1991 Honda Civic Wagon 4dr Wagon 4WD


Review

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.


Best Features

Outstanding 4x4 capabilities. 5 speed trans with super low. More load capacity than might be imagined.


Worst Features

Cup holders.

1991 Honda Civic Wagon 4dr Wagon 4WD


Review

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.


Best Features

Full time (realtime) four wheel drive. 6 speed transmission with special low available all the time, not just in 4wd locked as in '85.


Worst Features

More drive configurations on demand: (like '07 Suzuki SX4) 2WD, full time 4WD, 4WD locked.

Review

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 beginning to show a little wear, but is as solid and peppy as ever. I'm predicting she has another 10-12 good years, which is fortunate, since 1991 was the last year Honda made this little gem.


Best Features

Great ride. 4WD is great on snow, so I don't have to shovel my driveway. Tight turning radius. Made to last. And, of course, wonderful MPG


Worst Features

Please, Honda, bring back this model. And, when you do, don't use plastic knobs for releasing the back seats.

Review

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.


Best Features

Great fuel economy, good seat support, spacious cabin for a compact wagon, traditional Honda reliability, controls function without friction or confusion.


Worst Features

Noisy ride, miniature ice cream truck- styling, stiff manual steering and manual shift often makes city driving tiring, needs cupholders, and motorized shoulder belts are a poor substitute for an airbag and conventional belts.

Review

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 tape the filter to the top of the intake piping.


Best Features

Look on the other guy's face after he looses a race to a wagon!


Worst Features

as far as suspension goes... should have an anti-sway bar in the rear 'stock'. (without it the rear gives out too soon in varoius wet/dry conditions, when cornering hard)
