1998 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my civic 6 years ago on a junk title. It has always started for me and never let me down. It is so faithful that I am even bored with it! What a good car. Nothing exciting, just faithful.


Best Features

reliability is just incredible.


Worst Features

paint is junk.

1998 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

I have not been very happy with this car. From the paint peeling to the door handles breaking and wiper motors not working. Now at 155k, a deep knock in the engine (most likely a rod) I'm done with Honda!

1998 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

I absolutely love this little coupe! I bought it when I was unemployed for a year and needed something to drive that would be economical, inexpensive, and fuel effeciency. It has done all of things and more. It's comfortable, handles well, and is fun to drive. I bought my 1998 Civic with 95k miles, it now has 115k after 10months of absolutely flawless ownership. Just maintence costs and gas. I get 34mpg in mixed driving and 38mpg highway. cheap alternative no more, I'm a civic believer.


Best Features

Love the power, handling, and most of all the mpg's!


Worst Features

The only thing about this car that I'm not a big fan of is the way the wind pushes it around on the highway, but to solve that would mean more weight. So I think that I can live with it.

1998 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe


Review

I love my little red Honda! It currently has 199,602 miles on it, I have had it for about 3 years now and I have never had a car that has has this much fuel economy and power and still runs like new at 200k miles! I have done some minor modifications on this car, and now have about 55+mpg highway and about 45+city. All I did was put in performance spark plugs, wires and distributor, run full synthetic oil, and cold air intake with a k&n Filter (It cost me all of about 100 bucks)! I was always sceptical of 'Ricers' (this car was a gift from my fiance) and I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! I love my Honda :) It has been nothing but an exceptional vehicle, I am planning on making it last to 400k miles..


Best Features

The Fuel Economy is amazing ( A new hybrid cannot even compare)! It never gives me too many problems! It is low cost for maintenance (even if the parts are a pain to find) It is an amazing piece of machinery, Honda certainly knew what to do when making this car. When will the competition be able to compete?! I have been a mechanic all of my life and I am constantly amazed by my Little Red Honda!!


Worst Features

None, save for MAKE THEM AGAIN!! No changes, this same car, brand new so I can have a new to break in so it will last even longer than the one I already have! Thank you Honda!!!
