ReviewI bought this car 2 1/2 years ago at a little over 212k miles, and since then have put in a battery and alternator - that's reliability. If it hadn't been in an accident, it would still be on the road today...definately the best first car I ever could have asked for. My 94 Civic Si couldn't hold a candle to the 91's reliability, the 94's already had a timing belt, head gasket, water pump, thermostat, and brake calipers and pads (all 4), and I've only had it a year.
Best FeaturesGreat gas mileage, no less than 38MPG, average around 40-41. As reliable as they come, and not made with 3/4 plastic like some cars are today. Best $500 I ever spent.
Worst FeaturesMore comfortable front seats would definately be a plus. Honda also should pay more attention to rust areas, my dad's 90 and my 91 and 94 all had rust spots just over the rear wheels, and the 90 and 91 had rust just under the "HONDA" on the trunk.
