I have owned my Civic for 5 years now, and have just under 55,000 miles on it. The only repairs I have had to make were the radiator (which is plastic), and the blower fan quit at 25,000 miles. My son has the same year and model and his blower fan went bad as well. The metal shaft on the blower motor gets hot and melts the plastic fan.
Good gas mileage, reliable and fun to drive.
The body could use an update, very boxy looking for a sporty car.
