    My 2nd Car And I Am Keeping It — This one was my clean titled car that I purchased out the door for 7,200 back in 2003. This was also my first manual car and I started to do those modification things on it. It had a "mini me" swap an EX head on a non V-tec bottom end which was also ported an polished, etc and blah blah. I got tired of it and wanted more power so I opted with a JDM B16A swap, head ported and combustion chambers cleaned and blah blah. It definitely had enough power to compete against most 4 cylinder cars until 2005 so not too bad. Build quality? It was great but with age of coarse things break after almost 10 years in general it was Great Quality. Appearance, back in the day I loved it because it holds sentimental value of my first Honda Civic. Gas when stock was 24mpg. when mini me it was 25.5mpg. And now with B16A it is 24.5mpg so not too bad with my driving cost of ownership, again it is an older car so it is hard to pin point yet extremely cheap. Fun Factor? I like this car alot.

    Pros: I can still find parts, fun to drive, does everything for me

    Cons: negatives it is 11 years old and it does show its wear.

    Smooth Car — it's spacious from inside, the interior is very beautiful and it always smells nice. it doesn't take too much gas plus it doesnt use much of it anyways. so in short it's not that expensive and economic. it's too much fun to drive that i usually create any excuse to drive it... u can feel it gliding on the roads. plus honda is very well known for its strong build and soft smooth gliding. u could convert it into a sports speeding car if u want.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    Shea's '98 Civic — Well, the car was sold to me as a lemon. I found out, of course, after I drove it off the lot. I bought it for 17k with 30,000 miles on it. Which was a rip off b/c a month later I bought a 2000 Civic coupe with cd player and remote entry for the same price! After I took it to a mechanic, found it had over $2,500 worth of damage done to it. 3 years after purchasing this car is when the clutch kit finally gave up on me. I was surprised it lasted that long! I have only had to keep up with regular maintenance on this car. So, the rumors about Honda's are definitely true! Performance, not really a performance car. Just a 1.6L. Its GREAT on gas. At $2.71 a gallon right now, I just filled up my tank on $20. :D Its been a great car to me and has everything I need...for now. :)

    Pros: Honda reliability and great gas mileage!

    Cons: Outside apprearance is a little rough right now, lol.

    Ok.... — I like my car its just that the transmission is messed up and my dad doesnt believe me. All i really care about is that it gets me from here to there and thats all i want. It is WAY better than my old car!! That is definitly for sure

    Pros: It drives me places and gas isn't so high on it.

    Cons: The transmission!!

    Good Economical Car! — It can be souped up in nearly a million ways! The car is extremely fun to drive, and is much better a Toyota Camry, or a Corolla. Also very good on gas! Several mods can be added to the car which will make the car look amazing. Not many cars can be modded as this one!

    Pros: Looks decent!

    Cons: Too slow!

    Urban Perfection — This car has realy good road behaviour. Sticks to the road BUT can't go over 200 kmh :( For a 1.4 stock engine with 90 Bhp I could say it's pretty quick on the start and it could "punish" cars with bigger engines. It's a great car for the city. Easy to manuver and it has realatively low gas consumption. Suspention is a little bit hard , but you get used to it realy fast. Realy fun to drive.

    Pros: Low gas consumption , design , performance , stability etc..........

    Cons: It will never break down so it's forever yours to enjoy !

    It's Not A Rice Burner, Maybe A Rice Cooker? — To start its got the fine Honda engineering that Should go into all premium automobiles. It's never let me down, I've only had to do the basics that you would with any other car but without any major problems. Bought it with 88k and now I got about 110k and still rolling strong. Not quite the horsepower of todays cars but how many of todays cars get over 35mpg in traffic day in and out? F.ast O.nly R.olling D.ownhill C.onstantly H.aving E.very V.ehicle R.ecalled O.ver L.ousy E.ngineering T.echniques D.oes O.nly D.rive G.randma E.verywhere

    Pros: I get 35+mpg with over 90hp :o)  and its not broke like your american pile

    Cons: you can time the 1/4 mile with a sundial and its not meant for offroad use

    Civic — Although it doesn't score the best in performance and appearance, it's a very reliable car that I know will start every morning. It more than adequately serves its purpose as a cheap to own and drive car. It is light on the wallet at rare visits to the parts store as well as the gas pump. Though it does lack the performance I'm used to from my prior high horsepower cars, it'll still hug a turn like the best of them adding a little excitement to the drive.

    Pros: everything. Great gas mileage, smooth ride, full featured.

    Cons: if you're looking for power, you'll have to do some upgrades.

    This Is A Good Car For Cheap Gas — This is a straight commuter car used to get to and from work, it gets good mileage, but it isnt as fast as everyone says. The ownership costs are low, if something breaks it is pretty cheap to fix. The car is mostly fun to drive, no power steering, no A/C so it sucks on hot days.

    Pros: Great gas mileage, 35MPG for a 10 year old car, surprizingly zippy and quick

    Cons: it is a honda civic, it isnt fast or furious and i don't know why everyone says they are.
