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.

this is my first car and i am driving it from last 5 months...it's excellent. it's comfortable, fun, dependable. i bought it used. previous owner was careless, he never care for it. since i bought it it sits in garage. it's an automatic but i SHIFT AT!! MPG is low (because of my driving habits 3rd at 80 mph)..i don't like driving my second car (2003 accord).. i like most is its comfort. it feels solid.. wish if honda restart its production with 300+ HP, I am really gonna buy 1.. I LOVE MY EG!!!

Purchasing her was a nightmare, but owning her is a dream. This car has seen: 5 roundtrip treks from Chicago to L.A., plowed through 2 ft deep snow (clearing a path for a Blazer for 4 miles), ran into the side of a mountain (friend borrowed her), carried everything I owned as a bachelor, beats camaros through intersections (then loses a block later, lol), looks great, runs better, and is still ready for more. I realize no one will probably see this because of the year, but she is worth the effort to type a few words of praise. I will look back on the time i owned her, and smile. I will always compare future cars to her. My children will drive Civic HB's as their startup cars if I can convince them.

I love it. It has great
handling, acceleration for a car w/ a
102hp, lots of cargo room, cool looks,
and GREAT mpg. The car looks great for
a 92 w/ a simple yet sporty
design. The acceleration is great
especially w/ the 5-spd. The seats
are great. They have lots of side
bolstering for hips, ribs, and a little
for shoulders. They have great lumbar
support too. The handling is great.
You don't have to worry about hitting
anyone in parking lots. I
would suggest getting one without PS,
because you get a better feel of the
road. Don't forget the 35/40 mpg you
get with the car. If you want a cool
little car but on a budget, this is the
car for you.
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.
