Bought this car at a city acution. Car
had body damage and needed substantial
Since it is only a DX, had the head
cleaned up and the intake side ported
-Straight piped the exhaust system (no
cats)..she dont tell the cops.
-Added a cold air intake
-Tuner style muffler
For around $1500 done and complete I
got a very nice ride.
Put 20,000 before selling it. Only
experienced rust induced troubles
(brakes rusted, suspension bushings...)
Peppy little car
Mine did a 1/4 mile in 17.2 and 0-60
in about 9.9 seconds, not bad for 4
door with 102 hp.
The fuel economy. Do you have any idea
how good it is? Consider this:
Drove to NY (from MI) 4 times
2 Passenger, approx 200 lb each + 200
lb luggage=600 lb
Average speed=72 mph
Average economy=41 mpg...*not a
(Keep in mind no cruise and plus one
wheels, on reg 87 unleaded)
Power is a little lacking. Steering
not very linear. Road Noise a bit
much. Defroster needs more juice. It
serves the loyal commuter yet with a
little time and money can be turned
into a street beast. Do yourself a
favor, buy yourself a Honda and enjoy
carefree motoring for life.
