Beloved wife and I have owned our 1991
white Civic "Pegasus" since 1992.
Along the way we have had trouble with
CV boots, the heater blower and
resistor switch, the rear driver side
door latch. In the past 4 years we
have spent $4000 on repairs to go about
50,000 miles. Not bad.
At this point, with 190,000 miles, it
isn't 100% reliable, but it is still a
zippy little car and very fun to drive.
Wish it had a clock and cup holders.
We bought a 1996 Accord yesterday to
replace it, but we will probably keep
it around a while just for old time's
Fun to drive (small and peppy). Hates
the gas pump. Clean auto transmission
Suspension is poor and noisy now that
it's old. Power brakes seem weak in
spite of repeated assurances from
mechanics that all is well.
