1990 Honda Civic DX 2dr Hatchback

Review

While there are good to great things about this car, unfortunately it has had enough problems that I wonder whether I got a lemon. Many repairs needed, including a front axle replacement (under extended warranty, good thing I purchased it), a front windshield which cracked on its own from a defect, CV boot issues and the rear windshield when it shattered while parked, no outside cause found, an oil- burning issue never properly explained. It's also one of the most "user-surly" cars to service that I have seen so far. I still think enough of the overall design that I would purchase another one, just to see if my problems were unique.

Best Features

MPG, fun (when working properly), great cargo capacity.

Worst Features

Better engine, serviceability, engine cooling (overheating problems) and electrical systems. Get rid of timing belt, use chain.
