1994 Honda Civic CX 2dr Hatchback


Review

i bought this car for $1400, i was looking for a cx, in red, a 5 speed, and only a hatchback. took me almost 4 years to find exactly what i wanted. 165,000 miles on it, burns a little oil but runs great. can't believe how much people are paying for repairs. i've replaced the radiator, used $25, fuel pump replaced new $40, turned out it was the fuel pump relay, $30. took less than 5 minutes to replace. want consistent 40+ mpg? get good radial tires and run tire pressure around 38 psi, and learn to drive. this car has plenty of power for the 1.5 liter 8 valve motor. run it with super unleaded, big difference, a few cents more but i'm getting as high 46 mpg and actually got 51 mpg on a recent trip. open a book people, learn to fix your own car, very easy to repair. i don't need ABS, or cruise control, seats are comfy but i don't weigh 250 pounds or move like a sloth. cupholders too small, dump the big gulp and get a bottle of water. of course the interior may break, its plastic, and it gets brittle, its almost 25 years old. parts to replace or repair are so cheap, it just make sense to buy a civic.

Review

So this was a hand-me down car from my mom that got a 09 Honda accord. Truly this car is older than me but it doesn't seem like it. The car has a sturdy build and awesome feel when driving. The interior is a clean cut design and cant get any better. I truly think its built better than my moms car and I'm only 15. My car has over 200,000 miles in it and has a new engine and has been taken care of and its better than any coupe car out there today. its even better than the top fuel efficient car out there getting a top mpg of 46!


Best Features

46+ mpg and easy cleaning car!


Worst Features

sunroof and cruise control

Review

Build quality is better than my mother's
2003 Corolla, and the only problems ive
had are some leaky gaskets and the front
axles. The engine is unbreakable - im
sure ive overrevved it more than a few
times in its 244,000 km and it still
pulls as well as it ever did if not
better. Only flaw right now is that it
has a bit of an erratic idle, but I
think its a voltage issue. I have the
DX engine (i checked the numbers on the
motor - it's the 102 hp variant) so it
feels like a 9 sec car, and it will
laughably dust V6 Camaros and mustangs.


Best Features

Clutch and shifter action are comparable to new sports cars. Unbreakable driveline (still original clutch). Fishtails nicely if you lift-throttle around corners. Stops on a dime. Good highway stability. The most reliable car ever built. Tons of interior room.


Worst Features

Front wheels hop around if there is a molecule of moisture on the tires. You will get stuck and hung up on snow. Needs beefier CV joints and boots - make sure you replace your boots every year. Si model addresses everything other complaint :).

Review

This is an extremely reliable car. I
bought mine new and put 268K on it
before encountering the 1st major
problem, transmission failure.
It is a very underpowered car, gas
mileage is excellent, comfort is
average. Overall it is a good commuter
car, or a 1st car for a teen.


Best Features

Gas Mileage, Reliability.


Worst Features

This car rusted in the rear wheel wells.
