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.

Civic Duty — I like my car generally, im kinda over that tuner thing and and am looking for a 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD. Its a pretty solid car, havent done much repairs for 220k. Its kinda cheap to fix as well. Mine personally was pretty peppy for a 1.6L 4cyl. And the suspension design in it is amazing. Kinda small springs but the rears are really advanced for the cars price. I would highly recommend this car to any tuner or kid who needs or wants a first car, mine was a sedan. and it only let me down once when i got stuck in a foot of snow. But then again... it is a honda civic. :)

Pros: Peppy, Very Solid Car, Good On Gas, Looks for Price, Handles amazing in snow with the ABS and TCS package.

Cons: Cars are relatively expensive to buy, Everyone has one, Every honda WILL rust in the quarter panel after 3 years(1993-2000).

Pros: Low maintenance and fuel effiecient!

Cons: Not a sportcar... But can't be a racecar cheap on gas he... :)

Love My Car — i bought the car with just over 130K on it and it runs like a champ. it gets amazing gas mileage and handles pretty well. they're really easy to work on and they're good cars, although stock they're a little slow.

Pros: great gas mileage; been known to still run over 300K; easy to work on/repair

Cons: kind of slow.. little torque

Honda Really Is Amazing. — I love my car. There's little to complain about- except that trunk lights apparently don't exist with the lower-end models. Not to mention its got some insane road noise. Other than that though, its awesome. Its got a few bumps that I put into it, but she still loves me.

Pros: Drives well, little work, great gas mileage.

Cons: No trunk light, loud road noise.

Good Bang For Your Buck — Don't know what to say. Its a solid car for what you pay. Acceleration off the line is decent, good fuel mileage, they're easy to modify and to work on yourself. There's not alot to them as they are cheaper cars and thus don't usually include all the extras that come with higher-end cars.

Pros: Fun and easy to drive
Good gas milage
Easy to self-repair
Easy to modify

Cons: Poor acceleration on the highway
"Extras" generally not included
Many aftermarket parts not cheap due to high demand
