Great Little Car — I loved this little car. We named it Stanley, and he was my first car. As a delivery driver in a hilly area, the maneuverability this car had was very useful, and it still had enough power to handle the incline on the roads going up the ridge.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car was extremely reliable, great on gas, and great for long trips.

Cons: It had little space for carrying things, and was hard to use when I was moving.

Great Value For The Money — I really liked this civic a lot. I had it for over 10 years and it was reliable and ran well even after 200,000 miles. It was a great vehicle for commuting or for a small family. It really served me well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage. Great reliability.

Cons: Sometimes felt like there wasn't enough power with 4 passengers in the car. Ride is a little bumpy.

Great Little Car For The Money — Car is built real solid and well, I was not a huge fan of Honda cars, but came across a deal I could not refuse and bought it, I started being skeptical but all that went away after 3 months then I really started to like it, I can honestly say now I wouldn't mind buying another Honda Civic and probably will have one to replace this one when I am done with it. I really like the simplicity and how well it has held up and the repairs have not been to bad would recomend the same car to anyone thinking of buying.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car is great on gas, power is a bit low but adequate for what it is, has sufficient amount of room, comfortable and handles well, it is a real joy to drive everyday

Cons: power is a bit lower than I would like, ac could be better on hot days

Perfect Commuting Car — Great, reliable vehicle. Great fuel economy and very inexpensive maintenance costs. I wouldn't purchase any other vehicle. Perfect for commuting. The car is small so not the best choice for a family. Handles great, however, my 97 does lack power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel economy. Very inexpensive maintenance costs compared to other vehicles.

Cons: Small

Great Car For College Kid — Little Honda has done it again!!! First and only Honda car I had. I loved it. It was a zipper!! In and out of traffic it handled the road well. Quick, respnsive and FUN!!!. Only issue I had with it was the clutch went out and destroyed the passenger axle. After that the car did anything I asked besides off road driving. Sporty little car!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, great handling, great fuel economy.

Cons: Not a lot of room for passengers. When something breaks...it's broke and expensive to fix

My Horrible Car That I'm Stuck With — This has got to be the worst car ever. I hope one day i can drive this car off of a cliff and never have to deal with it's horrible smell and noise ever again. I only bought the car to save gas.

Pros: nothing

Cons: everything

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Lack of engine power

Good On Gas, Reliable, Good For A Racing Project! — This car comes with a D16 Engine which is non VTECH, very slow, but really good on gas, does not have electric windows, but is a good car i like it. It could be a really good project to put in a B18 engine it could become really fast becasue the body is really light.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good on Gas.

Cons: Not very comfortable.
