    I Give It A Nine Out Of Ten. — This car gets 38 MPG high way with a cold air intake. Acceleration is great, no major repairs needed, and it is fun to drive. Cost of owner ship is very low, and the overall appearance is not bad. I love this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 38 MPG

    Cons: Transmission a little rough.

    Buy A Honda!!! — loved the car never broke down was great on gas..buy an air intake it makes it sound better...easy to install anything on it almost everything is bolt on...its even relitively easy to rip apart the interior for wiring amps and lights.

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

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: None

    One Of The Best Driving Compact Cars Of Its Time, Will Last For Decades — Efficient, cheap, reliable, durable, spacious for its size, and drives better than most others in its class. This is an economy car, and performs as such, but by no means is it bad. Forego the automatic transmission at all costs.

    Pros: Cheap, reliable, very good compact car

    Cons: Performance

    Never Brakes Down — quality - doesn't need spare parts, very solidly built, original AC still working on a car 11 years old. performance is ok if you rev it high, however better or shorter gear ratios would benefit a lot. Of course, then MPG would fail.

    Pros: reliability

    Cons: too long gear ratios

    98 Civic Ex D16y8 Sedan — its nice. 1.6 liter sohc vtec inline four. not that fast but not too slow. i've got a cold air intake, short shifter, tach with shift light, brakes are good, drums in back:( needs rear sway bar and bigger front one. 200k miles almost. would handle good with new shocks and sway bars, maybe adjustable coilovers. and better tires. reliable, economical, 40mpg easy. cheap plastic. no low end torque! sounds good and goes good at above 4500. ten gallon gas tank. i had to replace head gasket, thermostat, fan switch, radiator,and expansion tank.

    Pros: very nice

    Cons: not much.

    Honda — I like the amount of storage it had and appreciated it more after getting my toyota (very little storage room)... handled well, very easy to maintain with no major problems, 32-36 mpg, style is ok, nice first car that withstood quite a bit... and continues to :)

    Pros: Good gas milage

    Cons: Appearance

    Great First Car — It's not flashy, it's not powerful, and it's not even that great-looking, but it's fun to drive, great on gas (35 hwy on average) and still running fine at 160,000 miles. The best part - it'll probably last me another 5-8 years, and I'm in no hurry to get rid of it. Really, the only thing I don't like about my Civic is the gear ratios: 75 mph has my little 4-banger begging for a 6th gear that isn't there.

    Pros: build quality, gas mileage

    Cons: gear ratios
