Great Little Car! — She's a bit old, but for a first car I love her. She gives me no problems and gets great gas mileage. I'm able to fit 5 people in her, which is necessary in college for road trips. I also love that she's manual-- it's the best way to learn!

Pros: I love the fuel economy and driving a small car!

Cons: After 150k miles and several owners, I think she's just tired and worn down. BUT, being a Honda, I have no real problems with her.

Good Car — Im in the Automotive business(32 years) and have been since I was in high school and have driven a lot of different vehicles so Im not a big Honda guy I think they are over rated but they are very reliable and will go forever if you take care of it just like anything in life but think that there is a lot of other cars out there that are just as reliable for a lot less money but I would recommend this vehicle to someone as a good car overall.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliability ie. engine,trans,

Cons: handling,road noise,

Honda Civic 2002 Es8 Cvt Model — My first ever Vehicle and I am not regretting it a single bit... The best in looks, fuel, performance and comfort. Once you maintain it in a timely manner, you can't complain. Wish our roads are a little bit better :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best in fuel economy + performance. Put in the sports gear and you'll feel like you're driving a 3.0 litre Engine

Cons: That they don't produce it anymore

Great And Reliable Car — Not a lot of power to this car. Small for my size. Slight scratches and small ding on the body. Slight burns on the interior but can be fixed easily. Other than this it is a great and reliable car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, saves gas

Cons: Not too much power

Honda — one thing would break after another and that was probably the worst part about keeping the car but it is great in gas, the car is really easy to drive also and its good for new drivers that are learning

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good on gas

Cons: breaks down easily

Good Car For Most People — Great car. Good looks, acceleration, comfort for the money. Original owner. Needs a CD player or satellite radio. Has been reliable on trips to Florida and Kansas. I like my Honda. This car can be fun to drive. Silverado is my best car.

Great, Relible Car. Especially As A First Car. — Great first car! 5 stars for that alone, haha. It has a 1.7L 4cyl engine- pretty fast...for a 1.7L 4 banger, lol. Only had 19,200 miles on her when I got her and only has 23,500 right now. It is very reliable, but I got from my grandmother, so it sat a while. So, it's probably getting an allignment very soon (in the next day or two: 1/9-10/11). It is also not fully loaded-only had a cassette player, no rear cup holders, etc. lmbo. Great gas mileage at 32 MPG or so (averaged: city & highway). Very comfortable cloth seats, good quality build; vinyl on the dash though. Factory radio hit hard, but I have a Kenwood KDC-MP445U in it now, and it has 2 12" MTX Audio Subs w/ a MTX Audio TNA-251 amp & a MTX Audio EBC- all which turn other people's heads. They're like "LOL RICE!..Holy S#!T, nevermind!" or "Lol grandma-OMG that Civic just made me spill my soda!" haha. Bangin sound system in an economy car- awesome. Hell of a fun for me, especially as my first car, haha.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, Good gas mileage, easy to work on, good handling, bumpin factory radio.

Cons: If you try do anything, people call you a ricer; if that matters to you.

A Great Commuter/first Car. — I love the turn radius and the small profile of the car. The acceleration sticks a little but otherwise its a quality car for the price. Decent car to drive around town and great for the daily commute to work.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good mileage saves you a lot of money

Cons: Acceleration is a little heavy and it doesn't look great.

The Ex-T seat was definitely uncomfortable but I appreciated the turbo. After test driving an Ex-L I will either expand my budget or look for an older model with leather, seemed to be worth it to me. Read More
