    Better Than I Imagined —

    I bought the car used a couple of years ago with 90k miles on it. I've always liked Honda, so I was pretty dead set on this car when I saw it in the carlot, especially since it was a 5 speed. The only problem it had when I bought it was a cracked manifold, which made it sound like a lawn mower, but I knew once I put a new one in all would be well, and so far it has. If you see how I drive this car, you'd think it would have more problems than it does =P 15k miles later, I'm still impressed when I drive it. The only gripe I ever really had with the car is that it's a 5 speed, yet the instrument panel doesn't have a tachometer. Why the hell would you build a car with a manual transmission and not include a tach? That's like, buying a Frappuccino from Starbucks and not getting the cup to put it in. I ended up buying an aftermarket tach and slapped it on the pillar, so now the car looks a bit jankey on the inside, but at least I can see my RPMs now =P

    Pros: 30+ mpg, Nice acceleration, Very reliable

    Cons: Very basic interior features (no electric anything, no tach), the height of the car kind of
    makes it look like a bubble

    Average Car With An Above Average Engine. — This car has some power, but not enough to go bragging about. It looks decent if you clean up the body and keep silly stuff off of it. Other than that its average.

    Pros: Above average power, looks decent.

    Cons: Not to far above average power, still average car.

    Don't Laugh I Own It — This is my current vehicle and the first one I have ever had a chance to purchase with cash. I own it, it runs just fine, and gets me where I want to go. Plus I can always do some engine work later on to bring the performance up.

    Pros: It runs and I own it.  It also has a sunroof.

    Cons: Not as good as a truck in the snow.

    Simple, Practical Daily Driver, Gets Great Gas Mileage —

    Overall impression, I'm pretty much impressed with the car. I'm a huge fan of Honda and this is one of my favorite model of all. Handling is not that great when the car is fully stock, but since I have upgraded the suspension (redo the whole thing), it handles nice and firm now. Acceleration, you might not want to expect a lot from the stock 1.6l SOHC engine. But again, this is a civic, there are tons of possibilities on this car, swap out the engine with Civic Si or Integra GSR and you'll be amazed how much powerful this car can be. Braking is just okay, make sure you replace the pads on rotors as it's probably worn out for the age. Appearance is not that bad at all, I never find my car looks outdated at all, Honda designed their cars to last pretty long. I'd recommend this car for people in the market for used car. Price is not so bad, expect to pay around 4-5k for decent condition ones. Don't forget to change the timing belts, perform all the recommended maintenance because most parts are toasted already. Also, I'd recommend adding security device on this car, this is the most stolen car in the US, park carefully!

    Pros: - 30+ mpg
    - Looks appealing
    - Tons of possibilities
    - Easy to find parts
    - Cheap to maintain

    Cons: - Slow
    - Most stolen car
    - Hard to find decent condition civics
    - Too many ricer civics out there

    Strong Hatch — After my civic LX was totaled, I needed a car fast. I didn't want another car payment - so I bought this hatch with 80,000 miles on it, now with 180,000. Very little complaints, if any. Your basic brake job, tune up and the car keeps going!

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

    Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Handles Great, Gas Efficient, Low Cost Maint.

    Cons: Limited rear seating, Limited Cargo Space

    A Fun Little Econobox: 99' Honda Ej8 (civic Coupe Ex) — Most of you Honda owners probably know if you do your routine maintenance judiciously, they can last you 150k-250k miles. The build quality is great, the engine runs strong even after 100k miles and you barely notice that it's a >15yo car at times. It handles quite well for its price, and the V-Tech engine is fairly powerful for such a small displacement. With a 1.6 litre Inline-4 engine producing 127/6600 HP and 107/5500 TQ, howling it's 2513-lb curb weight isn't too much trouble. However the interior can wear out if you're under California sun, especially the sun visors and the roof panels; dirt can trickle down when you bump into them. Gas mileage is excellent (25-30mpg). With its great reliability, the Civic EX Coupe is one of the most fun econobox you can purchase used for <$5k; but then of course, careful screening (CarFax, autocheck, maintenance records etc) and bringing a mechanic friend when you do decide to shop for a used Civic is needed to prevent getting poorly maintained ones.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage (25-30mpg), excellent reliability, great V-Tech engine, great handling for what it's worth, semi-practical, sporty coupe looks

