Good For Daily Driver — If your looking to drive something to work and back this is it. Would recommend, I have 195k on the clock and still running strong. Maintenance is very minimum and it averages 34-35mpg on highway and around 30 in the city if you keep it below 70mph.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very Fuel efficient and low maintenance

Cons: No power

Great Older Sedan — This was the first car I drove and I have a lot of respect for it. In the time I've been driving it, I've only done the regular scheduled maintenance and replaced the front bushings (the rubber begins to crack as it gets older, so no surprises there.) It's a very small engine with decent torque, but you aren't going to race anyone besides other old sedans. My biggest concern is that there isn't much weight on the front end, so it's been a fairly regular occurrence of spinning the front drive wheels when the road is wet or loose rock.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, great gas mileage, no breakdowns

Cons: Low power engine, minimal dash and features, road noise is an irritant

Little Blue Civic — Great Overall car to drive. Fun, sporty, reliable. Not quite big enough now that we are a family of five with a dog as well. Really need to up grade to a mini van as soon as it is possible.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's reliability

Cons: It's size

Great Little Car — My wife calls it "zippy" but I don't think it's that fast. A little noisy at highway speeds but awesome gas mileage. I've gotten over 40MPG on the highway. Maintenance has been oil changes and tires. It's comfortable but a little cramped for long trips with a full passenger load. Seats 5 but 4 is really max if you are on any kind of a long trip. We are approaching 150,000 miles with no problems. It is fun to drive, handles very well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great gas mileage, handles very well.

Cons: Not very quiet at highway speed, a little cramped for the back seat riders.

Great Car. — Runs well no problems with anything. Though the steering wheel forces me into a weird position to cover the brakes due to my height (6'0"). I would recommend this car to anyone except for the very tall. This could be fixed with aftermarket seats.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything else

Cons: Seat height/brake pedal position.

Awsome! — Acceleration sucks, Get a K swap. Handles well after you make a few upgrades. Cheap, fun to drive, brakes could use an upgrade should be all around disc brakes. In my opinion ditch the single cam as soon as you can lol

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

Pros: ITs MINE

Cons: Haters hating

Good Car — Honda Civic 2004 1.6 SE (Petrol) Performance is good, handling OK but slightly too much body roll in corners. Build quality is top notch. Exterior appearance a bit dull, interior comfortable and well made. Fuel economy 34mpg about town driving. A good car all round.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth and refined

Cons: None
