Gas Milage — The gas mileage is great. However going from a 425 hp V8 beast to this was quite a change. It has been modified with a full exhaust system, intake system, and 1" lowering springs. Lack of money prevents other needed mods.

Pros: EXCELLENT gas milage!  Great handling.

Cons: less than wanted power

Gotta Have The Vtec!! — I've owned this Civic from when it was bone stock. I invested about $4000-$5000 into performance and apparel. This little Honda does great on gas aswell as screem at 5800 RPM's when you want it to. The JDM B-series motor I reciently swapped runs beautifully and is fun to drive on a everyday bases.

Pros: Great Handling, Gas, Apparel, Fun

Cons: No powersteering ( N/A on Civic CX models)

Built For Reliability. But That's Where It Ends. — It's a starting-driver's car. Car is not fast on any level and the only upgrades available for the car are dominantly body-kits.

Pros: Superchargers welcome... parts cheap... easy to work on...

Cons: If you want to push the car, expect to be on your third engine (like me)

Call Me A Ricer But I Love It! — I bought the car completely stock and unmollested as a daily driver, and loved the fuel economy and go cart handling. I soon blew the clutch, then decided i might as well blow the engine as well, wchich led to the first build. Even with the interior, engine, suspension, and wheels redone, it was still a practical daily driver, but it was now loud, had more guts, and handled better. Now in the middle of its second build, it will loose all practicality, but should be the fastest, best handling, best looking car I have owned yet, but with the money I am dropping into it it should be. Not the quickest car I have owned by any means, but one of the best handling, this car is by far my favorite to drive

Pros: gas milage, handling, practicality

Cons: cheap interior, gutless stock motor

Its A Civic What Can I Say — Civics are great cars for what they are, they will never die, they last forever, but they are a economy car so you cant expect F1 performance

Pros: Reliable, Manual, pretty good on ice (front wheel drive), You can do your own
maintenance.  High resale value. Easy to drive.

Cons: Body is not extremely solid, lot of road noise, not a lot of power.

The Civic Si Is An Awesome Car! — I loved this car, kept it for 10 years until it was totaled in a crash (I walked away with barely a bump; the paramedics, cops, firemen, body shop-- all were impressed based on how fast the other car was going when she slammed into me). Several friends who rode in (or drove) my car liked it so much, they went out and bought Civics as well. They're well-built, well-designed cars, fun to drive for their category, handle well in snow and ice (I've never driven better than a Civic/Integra, in winter). They're comfortable, even for adults in the back seat on road trips. With the seats flipped down, they can carry quite a bit. Easy to find a good mechanic to maintain them. Good on gas. It's not too big, so finding a parking spot isn't too hard. Really, a very good practical car.

Pros: Reliable, fun to drive, handles great in snow & ice, cheap to run, looked good, fuel economical, safe

Cons: Cassette deck was placed in a weird spot, cup holder lid broke... really, the "cons" were minor. Insurance is higher than for other makes/models; get a car alarm/engine disable system installed (I was only broken into once, in 10+ years).

The Yellow Beast — the car is good on gas its prior salvage so its been modified from whoever had it when i bought it, it has a pretty loud exhaust which is kinda bad on the ppl who i live around part...lol

Pros: tinted windows, loud exhaust, it might be a 6spd cuz it was rebuilt and has a 6 gear knob

Cons: needs alot of stuff cuz of the prior salvage, easily reconized so if i catch a case im gone for sure, windows might be too dark, needs new paint job, rims and clutch

My Race Prepped Stealth Rice Mobile — I've had this car for over 4 years, I can't complain about it really. I've resprayed it Matte black and done a few modifications, Wheels, exhaust and a few engine mods. I've removed pretty much all the comfortable interior and rear seats to save as much weight as possible.

Pros: Honda reliability, good performance.

Cons: No rear seats (my doing), noisy (my doing)

Review By dkrenfer

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
