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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Does the job and more

Cons: Rides rougher than an Accord

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.

Brilliant Car — Good performance from the Civic Type R when you thrashed it to 8300rpm in each gear. Tidy handling, although did understeer in the wet. Engine feels as if it could sit at 8000rpm all day long. Brakes were very good also.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: VTEC Type R engine, good handling and brakes.

Cons: Bit plastic inside, rattles a bit after a few years

Honda Civic Type-r Ep3 — EP3 Civic Type R~ hm.. my first real V-TEC Honda. I used to be a tubo man, after driven the EP3. I can feel the fun part of the V-TEC and fall in love with Hondas. Just love the screaming from the engine when high revs...!

Weak Piece Of Garbage. — Garbage..... underpowered, manufacturer defect prone, repair upon repair all outside of warranty. Performance is best described by the word garbage. 1.7 whopping liters of single cam non v-tec power, overworked to put this pile of metal in motion. Honda made one of their stupidest decisions by equipping this car with a single cam non v-tec motor is a mistake.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you happen to receive it as a hand me down.  Gas saver.

Cons: Known manufacturer defects not covered by warranty or deemed recalls.

The car was a super great deal and that was why it sold before I could make up my mind. It was one of those “to good to be true “ deals. That is why I hesitated. Read More
