1992 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

What can I say? We are a Honda family. We have found them to be very reliable, and this was no exception. Over the course of two years that I drove the car (inherited it from my wife) we spent an average of $62 per month, including all oil changes and servicing. Not bad when you consider what a normal car payment would be. The reliability of the engine is great, the starter on these is bad. They will often times not start on particularly hot and humid days. But give it five minutes and it will turn right over. A problem with the main relay on the starter. Also, I never liked the side mounted door handles, and the cup holders are a false sense of security - you'd be better off not using them.


Favorite Features

Honda reliability. A style that did not age much when I sold it at 14 years old. Great engine performance.


Suggested Improvements

They no longer have the odd door handles, and cup holders have been improved on newer models. If you get this car, try to get the main relay replaced and you'll be fine. Sold it at $164,000 miles only because I hate the stick shift and odd design.

Review

We bought this car with 125,000, and it has been faithful to us for 7 years and 75,000 miles. We have done standard maintenance for a 17 year old car (new muffler, changed the belts, new clutch). Other than that, nothing but standard maintenance. The car has never broken down, all the electronics still work, and it still runs great.


Favorite Features

40 mpg, 37 with four people in it on the hwy. 33 in the city. Incredibly reliable. 5 speed is fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

I am sure they have improved it over the last 17 years!

Review

I drove this car until it died. I got the car in 1998 and I got my 350 dollars out of it that I definitely owe Honda some money (Don't tell them that). The car currently has 298000 miles on it. They really don't make cars like that anymore. Sometimes it was really hard to start but always kept me safe. I drove this car from NY to PA, TN, IN, GA, SC, FL, CT, OH to name a few places. I loved my car rust and all. The thing is the engine is still alive and kicking .Thing is the car will fall apart but the engine is really built to last. Its just water is coming in now and the alternator has finally died. Bottom line if I could get a semi new 1992 Honda Civic. I would buy it yesterday.


Favorite Features

All


Suggested Improvements

Nothing really except rusting occurs but who can really complain car is over 20 years old
