10 years of trouble-free driving
By Ken was IL now MI on
1992 Honda Civic VX 2dr Hatchback
Best car I've ever owned. Only
replaced the typical (tires, battery,
brakes,tuneup,timing belt,etc) Needed
new CV boots at 140,000. Replaced
driveshafts (about $330.00). Used Mobil
1 since 500 miles. Maintains 42 MPG
city/highway. Rust is starting to
become a concern. Wonder how much
longer it will still look acceptable.
Excellent mpg (once got 58 from Chicago
to Detroit), easy to park, easy to work
on, excellent clutch - still seems like
new. Good braking. Body integrity was
excellent - nothing broke except the
driver's door lock. Still goes 80 MPH
on freeway quietly and smoothly.
Needed cruise control as standard,
Didn't have intermittant wipers. Could
have used better rust protection.
Exhaust system was expensive to replace
but only needed to once.
