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