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!!!!!!!!!

1991 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


Review

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 mustard.


Best Features

Reliability; timeless looks; economy.


Worst Features

Wheels could be stainless steel to prevent rust. Other than that, it rocks!
