1990 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this little car in February of 2004, with only 98,000 miles on it! Only fix needed was a new muffler, surprisingly. This car is very warm in the winter (inside heats up fast!) and ice cold a/c in the summer. Excellent fuel economy! I get very close to 35-mpg on highway and easily 30mpg in city! The advantages are super easy to park, gas mileage and most of all, bullet-proof, long-lasting engines. Disadvantages are they say the smaller the car, the un-safer you are! True, but with the excellent reputations these cars have, I'll take the risk and keep her until the wheels fall off! I highly recommended this cute car for anyone seeking reliability and who is on a budget.


Best Features

Engine durability, quiet little motor, (will easily get to 400,000) fun-to- drive 5 speed, lots of head room and leg room, plenty of trunk space, interior layout, superior reputations, and for a small car, she handles very well!


Worst Features

Body rusts too easily, add more horsepower, (1.5L engines are a little slow)also, and add some cupholders. Advantages will always outweigh the suggested improvements!! What do you expect, it's a Honda!

Review

I've owned my Civic for 2 and 1/2 years and the only thing I've replaced on it were tires and a new radidtor hose! A zippy ride, due to the 5- speed manual. Very fun to drive, excellent handling and very dependable. Never left me stranded. Only routine maintenance required. (Oil changes, plugs, batteries,etc.). Keep your fluids changed regularly and it'll run forever. Rock solid car! Only 115,000 miles on her. Plenty of life left. I'll drive her to 300,000!!


Best Features

Excellent gas mileage, peppy little 5-speed, strong a/c and keeps me very warm in winter! I also love the neat tail light design. Comfy, plush seating. Reliability and interior is quiet. Not a single squeak or rattle.


Worst Features

Interior is a little tight. Front and rear wheel wells rusts too easily. Center console and cuholders, this car needs! No major improvements.

Review

I absolutely love this car. Anyone who
complains about the 92bhp obviously
either doesnt know how to shift
correctly, or is using an auto tranny
(ewwwwww). The handling in this car
cannot be beat, and it is 13.5 years
old! My dad bought this car july 1990
with 11 miles on it (probably a test
drive and driving it onto the lot).
Now it has 238,000+ miles, and almost
no problems at all! around 180,000
miles, the exhaust had to be replaced
due to rust, and at about 220,000 miles
the tranny had to be rebuilt. Other
than that, no problems. was given to me
6months ago for my 16th b-day.


Best Features

reliability, handling, gas mileage, fun to drive factor, did i mention relability? and of course... if u complain about power, there are many things u can upgrade... it is a civic after all.


Worst Features

bigger stock rims, and better stereo (even tho i now have an awesome stereo in mine ;)
