    Reliable And Great On Gas — With the gas prices on the incline this is a perfect vehcile for anybody that wants to save money on gas but yet you dont want to buy a scooter. Hondas are inexpensive to insure so you will save all around!

    Pros: Only a 2 Owner Vehicle, always maintained!

    Cons: The year, it is a 14 year old car, however it is a Honda!

    Good Car Tons Of Potentail — haven't had any major done just routine maintenance. i only paid 4 ,000 for the car and insurance is cheap.so i don't have many complaints. i think this car is a blast to drive. it has a lot potential if you are willing to invest the money into it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I like what is available in the aftermarket. great gas mileage.

    Cons: with the non-vtec motor it feels under powered at time

    Honda Approved — Well if you buy the car completely stock the performance is like that of a Toyota Prius. Performance will most definitely improve the more it is built up. The car does get loud at higher MPH's thats about it. Overall this car is pretty fun to drive and i would recommend it for a beginner tuner.

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

    Pros: I love the fact that it is so low to the ground and is extremely compact. but mainly the fact that everything is so simple and basic.

    Cons: I hate that the stock performance is so bad..

    Beast Around Corners — This car is a beast around corners, but lacks performance as its running a little sohc vtec 1.3 motor. Its currently sitting on D2 adjustables and has front and rear struts. Fun to take it on windy roads like Scenic Drive.

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

    Pros: Handling, Conering

    Cons: Lack of power

    The Bottom-line Is You Get What You Pay For With Any Model Civics But They're Great Daily Drivers. — Just an overall great car that you dont see that much. Has okay performance but it is nothing special to begin with. Only costs about 23 bucks to fill even after "spirited" driving and cost of maintenance is incredibly cheap so a fantastic car in general. The fun factor with this car isnt very high to be honest. Unless you put a little work into it, it will only be a commuter with less than 140 horses.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a different looking compact and its something different.

    Cons: Tuners tend to ruin them so look for a nice model that isnt destroyed by someone.

    Excellent First Car — I loved this car. Was very reliable, great at gas, decent hp, good clutch, smooth gears. Stock speakers were excellent. Great handling. Perfect commuting car, definitely a good kick-it car. The body is decent, its not beautiful nor ugly. The parts quality however is very low. Comfortable, everything works. Just a very reliable, money saving, perfect car.

    Pros: Gas saver, good handling, reliable

    Cons: Horsepower

    Idk — Needs some repairs and a nice new engine would be nice :) lol but I love the car, I put it through hell and yet it still keeps running. It accelaretes pretty well for an economically driven car but the rating of the car depends on the preference of the driver.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the gas it saves and how low maintanance it is

    Cons: its not a car for someone who wants an adrenaline rush unless you have the money for it

    Fun And Reliable But Not For A Performance Snob — 4-cylinder engine leaves some performance to be desired but the car is sturdy and reliable. the sedan is small and anyone over 6 feet tall will feel very cramped and find it difficult to enter the car... the exterior styling is great however the interior feels a bit cheap with plastic dash and door trim.. overall the car feels more akin to a go-cart than a sedan but it will get the job done.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable efficient fun

    Cons: small dated underpowered
