1990 civic hatch

Vehicle: 1990 Honda Civic 2dr Hatchback

LOVE this car!! ive had it for 4 years, and have loved every bit of it. this has been a great car for me, ive put 80k on it, and it now has 270xxx on it. i put the 5 speed trans in it, rear disc brakes, si seats, hx gold wheels, and tons of other little stuff here and there. over all this is a great little car, and is more fun to drive than you would think for 70 hp.

Great car but made for short people and I'm a tall person. Six foot 1.75 inch people like me really lack in the leg room when driving but it is a nice car. Like the look of the next generation civic more though.

Had this car for 13 years. Never sat on the side of the road. Start up everyday in Minnesota winter. No major problems. Just purchased a new 2002 civic coupe. Another 13 years? Sure hope so...

Today is a sad day....

Vehicle: 1990 Honda Civic 2dr Hatchback

I have been driving my civic since it was brand new on the dealers lot 13years ago. It has been the best and most reliable car I've ever owned. I see new vehicles on the side of the road with car trouble all the time and my civic drives on. Excellent in all weather conditions including below zero temps.. she starts up every morning and keeps going and going. Today I sold my beautiful civic for $1700 in order to upgrade to a 4door. I sure hope my new 4door CRV can give me 13 years..




Wonderful little car

My husband and I bought our Honda Civic brand new in 1990 when our kids were small. It was great to drive around town and I loved the way that I could squeeze into small spaces. We took trips from Georgia to Ohio in it and never had no problems. We have had to have minor repairs on the car, but nothing real serious. Even though the inside of the car doesn't look so good anymore, it stills runs great. My husband drives it to work as it is so good on gas mileage. My daughter which is now 16 years old would love to have and drive it, but unfortunately she does not know how to drive a stick shift yet. Who knows, she may get it when she learns.




Honda has a life long

I bought my little Honda almost exactly a year ago and I was very impressed, both with its performance and the rock solid build quality. The owner before me installed a newer stronger motor before they traded it into the dealership. I still have the stock 4 spd manual and the car can give MANY cars a BIG surprise. I have showed many cars with V8's and Powerful V6's what these Hondas are truly made of. The build quality is flawless and I trust that my Honda will never leave me stranded.
