I recently totalled my little hatch. I blew a front tire going downhill on the freeway and hit a concrete retaining wall doing about 65 mph. My passenger and I walked away shaken, but unscathed. I'm so sad! That car was my little buddy! It may not have been a fancy car, but it was reliable, fun, and above all, safe. I'm buying another Civic with the money I get for my car...but I really just want the one I had. It was great!
Visibility, safety, size...great for city driving where you have to parallel park a lot. GREAT gas mileage!
Sound system, mediocre pickup. Prone to rust. Hydroplaned easily.
