Great first car!

1997 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe

Review

I got this car for my 16th birthday three years ago with 88k miles, and nearly 30k miles later it's still running great. Had to have the axle replaced a while back, for a cost of $800, but that's really been the only problem I've had. Gas mileage is decent, but could be a little better. Acceleration can be a tad sluggish, but overall okay for a 4 cyl. Couldn't have asked for a better first car.

Best Features

Sunroof controls to the left of the steering wheel, solid build quality, sporty feel, great sound system quality.

Worst Features

Slow acceleration especially up hills, gas mileage is not exceptional. The gas gauge isn't steady,making it hard to tell exactly how much gas you have.
