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
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
Please, Honda, bring back this model.
And, when you do, don't use plastic
knobs for releasing the back seats.
I bought a '91 Civic 5-speed stick
wagon for its reputation for
dependability, reliability and fuel
economy. It delivered well on all three

shoulder belts are a poor substitute
for an airbag and conventional belts.
The car is great until my bro flawed
it on I-55 and blow up the engine cuz
we forgot to add engine oil. NP. We
were thinkin about changing motors
already. We decided to stick with the
budget and put a ZC engine into the
Si. Now instead of 108hp I have 130hp!
It handles well.
Manual Steering~Great Feeling!
Low~ Great Sense of Speed!
window crank shaft, suspensions, side

I have had this one since early 2002,
when the car was already old. It has
55,000 miles, but even so has a book
value of a paltry $1,770. I would
Never trade it in, because any
replacement would never cut the
Reliability; timeless looks; economy.
Wheels could be stainless steel to
prevent rust. Other than that, it
