I really enjoy my car. I am a
teenager and loved the look of the
car. I have been driving it for over
2 years and love it. I like the look
so much better than the newer one, and
the gas mileage is great. Its a great
Dependability, gas mileage, the fact
that it doesn't have power steering
makes the driver feel more in touch
with the car and more in control.
More power! But if wanting more power,
you have to trade the great gas
mileage. If getting manual, you have
more of a get-go in the lower gears.
I've had my car for 7 years now, and
I'm just looking to sell it and get a
new honda. The only recall this car
has ever had was with the floor mats -
seriously. I still manage to get 30-34
MPG. Still handles very well, and I'm
only now starting to hear some rattles -
mostly in the driver's door - and that
is because i've had issues with my
windows. my cousin, and my best friend
also have similiar style honda civics
and have experienced the same problem -
the windows fall off track or get
stuck. you can fix it yourself pretty
easily, but i had my mechanic do it for
$50 and the window works great now.
thats my only complaint.
gets me from point a to point b on
time, and cheaply. if you take care of
this car, it won't let you down.
I bought my Civic when it was a year
old and have loved it every day
sense. I moved to Hawaii and could
not part with it, so it took a cruise
over and made it fine. I've never had
a problem with it, outside of the
driver's side window getting stuck
last year (although this may have to
do with after-factory tint I had put
on at that time) and this was easily
fixed. I wish it had more power going
up mountains, but it is worth it to
have the awesome gas mileage (30 - 34
mpg even with city driving). I love
my car and have not once regretted
this purchase. It has never let me
Everything in the Civic makes sense
from where the controls are to the
fuel economy to having plenty of room
for you and your adult friends without
being cramped. It drives just as
great now as it did when I bought it.
I don't know of any other car that is
so cool, yet so dependable.
This is a cool car and others may
want your car too. I had a break-in
after my move, and was told Civic
parts from different years are
interchangable and expensive so
there's a market for it in certain
areas, so get an alarm.
I'm writing this review if only to get
through my mourning of the loss of my
1997 Honda Civic EX... I was hit and
the car was totaled and I'm thinking of
suing for emotional distress. Gawd I
loved that car.
Reliable. Reliable. Reliable. When the
US manufacturers start making them like
Honda/Toyota--I'll start buying
