Best econo car ever made and owned so far. Very easy to modify (interior/ exterior wise). I've added a 94 si moonroof, rear windshield wiper, 17" rims, slightly lowered, 99 si dash modification with all red lighting, DC5R steering wheel, 99 si OEM CD player and slave tape deck, better speakers, 99 si head lights, fog lights, 99-00 civic front bumper, power door locks/ power windows, and it still gets 55+ mpg with the added weight. This car may take a while to pick up speed, but is still fast for a super econo engine. So far have had no problems with engine/tranny. A great commuter car. It's a new experience when one drives a car that's nice to your wallet. I'll never get rid of this car!!!
Creatively engineered hatch, great room for luggage, back lights, sleek window design, very light, fuel economy guaranteed 55mpg in hwy. I've experienced 61mpg half the time in long trips. Capatible with 99 civic si interior, very easy to modify interior, easily placed (but expensive) OEM moonroof
Lacks rear passanger room for 5 adults. Get a 96-00 hatchback if you need more rear passanger room. Too much wind noise, but can be reduced with thicker weather stripping and dynomat.
