6th Gen Ej9 Civic Is — Proud owner of a ´97 CGM EJ9 iS Shortshift. EJ9 means it was an EDM-spec car powered by Hondas D14A4-engine. Performance: 1.4 @ 90hk ment that my car was not a sports car nor was it a snail. My engine loved revs over 4500. In that zone it went like a bullet. Build Quality: Superb Honda Quality. No rattling noices. Everything just works. Apperance: 6th Gen Civics has a very good apperance. They just looks good! Cost of Ownership: Because the Civic is very popular with the young people its insurance is a bit high. On the contrary serviceing is cheap, because it never breaks down. I just changed my frond brake pads under a five year long ownership... the 1.5 VTEC engine is more economical than the 1.4 but its down to 0.5 liter in AVG. mine got me about 550 km on 40 liter of gas. Fun Factor: The Civic is a very stable yet entertaing car to drive... quite sporty almost firm handling. Cut corner like a GO-KART. I can recomend you a 6th Gen CIvic 100%

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks good, Famous Honda Quality, Quite Sporty (with right engine)

Cons: Of course none

Like It, Dont Love It. — This is a nice car for a student or starting off family. It handles pretty well, but not a 'racer' at all... It gets great gas mileage but okay if you are a heavy lead foot driver. Small interior and not for a big family.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas Sipper

Cons: If you're tall
