1997 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe
We've had this car for over 6 years
now. Bought it new. The car is very
reliable. It get's decent mileage.
Avg about 27MPG in mixed city/hwy. The
only problem was the battery failed at
about 5 years. This is normal I
Excellent reliability, decent fuel
- good acceleration from a stop, but
trying to pass on the hwy or driving up
hills is hard with this engine.
- lot's of road, engine noise. (par for
this class of car I think)
