1990 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


This car was exactly what I expected, and more. My disappointment lies only with the engine. It's 92HP engine makes me hesitate before passing (the car is very responsive, but weak). The car has great handling, and seats very the front passengers very well. Other than the engine, however, I have to complain about the height. The car sits so low that not only his an interesting experience getting out of the car, but it tends to scrape across the bottom when traveling over speed bumps. Don't get me wrong, though, after seeing friends with other compact cars (even newer cavaliers seem less luxurious), this car simply blows them all away

Best Features

6500-RPM redline makes for some fun with a 5-spd, Extremely responsive throttle & steering, well-built, Honda's attention to detail and quality, great gas mileage (even when you floor it constantly; 30+ mpg)

Worst Features

Bigger engine. Bigger Engine. Bigger Engine. The 2002 models are getting there, but with 127-hp, they could use more hp)
