best car ive owned
By lang on
1998 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe
Ive owned my honda ex for about 8 years and i can honestly say that it has been the best car i have ever owned. Ive put 286,000 miles on it and yes ive had to put some money into it. eventually things wear out however, it has never "broken down" on me and i have never had to worry about it starting. The only flaw with this vehicle that i can see is that the exhaust rusts out quickly. other than that scheduled maintenance is all this baby needs to run like a top!! i have had to get frequent alignments but that could be my driving or the roads in maine or both. if i could wish for an improvement it would be a quieter ride. other than that i have no complains. handles well,mpg about 33 highway.
the manual shift is a pleasure to work with a deep throw but very smooth. + the controls are very ergodynamic.
less road noise. and more cushioning of the seat would be welcome.
