1997 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe

Review

The car is great. It handles well, goes as fast as I need it to go, and is great on gas. Has not had one problem since I purchased the car. There is only one difficulty I've found. It does not want to go into reverse very easily with a 5-speed manual transmission. It sometimes takes a bit of work, especially on a slight hill. Also, if you are putting in an aftermarket stereo system with subwoofers, make sure you take a day off to do it. It takes awhile to take the entire interior of the car apart. Remember to connect a couple wires in the stereo plug if you want to use the dome light!

Favorite Features

Quick, sporty looks, great gas milage. Easy to handle.

Suggested Improvements

Make it easier to shift into reverse. Don't make the stock stereo so difficult to uninstall, and so important to other features in the car (dome light, keyless entry).
