Excellent Transportation, DON'T RACE!!!
By FrugalCommuter on
1993 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan
I purchased this vehicle at an auction
in February of 2002 for $775. The car
was rammed into a curb, then left to
die. I replaced the front passenger
side suspension.Honda's are so easy to
work on, didn't take more then a
weekend to get that replaced. I have
driven the car for 20,000 miles since,
so far I have only replaced the axels.
Handels well for the liberal suspension
setup. Easily take corners at 90.
Brakes have been acceptable, but not
great due to the rear drum
configuration. Trunk is well sized for
the car. Tank is too small. Blow motor
doesn't blow enough air. Car just needs
about 30 more horsepower.
Great visability, both front and rear.
A/C works good. Excellent fit and
finish. I actually made the mistake of
taking it to the drag strip once. I was
surprised to run a 17.4 @ 80.1 mph. Not
too bad, but my car isn't stock, so its
Horsepower. Desperate need for more of
it. Brakes could be improved. Blow
motor needs definatley more
circulation. Suspension too sofly
sprung in its stock form. Car is only
enjoyable if pushed and runs great
above speeds of 50 mph.
