If a better all around vehicle has ever been made that is accessible to the average person, tell me about it, ok? I can't remember what the mileage was when purchased, but it was over 200,000 and I wasn't the least bit concerned about it. We had just had some typical Iowa winter weather when I road tested its 4x4 capabilities and bought it then and there. I eventually put in a new radiator, went through the clutch system entirely and had the suspension system bushings replaced. I have put well over the used purchase price into this vehicle without a single regret. With 240,000 miles and nearly 20 years old, it is a trusted daily driver.

With 315,000 miles this car has always gotten me home, or at least to my mechanic, under its own power. I've not babied it. It's gone 110 mph at least twice since turning 300K. Commuting or highway MPG is about 27. We have an '85 with fewer miles and a better styled interior with many more configurations than I've seen before or since on any vehicle.

I can't believe I was smart enough to
buy this car! My combined city/highway
mileage is still about 33 MPG. My
most expensive repair has been under
$500. After 14 years of moving large
dogs and lots of stuff, she is

I bought a '91 Civic 5-speed stick
wagon for its reputation for
dependability, reliability and fuel
economy. It delivered well on all three
counts. Also very spacious for people
and cargo in the interior. Always ran
well and got me where I needed to go
without incident. I had it only a few
months and only sold it because I
desired something more stylish. I
learned later never to part with
something this dependable. Makes first-
rate budget transportation with room.

The car still may be old, but the
suspension is top-notch! Suspension
tuning is easy, and improves the cars
stability greatly. The motor runs and
puts out a good ammount of power
considering it is a 1.5L motor, but
runs best with out the air box. Just

I have a 1991 Civic Wagon which I consider to be the holy grail of small cars, and I will gladly replace it with the Fit if it comes out in the US. The bottom line for me is that interior dimension-wi...
