1998 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I got this car when it had 125K miles and i have had for 3 yrs. Now it has 195,000 and still going strong. The only major breakdown i had was with the clutch but other than that it's a good car. I intend to drive it until it has 400K

1998 Honda Civic Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Civic new in 1998 and kept it for nearly 11 years. In that time I had to make only two unscheduled repairs: first to replace the muffler and then the power window regulator. Overall it's been a great car - reliable, fuel efficient, and pretty fun to drive, especially with the manual transmission.


Best Features

Stellar reliability - these cars easily hit 200K miles with minimal repairs; fuel efficiency - I routinely get around 34 mpg.


Worst Features

Reduce road/engine noise; improve exterior paint (wears easily especially if exposed to a lot of sun)... that's about it.

1998 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new and have been driving it for almost 10 years in all kinds of weather conditions. It is a good car: well built, good finish, reliable, and economical on gas and repair bills. The only major faults I have with it are excessive highway noise and a low door sill making it difficult to get in and out of the car.


Best Features

Mechanical reliability.


Worst Features

Better sound insulation and higher door sill.

1998 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

Great car. Bought with 65000 miles on it, now have 190000 and it is still going strong. Drive 100 miles a day and it has been totally reliable. I have not done a timing belt since I got it. Great MPG, 34 up to 40 on occassions. My first Honda after many Toyotas. They make a terrific car for commuters like me.

1998 Honda Civic Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I love my cCvic, it was the best vehicle purchase I have made. I drive it on a 97 mile round trip daily and have not had any problems with it in five years. I would highly recommend a 98 Honda Civic EX!


Best Features

Sunroof, keyless entry


Worst Features

Do not route the keyless entry system through the radio. I only have an AM/FM radio without a cassttte or CD player. I wanted to put in a new radio, but was unable to do so without affecting my keyless entry.
