1997 Honda Civic CX 2dr Hatchback

Review

bought base model ( lightest, nothing power but brakes, no options ) for 10800.- Put AEM airintake for better breathing and 10 more hp, sport springs and -shocks ( stiffer and 1.5" lower ), front and rear -swaybars, front strut towerbar, 15" alloys w. 195/55-15 -V rated performance tires, all for much improved handling, race breakpads in front to compensate for weak rear drumbrakes . Total cost for improvements : $ 3000.- Overall result: a small ,light, fast, good handling, cheap car with 40 mls. plus mileage, very reliable and lots of fun !! A 9.5 overall for sure.

Best Features

Reliability, handling, great , easy ergonomics, gas mileage, hatchback versatility, double wishbone suspension, light weight agility

Worst Features

of course more horses would be nice, but if you use the 5-speed properly and don't lugg it, you are fine. 15" wheels and better tires desirable.
