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

a Jeep and a Cavalier since then, I am
buying an 04 Civic

Maybe also a better auto tranny, kind
of a slug on hills and hesitates to
shift unless you push the pedal far.
