1990 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback
Bought this unit from my Mom when I was 19 years old and drove for 8 years with few problems. Great car to get through college as it looked good for its time, could get up and go and was still cheap to run and had good fuel economy. Finally sold with 209,000 miles as it was going to need its third clutch and possibly new valve guides and still got $2300 for it and upgraded to a 1998 Prelude. These cars are very popular to tuners and fetch strong money consider new it was around $10,000 new 11 years earlier.
Nice looking hatchback, great interior with lots of cargo room in the back. good seats, could get up and go and handled well, very reliable and had a strong little 4 Cyl motor with lots of pep. Cool little car for its time.
A little more hp/torque would have been nice, better factory springs and shocks to make it handle a little tighter and tended to go through mufflers every 30- 50K (common problem on these cars) Overall few complaints for a car so low in price and high on features and quality
