I have really enjoyed my 97 Civic HX.
It is super reliable and is alot of fun
to drive. Love going around corners at
high speeds. Really holds the road
with the double wishbone suspension.
Engine very smooth and rev happy even
with 140000 miles on the car. Reaches
74 mph in second gear at 7200 rpm
before fuel cuts out. Doesn't use a
lick of oil. I am amazed how Honda's
last. My parents last one had a 236000
on it when they traded it in. I am
sold on Honda.
Fuel economy, handling (double wishbone
suspension), smooth and reliable
Wish cruise had been an option in 97 on
Wish that the new Civics would go back
to the double wishbone suspension setup.
