1998 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan

Review

I don't have too many positive things to say about this car. I bought the car to get a reliable, high mileage, AT car. The car has always gotten low mileage (25/31) in mixed driving. Never higher than 32mpg in 100% Interstate travel. The trunklid is a guillotine despite the installation of a special spoiler-supporting trunklid torsion element. The exterior paint is eggshell fragile. Alternator was warranty replaced at 10K miles. The '92 Saturn SL I owned for 10yrs. was a better car than this one. We bought the Honda for it's glowing reputation, and based on my experience, I have to wonder how it was ever acquired...

Favorite Features

Relative reliability; basic mechanicals are good (outside of alternator). Potentially high re-sale value.

Suggested Improvements

Improve gas mileage. Improve trunklid torsion element. Improve paint.
