1996 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

So far so good, Had to take into the shop for muffler work and a problem with the intake, but besides that it been a good little car. 96000 miles and still runs great, only problem is that it does hesitate when pushing the gas to merge. Can be scary at times. Looks great on the outside and the inside is not bad. Fun car. Hopefully it will treat me good, and still has a decent resale value.


Best Features

Outside looks, and its reliability


Worst Features

Wish if I press the gas it will go, but hesitates alot right now.

1996 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Over the past 6 months I had this car it
drives nearly flawless in every way. Of
course since it was used I had to do
some minor repairs(New battery, realign
rear bumper, swap lightbulbs) To this
day I am still very pleased with this car.


Best Features

Small and compact yet enough room to fit 4 grown adults. Gas mileage a big PLUS.


Worst Features

D16Y7 engine, which makes the car weak. Needs to be replaced by the B16A SiR II Engine at 170 HP. Also interior should be wood trim or metal... not crappy plastic.

Review

CV joints going bad, muffler rusted out
at the axle (seems very common on
civics), clutch is wearing out(prior
driver possibly). My biggest complaint
is that it has hesitated for almost a
year with no check engine light. It's
been in the shop numerous times with no
luck. Not very pleased with the "Honda
quality". Will be buying Toyota next round.

Review

I bought my EX new in '96 and have had no
problems -- just usual maintenance -- new
battery, oil change and brakes. I just assume that
this car is going to run and it does. Now that I'm
50, I feel like I need something more expensive and
a bit more comportable --but it's really hard to give
this car up. I've even detailed it last year and it
looks amazing -- the black paint has held up really
well.
I keep looking at Mercedes, but when I hear the
problems that my friends have with theirs -- I
realize that I got a great deal by buying this car. It
still looks and acts new.


Best Features

Body styling and excellent paint job. -- cleans up really well. Love the fold down rear seat. This car has carried everything from grass sod to furniture...and always cleans up with no a lot of effort


Worst Features

Wished it were a bit less noisy on long drives. New and better tires really helped.
