1999 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


I bought it new in '99 and it continues to get the job done with only a few minor repairs along the way. It is not powerful but with a manual transmission it can get out of its own way. The lacks of power is made up for with MPGs. It is sporty for an economy car, looks good inside & out, and is well built-- it doesn't feel cheap. The folding rear seat makes it suprisingly useful, I can put my mountain bike in the back and even Home Depot trips. It's good in the snow with low torque & FWD- decent all season tires have gotten me through several bad NJ winters Drawbacks: wind & road noise, reverse hard to engage, weak A/C, takes forever to warm up in the cold, unsupportive seats

Best Features

Many standard features (pwr windows, doors, mirrors), fun to drive, great gas milage, sunroof, folding rear seat, styling, reliability, build quality excellent for a sub compact

Worst Features

I replaced my seats with Honda Del Sol seats, much better. Handeling can be impoved, I added: rear anti-roll bar (turns better), front strut bar (tighter steering), shocks & springs (firmer ride, less body roll), wheels & tires (more grip) Stereo is garbage and should be thrown away.
