I wish more cars were made this way.
Manual transmission and rack-and-pinion
steering (NOT power steering) impart
excellent road-feel and responsiveness.
This drives like a sports car at a commuter-
car price. Reliability is astoundingly good.
Riding a 1995 Honda Civic Ex Coupe is
pleasurable. Its interior comfort is
great and its performance is almost
excellent. The EX model is powerful
though lacks much horsepower. It
should have brought a twin cam Vtec
system. I've been a couple of years
with it and had not a single problem
with it. It has a beautiful exterior
design because of its sportish, modern
design. Overall Ill rate it excellent
Vtec, sunroof, best design.
sunroof mechanic is cheap. It breaks a
lever after a while. Ive seen almost
every civic with that problem.
Bought it right off lease in '97 with
only 11k. Now 165K on it an it drives
just as good as that day i bought it.
Best car I've ever owned...so good I
feel guilty just thinking about
getting another car. Consistent gas
mileage in the 30's. Good looks are
just as fresh as they were in 95 (IMO
looks better than the 03's and 04's).
Tons of aftermarket stuff allow you to
really make your civic unique. Only
real complaint is the weak A/C.
I just bought this car with about
250,000km's on it and it still runs
like a beauty. Came with K&N filter
and a could air intake which gives it
a bit of a boost on takeoffs and keeps
the engine really cool, even though
winter does that pretty well too.
Trunk came with a bit of a puddle in
it around the wheelwell which I was
told was because of condensation even
though there is a drain plug inside
it. Has a lot of pep and thank god I
bought this one in standard, its
really built for it though the gas
tends to stick a bit when releasing
the clutch which could be fixed by
altering the timing a bit.
