1999 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

Well, The '99 Si was my first brand new car. I was driving an '87 Prelude Si. When I first test drove it, I felt that the prelude was snappier. i then decided to try a theory. Since the Civic had an entirely different RPM range, I changed the RPM where I was shifting and it became another beast. I bought the car that day.


Favorite Features

- 8,000RPM Redline - 160HP at the wheels and under $18,000 - Aftermarket parts everywhere - It's a Honda..


Suggested Improvements

- The seats suck compared to my old Prelude on long trips. - Can you say no torque with out Jackson Racing Supersharger!!! -Ditch the Michelins XGT's and try some Yokohama AVID V4 tires. -Use a K&N air filter and cut out the resinator from the air intake. VTEC likes air.

1999 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

This is an excellent car. Performance and reliability are well above par. The absence of torque is a dissapointment, however the horsepower makes up for it. Very fun to drive. Very reliable, never had a big problem and with over 60K miles


Favorite Features

High reving. Appearance is excellent. Good suspension and steering.


Suggested Improvements

Seats, not alot of hold. More torque!!! A stronger clutch would help too.

1999 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

I really enjoyed driving my Si. The only problem I had was a bad strut. This car is very popular with thieves so if you buy one be sure to put an alarm on it. Check the vin to make sure that the car you are looking at is really an Si. Mine was stolen twice and both times the Si specific features were taken.


Favorite Features

The V-TEC pulls strongly.


Suggested Improvements

This car needed ABS and better tires suitable for driving in the rain.

1999 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought a new HX in '99. Today with 32k miles its been in the shop 5x w/ transmission failure. The CVT tranmission has been replaced 2x and has been flushed out 3x. Honda can't fix it, every 6000-8000 miles it fails. At an intersection when the light turned green it went into reverse when it was in DRIVE. On the free-way it jerks when it changes gears. A CVT trans is supposed to have smooth gear shifting. The new '03 HX has the same CVT transmission. A Honda service advisor said these problems are starting to show up around the country with the HX. There is no fix, Honda engineers are going to ponder over it and get back to me.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage and power.


Suggested Improvements

TRANSMISSION!

1999 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Review

It is not too bad car even though it's noisy, less powerful. I surprised when I sold my civic at a higher price than I thought last month. That's a good experience. I just bought a 2003 toyota corolla. I really don't know corolla is such a good car before. I strongly suggest you trade your civic with this one if you want to change.


Favorite Features

sporty style. good resale value


Suggested Improvements

more quiet and power.

1999 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


Review

I own a 5 speed, DX Model, with AC installed by Dealer. I have not had one issue/complaint in my 3 years of ownership. The only maintenance costs have been oil changes & brake pads (Boston Driving). Tires are Bridgestone and have worn pretty well. They are due for a change in the next 3- 5K miles, giving them a life of 50K. The car has made numerous trips between MA, NY, & OH and is very comfortable to drive. It reminds me of my old 85 Toyota Camry 5 spd. Performance and reliability have so far been equivalent. Cost of ownership vs value is great, especially if you capitalize on Honda's periodic reduced financing incentives for Civics.


Favorite Features

Trunk space for a compact car. Multiple golf clubs fit perfectly.


Suggested Improvements

Add hooks for childseat restraint strap. Make front cup holders adjustable/deeper.

1999 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had my Civic for three years. I have had no trouble with it at all. I am very impressed with the quality of the car. I have 65000 miles and still get great gas mileage, the engine sounds great, and it still looks new. I would buy another Honda in a heartbeat!


Favorite Features

Large trunk. Quick acceleration. Great build quality.


Suggested Improvements

Variable Speed Intermittent Wipers. Electronically controlled seat adjuster.
