I just sold my 93 ex with 282,000 on it. Never touched the engine and I drove the heck out of it, spent about 3,000g over 175,000. Have an accord now, would recommend an accord over a civic, much nicer ride/ comfort for very little penalty in gas consumption.
I am a Honda person for life now!! 260,000 hard miles, uses no oil and not a single major repair. Over 40mpg highway and 35mpg city. I suggest sending the fuel injectors in for off car cleaning every 100k miles (NONE of the bottle stuff works, I tried it all) and do yourself a favor and install a high flow airfilter and muffler. It does NOT have to be a loud "coffee can" to improve performance AND mileage. My exhaust manifold developed a crack around 200k and I replaced it with a header because of lower cost. I would never go back. There was no downside and my engine was more responsive at all rpm's. I use a 50% mix of synthetic and regular oil this made a noticeable improvement in hp & mpg.
reliable, fun to drive, great mileage, everything is within easy reach.
Honda should start building THIS civic again. I like it much better than the new ones.
A honda Civic will be one of the Best
cars you will ever own. I bought mine
in 2000 with 80,000 miles. By the
time I sold it, it had 130,000. The
only repairs were a hole in the
exhaust and a distributor (common for
this model yr.)
The small engine with an automatic
lacked low end torque, but by the time
it it 3500 rpm it started to move
nicely. No trouble to do 60+ on the
hiway. The car had a very nice ride
yet still cornered easily. No squeaks
or rattles even after 130,000 miles
and the way i drove the hell out of
it. Nice room for a car in this class
I miss the Civic. In fact, after
a Jeep and a Cavalier since then, I am
buying an 04 Civic
-Great MPG, 35 With a mix of
-Does NOT DIE! The thing lasts for
-If you're into it, huge aftermarket
Most improvments have been since 93.
Most notably, more power (102hp/98
lb/ft in 93), (115/110 in 04
LX, more on EX with VTEC).
Maybe also a better auto tranny, kind
of a slug on hills and hesitates to
shift unless you push the pedal far.
Newer models have an Electronicly
Why can't GM make a reliable, high-
mileage car like the Civic
In 11 years and 82,000 miles, we've
had to replace the brakes, alternator,
battery and clutch to the tune of
maybe $2000. It still gets 30 miles
to the gallon in the city.
Great gas mileage, very reliable and
Clutch has always been hard.
Car is too low to the ground. Feels
like you're sitting on a big roller
My 93 civic sedan is my fourth honda
and i love it! My last one i put 238K
miles on it, this one has 163K and
still runs great! Unlike ANY DOMESTIC
vehicle, this car still has no
squeeks, rattles or odd end broken
stuff. My mom and 2 sisters have
hondas now due to how well mine have
lasted. Honda is ALL i will EVER drive!
I love the lil pocket by the cup
holder, i love the cup holder style,
the trunk is huge, head rests look
cool, GREAT on gas! The style and
curves of the car have held up well
over the years. Oh and one last
thing.. its not a CHEVY.
EEEWWWWW!!!!!!!! =O) hehe
Hmmm, thats a hard one...its a DX so
maybe moore power and bigger wheels.
Other than that i cant complain. They
are great cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
