1992 Honda Civic VX 2dr Hatchback


Review

Overall a great car. Small yet roomy on the inside. Superb car on the gas! Small engine but w/ 5-speed was able to keep up w/ "big guys". I ended my Honda experience being crushed by a tractor-trailer at the stop sign - I am alive but I cannot imagine surviving a real crush


Best Features

Quick pick up, great gas saver,


Worst Features

No power and absolutely no pick up over 70 mph especially w/ AC on. All joints are fragile, I had to replace shocks and all twice in 4 years, police magnet due to fast and furious film fiasco, doesn't do well in accidents w/ semi's, make sure to replace all belts as schedule or repairs will cost you

1992 Honda Civic VX 2dr Hatchback


Review

I owned my 1st VX for 10 years - see my 5/2002 review in this section. I was very sad when I sold it but I did because it started to rust badly in several areas. While looking at the bargain section of the car classifieds of the Detroit newspaper I found another 92 VX! for only $1500! What's great about this one? NO SERIOUS RUST!! Three years later????? Anyway the new one (14 years young next month) is really fantastic. It has only 128,000 miles, doesn't leak/burn/use oil, the engine runs like new and the interior is in better shape than my 1st VX - seats and carpeting are mint. Still has the same advantages and disadvantages as the old one but if I could find another 92 I'd buy it!!


Best Features

Reliability - nothing ever fails as long as regular maintenance is done.


Worst Features

Too late for that but it would be great if Honda could bring back the 1.5 or 1.3L lean burn engines and get 50 to 60 MPG. The 80's 90's CRX's were great gas sippers too and fun to drive also!

1992 Honda Civic VX 2dr Hatchback


Review

With gas prices so high only Hybrids can do better for mileage. This car has high interior noise, the seats are not that comfortable and rust is showing up in the rear quater panels but that is about the end of the bad stuff. Almost 283K miles, no major engine work and average mileage is around 40 MPG. It handles well and keeps up in city traffic no problem. I have seen several civics customized but this one won't see that kind of work until the engine goes.


Best Features

Great mileage and very low general operating costs. Hatch back area has more room than it appears. Can haul lots of stuff with seats down.


Worst Features

A quieter interior and more comfortable seats would be the only needed improvements

Review

In 11 years of ownership, only four items have broken, two under warranty. A heat shield loosened and rattled, interior locking latches broke on both doors, the distributor cap cracked. Total repair bills: $353 (including 1 tow). All other items have been scheduled maintenance and expected replacements (e.g. battery, tires, CV boots, exhaust system) Overall average efficiency is 46 mpg in my mix of city and suburban freeway driving.


Best Features

Efficiency, reliability, fun-to-drive factor.


Worst Features

Better sound-proofing would be nice.
