1998 Honda Civic LXReview

Honda Civic Lx 4 Door — This car is a good daily driver if your looking for one. You can leave it alone and enjoy it as is, or if you want there are a vast array of mods that can be had from eBay or your local parts store. Honda made a large number of these models, and the most common problem to watch out for is the oil pump. The pump would tend to go bad and ruin the motor. If the driver didn't know the pump was bad there may be some damage to motors leading to an untimely and early death (ie less than 200k miles which Hondas tend to bypass easily if taken care of). Make sure you ask for the service history or lots of questions about what was fixed and what wasn't - or save yourself some stress and buy something newer or older th

Pros: Seats five, awesome trunk space, 30+MPG

Cons: Low power, many of these model civics had bad oil pumps from the factory that went bad and ruined the motors.  Buyer Beware.
