Reliable, efficient, fun to drive -
roomier than earlier Civics. The car
is perfect for the daily drives, trips
to the store, school, work, etc. The
driver has the most fun, especially
with the 5 speed. Love that 2nd gear.
BUT, not the best car for long trips.
Noisy with a firm, busy ride. It'll
storm a long at 85, but you can't hear
the radio, and the old backside begins
to tire too quickly from feeling every
wrinkle in the asphalt.
5 speed transmission - but really needs
a 6th gear to help with noise on the
freeway. Reliability - Super gas
mileage. I've massaged 40+ mpg in city
driving by using every technique
6th gear - overdrive ratio. Some kind
of variable suspension. Better wind
