1997 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe

Review

I've had this car since it was brand new, and I still love it! I've never had a major problem with it - totally reliable, although Honda had to replace the alternator, moonroof motor, and one headlight at various times early in life (ALL done under warranty, and on routine visits, not after any serious failures). Honda service is wonderful, if pricey - if having your car start every morning is worth your money, Honda is the way to go.

Favorite Features

Easy to manuver - great ride, but still very sporty for the price. Can't beat the fuel economy, but if you ride it hard (read drive fast in the city), then it drops to ~30 mpg. Larger backseat than any 2DR I've ever been in - same as Civic sedan, just with 2DR only.

Suggested Improvements

Armrest in center could be tougher - I've worried for 6 years that I'm gonna knock it loose if I push out of the car on it too hard - hasn't happened yet. Firestone tires that it came with were scary - I've had Michelin MX4 Rainforce for the last two sets - LOVE THEM.
