1991 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback


Review

Very fun car to drive, has some good get up for 110hp. Tight cornering, has plently of space for such a small car. But i have not seen one of these last past 160000 miles, stock. do not buy if it has close to that...rear suspension gives, tranny starts to slip and scratch, ac/compressor goes out, clutch needs replacement alternator and timing belt as well. this may just be me but i have known 3 other people same year all si's with same problems...


Best Features

It is a paper weight and the short gear ratios.


Worst Features

interior dash sucks...needed to be designed better for cdplayer/tape deck. easy to steal. needs pwr options

1991 Honda Civic 4dr Wagon 4WD


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.

1991 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback


Review

I have driven my SI for 14 years and
loved every minute of it. FUN car to
drive, and practical, carries alot of
stuff. Mileage is great.
Feels like a sports car.


Best Features

Simple and basic which is good. Moon roof and a sweet ride.


Worst Features

Bring back the old styling. Throw in a cup holder for those morning commutes.

1991 Honda Civic 4dr Wagon


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.

1991 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.


Best Features

Manual Steering~Great Feeling! Low~ Great Sense of Speed!


Worst Features

window crank shaft, suspensions, side lights (it flew out while doin 100mph = ( ), and.... CUP HOLDER!!!!!!!!!
