Have had this car for years and it's still in good shape. With only a few major repairs (brakes, exhaust) it hasn't missed a beat and it gets great gas mileage too. Coming on 160k miles now and it looks like I'll be able to keep this for years to come.

I bought this car 2 1/2 years ago at a little over 212k miles, and since then have put in a battery and alternator - that's reliability. If it hadn't been in an accident, it would still be on the road today...definately the best first car I ever could have asked for. My 94 Civic Si couldn't hold a candle to the 91's reliability, the 94's already had a timing belt, head gasket, water pump, thermostat, and brake calipers and pads (all 4), and I've only had it a year.

Beloved wife and I have owned our 1991
white Civic "Pegasus" since 1992.
Along the way we have had trouble with
CV boots, the heater blower and
resistor switch, the rear driver side
door latch. In the past 4 years we
have spent $4000 on repairs to go about
50,000 miles. Not bad.
At this point, with 190,000 miles, it
isn't 100% reliable, but it is still a
zippy little car and very fun to drive.
Wish it had a clock and cup holders.
We bought a 1996 Accord yesterday to
replace it, but we will probably keep
it around a while just for old time's

This baby just won't give-up. Have
never had any major problems
whatsoever. Kept up with Honda's
regular maintenance schedule which I
think has alot to do with it. Interior
looks great. Not as peppy as it used
to be, but has served us well.
