1991 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Well first off, I bought the car from an old man for $1500, when I was a senior in high school. I looked at and was in excellent condition inside and out, but I checked the odometer and showed 289,000. I was thinking wow this thing is gonna blow up when I drive it. Soon after talking about it I asked for a test drive and honestly it drove and handled just fine. It is a 5 speed and had a 1.5 L with a new alternator and starter.

Grandma bought this $1900 car as a present for my 16th b-day (Oct 04). Had 107k on it. 2 prev owners, last was teen girl also. I was really hard on it 1st 2yr, it was my 1st & I drove it rough & changed the oil about every 6-7k. Then I got smart changed oil every 3k & the tranny fluid every 15k. After HS, took car to GU & made 9.5 trips over Snoq Pass b/t Seattle & Spokane, fair amount of weight in it too. On last trip to Sea, oil light came on 60mi outside Spo, stopped at local repair shop, no eng knocking, so said it was faulty light, light went on and off rest way, then in mid of pass, it died. Oil pump went, blowing the cam shaft. That car was my baby, and when it died, I cried for days.

I have used this car strictly as a route vehicle, averaging 170 miles a day. Given its age and miles (219k), this is an amazing car. There are now some leaks that need attending to, but the car is amazingly dependable and the performance is fantastic. I average more than 35 mpg in mixed driving.

I got the car, for more Gas Mileage, and i love it, but i am a novice to the 5sp kind. I have learned quick, and am doing great! The car is like new, a rust spot on one side, and thats all. Car looks and drives like new!! This is the kind of car, for a person who is looking to get Great Gas Mileage and not have to fill up every time ya turn around. But i have found the room to be quite small, as i am a big guy, i like more room, None the less, the car is in great shape with 152xxx miles on it and still runs like it was just built this year! This car is okay, put the cup holder in a better place than on top of the dash.Buy a used 91 civic lx and you won't be mad you did!!!!!

Review

I've had this car for seven months, it has 163000 miles on and the only noise comes from one of the original wheelcaps, but I haven't changed it because I can't find the original ones. Everything works fine, power mirrors, windows, central lock, air conditioned etc. It's bit down powered compared to lighter newer cars like Hyundais of Nissans, but it is a lot more reliable and the design looks always cleaner and not as fast-dating as other makes. I'm planning to keep it until next year and then buy a newer Civic, maybe a 1996 or 97, but I know I'm gonna miss this one, maybe I'll sell it to my brother so it stays in the family!

The car that wouldn't Die!

Review

We've owned this car for 13 years now. We've gone through 3 timing belts, cv boots, 2 axles, a gas tank, a radiator, A/C repairs and 3 brake jobs. BUT... My wife has driven back and forth to work (100 miles a day) with absolutely no oil in the car more than once and no water in the radiator with no damage what-so-ever to the engine and although the timing belt has gone 3 times, each time it went the car still got us home (this car has great "timing" on when to decide to breakdown)and again, no damage to the engine! Aren't broken timing belts supposed to bend the pistons or valves? I think this car is our guardian angel!

Review

I luv my civic. Last year my license plate read "CVCMNDD"=CIVIC MINDED. Bought this car used back in '94 with 48,000 miles on it. It now has 161,000. Just had the alternator replaced at 160k and the a/c compressor at about 90k (my mechanic told me it was a dealer installed compressor, not one honda put in). This little baby began my love for Honda vehicles. I currently own a '01 Odyssey as well. Also had a '95 accord wagon ,'98 Odyssey and '00 accord.But through all those other Hondas I just couldn't part with my civic. The accords are real nice but I feel the civic is the perfect little getting around town car.

This is a great car with a great fuel efficiency and inner space. I have never seen such a specious car among other brands. I certainly suggest Honda Civic LX to anybody who wants to feel the comfort and luxuary.

The car that won't die

Review

My 91 Civic has 150k miles on it now. I drove it through college, through grad school, and now it's serving as a wonderful and, most importantly, RELIABLE 2nd car. I had to replace the alternator at 145k miles, but aside from that and scheduled maintenance, this car has demanded nothing of me. We also own a '99 Accord, and before the Civic, I owned an '87 Accord which didn't die until the transmission finally gave out at 257k miles. We're currently looking to trade in the '91 Civic for an Odyssey, but I don't want to betray my baby!!!
