Long time used civic owner
By jjefrench on
1999 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan
I have owned Honda Civics for 13 years.
My first one was a 1990 and now I have the 1999, which I have owned for 8 years.
It is a Civic LX automatic.
The mileage I had on it when I got it was 70,000.
Now there are 150,000.
I have spent more money on repairs for this car than the 6,500 it cost to purchase it.
I am angry at the car for this purpose.
At least three times something caused me to break down in the middle of the road.
I have treated it well and it has not been reliable.
I would love to sell it just because of the frustrations I have had over the years.
My advice is, if you buy a civic, make sure you know its history.
I did not know the history of this one except that it was a leased car.
I imagine those are not often treated for longevity by someone who knows they will be giving it back.
Once the fixes started, they didn't stop and it was always something new and strange.
