1997 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car with 63,000 miles. Excellent car. Have had no problems whatsoever with it! No costs other than regular maintenance. Highly recommend to those looking for fuel economy and reliability with a car that still looks good- despite its age.


Best Features

Fuel economy- especially with the stick shift. Very dependable.


Worst Features

More comfortable seating. Fine for everyday driving, but a little stiff for long trips.

1997 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe


Review

There are cars that get better fuel economy (but only a handful that seat four people), and there are more powerful cars, but only the HX delivers 115 HP in 2324 lbs with fuel economy over 40 MPG. The best of efficiency and reliability. A liitle noisy due to lack of sound deadoning material (which saves weight).


Best Features

Fuel economy, light tossable handling and zippy performance in a very reliable car.


Worst Features

A little quieter

Review

my '97 civic has been one of the most rewarding product purchases i have ever made and easily the best vehicle purchase. i love my civic and will stick with honda on my next vehicle though i will probably step up to an accord or something larger. my only complaint is the road noise. it is not exactly a quiet ride. the handling makes up for it though.


Best Features

love the five speed manual transmission. nothing makes driving more fun than working the shifter.


Worst Features

that road noise still has me checking the windows to make sure they really are rolled all the way up.
