1990 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback

Review

We've owned this car since it had 15 miles on it and still love it. We have had a string of ignition system failures (burned distributors), but I think this is behind us. We also had a vexing clutch chatter problem that Honda couldn't fix, but our local garage finally figured out. Found that if the sun roof leaks, getting the drains cleaned fixes the problem. We've had Bridgestones, Goodyears and Michelins on the car. Michelins are best.

Best Features

Good gas mileage (30+), good for hauling stuff (even a 20' two place kayak on a roof rack) and fun to drive.

Worst Features

Needs more back seat room and better access to the rear seat. The optional wind deflector is essential if the sun roof is open, to defeat a drumming noise at 35 mph.
