Great point A to B car, excellent for city driving. The 96-00 Civics are some of the best used cars around. Inexpensive to own (purchase price, Ins. cost, repair, fuel etc.). ***The SOHC engines can be prone to connecting rod bearing failure at high mileage.***
Fuel mileage can exceed 40 mpg.
Road noise. Braking system is not the greatest, 4 wheel disc brakes would have been better.
