Honda Civic, Not As Dull As You Would Tend Tp Think. —

Performance: only 127 HP here, even with the Vtec Equipped D16Y8, but manages to keep it funn by putting all of those ponies north of 6 grand. still, dont expect an amazing 0-60. around a corner though, is a totally differnt story. i have yet to drive a car that is as easy as this one to drive hard and fast. in the VERY rare occurance that the front end actually does back out, it dose so in a very easy and controlled manner. i just wish mine was a 5 speed :P Build Quality: its a Honda. my window rattles every once in a blue moon. thats all. did i mention its 13 years old? Appearance: very conservative. it certanly isn't going to turn heads, but i almost like that. the interior is fairly well laid out and all be it very concervative, it some how manages to not be too boring. im also a very big fan of the very thin steering wheel. Cost of ownership: when i got i civic, i was expecting 30+MPG. not the story with the automatic EX model. expect closer to 23-25. not bad, but my dad's LT1 Firebird has it beat in that aspect. other wise though, its a honda. change the oil and replace the timing belt is about as intensive as maintnets gets. Fun Factor: supprisingly high. i really do enjoy my little honda on a good curvy road. also the fact that it redlines at 7grand, and actually runs up to it, is always a plus. over all: i like it better than i thought i would! yeah i get laughed at, but so what. i enjoy my little civic. i just wish it was a 5 speed model!

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

Pros: very revv happy, very reliable, comfortable, KILLER around a corner and a suprisingly decent sized trunk

Cons: not the gas mileage i was expecting, but partially due to lead foot.

Awesome Car — performance-not too bad, it accelerates ok for a 4 banger. braking-very good thanx to slotted rotors and srs pads. handling-it does ok i guess, for 12 year old springs and shocks. looks pretty good from the outside, couple dings here and there. cost of ownership-cheap. great on gas. i've changed the oil every 4000 miles with synthetic oil. fun factor- i love to drive it. it's so much fun to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great gas mlleage and low cost of ownership

Cons: not very powerful, not very fast

The Civic At A Glance — If you like using your windows this may not be the best car for you. The engine is also nothing to be excited about, 1.6 liters of lawnmower power! The highlight of owning a civic, however, is winter time antics such as snow rallying while on a........ um well u can figure that out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the stereo i put i it

Cons: self-explanitory, its a civic

A Long Lasting City Car That's Nice To Your Wallet. — No power on the highway! It rides great at 55 mph but doesn't like 70. It's a fun car with almost no maintenance and gets good gas mileage. I did have to replace the transmission though but I'm not sure why.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior still looks great after 12 years!

Cons: Highway traveling sucks, good city car.

Gfdsgfd — A good daily driver needs lots of money to be all around fast. It's only 115 hp for gods sake. High end coilovers a cage and a k series would do wonders. But it has potential. That's all for now.

Pros: it get 35 mpg

Cons: no ac

Awesome Car — Brakes good, good pricing, accelerates well, really good steering, fun to drive, good stereo, exterior is good, except for a few minor dents. Only 102xxx miles on it, so its got a long time to go, only big problem is when you turn, you hear a little squeaking/rattling noise. Its never had any problems so I guess you could say this car is really good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap, gas efficient

Cons: Nothing
