    Great If You Want To Try And Save Money On Gas And Maintenance — Very dependable, some radiator and ignition issues. Not a bad car, but I think it's not a smooth body style and highway driving seems a little scary in such a small car because it bounces constantly! AWESOME gas mileage! Interior appearance is lacking for sure, but at least the seats are comfortable, I owned the first year of this generation brand new as well and it was a 2 door.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel effeciency is all here!

    Cons: Limited power and leg room for peopel over 6' (me)

    My First Car — Great Car but i ran it into the ground. I recently replaced 2 bushings in the front suspension and i replace all of the brake pads. That was about 1 grand and it also needs either a repair or an all together new transmission. If i get it fixed i will probably hunt around for a rebuilt transmission for cheap. However, what is probably going to happen is im going to sell it soon and my dad may or my not give me his VW Passat.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good car, Very reliable if you take care of it.

    Cons: 5 speed manual doesn't hold up too well for someone who pushes the car to the limit.

    Civic Dx '02 — acceleration in average, good braking, great handling despite too soft shocks, great build quality, very reliable, average interior and exterior styling, easy maintenance, car pretty fun to drive but would need a bit more torque, like 130 lb/ft instead of 110 lb/ft, but great economic car for a smalle family, enough comfortable, with Honda's legendary reliability :)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable, engine sound, fuel efficient...

    Cons: little power

    It Got Totalled — Performance - Stock with blue lights and a 5spd manual transmission and it was slow. Build quality - It is a Honda so it was reliable. Appearance - It was stock. Cost of Ownership - gas was cheap ($10 to fill full tank back then) Fun Factor - it was a stick shift and I drove it like I stole it.

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

    Pros: It was fun until it got totalled

    Cons: It got totalled

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: If you want reliability, looks and performance for a cheap price...choose Honda

    Cons: If you hate Honda, stay away from this car

    My Honda — This is the best car ever! Well almost, its not quite as good as my future TL typpe-s. But as far as a college car, its great. I get about 43 highway and 34 city. If i do both i get between 34 and 40. One time this summer i got 50! It has cost me almost nothing in service, i had to replace one compnent. thats it! i will never sell this car. It may be slow now but when i get a k20 and a gt30 turbo this will be an extremely fast car!

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Its slow

    My Civic — Slow starting out in first gear, but I can beat some V6's off the line. Great handling. You can't go wrong with getting 35-45 mpg depending on where you drive. Have had to bring it in once to get the struts fixed. Custom exhaust from headers back and an AEM v2 air intake on it help with mileage and give it a little bit more HP.

    Pros: Good body style. Comfortable interior. Looks small but is quite roomy inside. Tall people can actually sit in the back. 5-speed Manual  is the way to go.

    Cons: A little noisy on the highway but that's partially my fault. They didn't build them to be soundproof.

    Dependable Stylish Civic — This is a wonder vehicle. It has served me well over the years. It still gets great gas milage (32-36 mpg) after 6 years. Only a few blemishes in the paint from rock chips over time. I have only had to complete the normal maintance schedule on it. Besides new tires and a battery. The only downside is it is not a family car. With two children now it is not feasible for two children in car seats. In the process of search for a new vehcile for this reason. However I still plan to keep the civic because of its realiabilty.

    Pros: dependable, good gas milage

    Cons: Excellenty for someone single, not for someone with children
