This is a vehicle I never thought I'd enjoy driving. I gave up my commuter car a year ago, bought my wife a new car, and inherited her Civic grudgingly. However, it grew on me... it's spartanly comfortable, gets great gas mileage, drives and handles well. Although not powerful, the light weight of the car and spritely engine give it acceptable punch at expressway speeds. I compare the driving of a 1993 Civic to that of an imagined (although soon to be a reality) 1-series BMW!
Precise steering, easy handling, bolstered seats, plenty of legroom and headroom compared to newer Civics (suprisingly) - I am 6'2".
Well, this is an old car, so the "improvements" have already been done... more power would be my biggie.
