1990 Honda Civic CRX Hatchback Si 2dr Coupe


Review

This was my first car. It had great performance and great gas mileage. One of the top 5 Honda's ever built.


Favorite Features

There is just something about having only 2 seats. I loved the rear hatch.


Suggested Improvements

It would have been nice to have had the 1.6 DOHC motor that my 99 Si had.

1990 Honda Civic CRX Hatchback Si 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my 90 CRX Si new in Feb of 90 and I have never regretted it. I have thought about purchasing a newer car but because it's such a reliable car and runs beautifully, it's hard to justify needing another vehicle, new or otherwise. And it looks good, especially in red with the black trim. After waxing, it looks like a shiny lady bug. The engine has 265,000 miles and is as smooth and quiet as ever. Regular valve adjustment are a good way to maintain this. But it's a very well built car - built to last. I have saved THOUSANDS because I bought this car and not the Ford Escort GT I was also considering-don't ask me why. Honda is an Engine company that happens to build cars...


Favorite Features

Smooth engine, Gearbox like butter, Good low slung supportive seats, Excellent driving position and visibility


Suggested Improvements

Better sunroof design. Passive restraint belt-bad idea.

1990 Honda Civic CRX Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

The reliabilty of this car has stood out to me the most. I have had so many little problems with it, and its made it out of them jsut fine. It currently has 220,000 miles. It still runs strong. It's very fast, and gets great fuel economy. Easy to shift, and get parts for. It's cheap to fix, and cheap to fill up. Car has overheated a few times, and once overheated on my way to detroit. A 4 hour trip for me. I got about an hour away from home, and it shot up to H, and I still kept driving the 3 other hours. Made it there, and back without any hesitations. But I did do 110, on the way home, and it did start to rattle, so when I got home, it went in the paper. Sold for $800 in the first week.


Favorite Features

The small, yet fast engine.


Suggested Improvements

The exterior Durability,

Review

This car is known as old reliable. This car only require oil and gas. It avg about 36 mpg that is better than most vehicles today.

Car is very small can get into tight places. This car is very small but has a lot of leg room, very fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

A little loud on the hwy, the only other bad thing is that honda has not made a new one.