    Cons: Smaller size, crappy cup holders, not a family car

    Sporty, Fun, Reliable, Moddable, Definitely A Keeper —

    The 1999 and 2000 Civics are the best. 1998 and earlier don’t have motorized fan vents and no OBD2B connector. Civics after the 2000 year do not have a fully independent suspension like the 1992-2000 Civics. So I love my 1999 Civic DX 4 speed automatic. My mother got it for me and at first I didn’t like it at all compared to a 2006 Forester, but it was my first car and over time I grew to like it after I discovered modding. It is taffeta white with black trim. Lots of black trim, with a small black “POLICE INTERCEPTOR” below the left tail lights. I first didn’t like the understeer, so, I installed a 19mm rear sway bar and that helped incredibly. Now the car is on rails around corners. Helped further by the best all season tires I could buy (205/50/R16 Continental DWS). The road feel is amazing with perfect road feedback from the hydraulic steering. Next, I didn’t like the headlights, too dim. So, I put in 55 watt 5000K (White output) HIDs. Totally awesome. I also put in 35 watt HIDs for the reverse lights so I can well when backing out of weird areas. Also a bright 16 LED dome light and underseat/trunk CCFL tubes for illumination. The engine made a chattering noise at certain RPMs when cold, so I switched the oil from 5w30 to 10w30 and then the chatter went away and oil consumption is near zero. I then installed a complete train horn system under the hood, and a genuine train bell under the driver’s side rear bumper and a high output alternator and huge inverter so I can power big appliances with my car. I am very happy that the components under the hood are not tightly packed like newer cars. I was able to add a complete train horn system including the air compressor, 2 gallon air tank and the horns all under the hood and inside the front bumper (Shocker train horns). There were even pre-drilled holes on the sides of the rails just inside the hood to knit all my zip ties through to secure the components! Awesome. The car now has 231,000 miles on it with an automatic. I change all fluids regularly including the brakes, PS, tranny, engine oil and coolant to ensure no unnecessary wear or corrosion occurs. Very cheap and easy to do by myself on this car. The only wear on the car are the Rear Trailing Arm bushings, but they aren't completely worn out yet. It'll cost about $340 to get the bushing replaced. Use 52385-SR3-003. Also the ignition switch is showing signs of wear but that part is only about $40 and easy to do myself. Performance; Phenomenal stability and great cornering abilities. In a straight line; not fast. Helps that I can put the transmission in “2nd” and it will stay in 2nd all the way until 70MPH at around 7000RPM! So it isn't entirely gutless. The transmission does lockup so you can get fuel economy on the highway. So it has good performance from 30-38MPH (top of 1st gear) and 50MPH-70MPH (top of 2nd gear). In the summer you can get around 32MPG in mixed conditions and 36MPG on the highway at 60MPH. In the winter, about 29MPG mixed, 32MPG highway. As good or better than my Mother's 2012 Elantra with a limited torsion beam rear suspension. Comfort; The front seat required a beaded seat cover to be comfortable, but after that it is great. Very little rattles, doesn't complain when I abuse it. Stock brakes are good and easy to replace yourself. Don't forget to replace the timing belt regularly because if it slips, the engine may be destroyed. I plan on keeping this car forever, but if it ever breaks I'll probably get an AWD plug-in hybrid.

    Pros: Sporty, drive on rails around corners
    Stable
    Low maintenance
    Agile

    Cons: Not the safest car
    Not the fastest car
    Not the highest MPG car
    Front seats need a beaded seat cover to be comfortable.

    Civic: Good Decision. — The front seats were changed to RSX seats. The fit and finish was great considering its entry-level status. Very cheap cost of ownership. The driving fun-factor was, while stock, not very fun. But with tires, KONI suspension, and a host of other modifications, it became a really fun car to drive.

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

    Pros: It was great car.  That's it, that's all.

    Cons: It needed an engine swap!  Really, it needed a Type-R.  The steering feel/ratio could have been better, a lot better!
