i bought this car used at 176,000 ish miles for $2,300 in 2005, already 11 years old.
it's just had it's last run now in 2012 at 312,000 miles!! honestly i could probably get it running for $50 but its had it's time and i'm ready for something different.
I have never had any major repairs done to this car.
although i've always had some blower motor switch problem that i could have fixed but didn't.
the blower finally quit nov 2011.
if i had fixed my problem when it was small it would have been fine.
i drove this car across country 900 mile journey 3 times and countless trips in range of 100 miles at a time.
great long lasting car!

I have had really good luck with my 1994 Honda Civic DX. It has 178,000 miles on it. About 3 yrs ago, a lot of things went wrong with it at the same time. But they were all things that if I had kept on top of them, they probably wouldn't have gone wrong like they did. I have been extremely happy with my car, and even today, I get about 32 mpg. The main thing I would gripe about is that I am about to put in the 2nd compressor for my A/C.

This is my first car. I got it from my cousin who had it for a year. She got it from a liitle old lady that drove it to church and groceries once a week. I got it with 56,000 miles on it. Amazing, hasn't even been broken in with. It unfortunately is an automatic transmission. Though a 5-spd is more sporty, this little honda can hold the road for a front wheel drive car, even on wet pavement. With the proper tires on it. This car will drive forever if I let it. I observe about 27-32 mpg depending on how I drive for the week. I average 250 miles a tank which lasts 6-7 days. With the price of gas it is important. The brakes are flawless. No leaks and little squeaks.

I have owned many cars, and this one
is by far the most fun out of them
all. Even with the small engine, it
is incredibly zippy. The 5 speed
manual transmission makes it even more
fun to drive. Owning this car has
made me a major fan of Honda. I am
purchasing the 2004 Honda Pilot
(family outgrew the Civic,
unfortunately). I will definately
miss this car.

I purchased this car with 77,000 miles
and drove 500-1000miles a week. I now
have 270,000 miles and it just goes on
ticking. I have had few repairs one
head gasket, thermostat and other minor
repairs. It is a reliable car when you
are a person that knows little about
repairs. I don't think I would ever
want to buy any other can then a Honda.
