtec Bypass...

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

Pros: Durable chassis, still a good run for a 15 year old car...

Cons: kinda old, lots of problems with cooling, gears, AC and suspension...
sometimes hard-to-find parts are just fabricated and after-markets installed...

The car was a super great deal and that was why it sold before I could make up my mind. It was one of those “to good to be true “ deals. That is why I hesitated. Read More
