I bought my car back in January 2009 and it has been almost 3 years.
Its a 1992 Honda Civic Hatchback and it has been my life saver.
I named her Lil Magic because she never lets me down.
Its so funny because for it to be such a old car, almost
20 yrs old, she still keeps up with the best of them effortlessly.
We are often doing 90 on the highway and joke around with my bf and I tell him that the car actually prefers to go fast.
Im not kidding she is FAST!!.
I dd not do any modifications yet but I plan to in the future.
I sometimes wish I had power lock doors and windows but the cars loyalty to me means much more.
Ppl see me on the street and always wanna buy here.
I love my car.

This car is a lot of fun to drive around Chicago. The light weight, the 5-speed manual, the 1.5 liter engine, and the tight handling make it feel sporty. Low maintenance. High MPG. The body is solid but starting to rust a bit around the rear wheel wells. After a wash and wax, I get offers from random people on the street to buy it. Just can't bring myself to replace it. Honda really did this one right.

I have had my 92 for 16 years and have no plans to get rid of it. The Little Red Car has 185K miles on it and has been extremely trustworthy. I am a Japanese car tech by trade and only use OEM Honda parts when possible. The axle shafts are the originals. I have, during it's life, installed the second set of boots after the originals. The rotors and drums have never been machined. I am now on the first set of OEM replacement shoes and second set of OEM pads. I am on the first timing belt, water pump and front engine seals, with new drive belts. I will be installing the second replacement belts, tensioner, valve adjust, plugs and misc within the next few days. Then, here I come 250K miles.
A driver airbag is standard on all new Civics. Unfortunately, the wagon body style is dropped from the lineup. VTEC power is available by way of the top-end EX model. All sedans now have power steering added to their standard equipment list.
