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.

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
