Great around-town Car
By jacobwallace on
1997 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe
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
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.
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.
