1998 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought the car for my high school son six years ago with 63000 miles. He's put on another 119000 hard miles on it. During most of this time the only thing required was regular maintenance (fluids, filters, plugs, belts, blades and hoses). Did replace radiator last year(an easy self-install for $100). Just last month was first major problem - oil pump died and engine fried. Replaced it with a used moter that had 79K and while everything was apart replaced the clutch, water pump, belts and she's ready for the road again. I guess the A/C, CV joints and power windows are eventually due to fail, but so far so good.

Favorite Features

Obviously the reliability of the car has been absolutely phenomenal, always 30 to 35 mpg's and safe, sporty handling to boot (very smooth 5-spd tranny). Almost the same experience with a 1991 Accord. Honda built some outstanding cars in the 90's.

Suggested Improvements

My only beef with this car has been the quality of paint - too much fading and wearing - and the cheap, sun glazed plastic headlamp covers. Guess south Texas summers are rough on these things.
