I bought my 200 SE-R new in 1996. I love the way it drives, the excellent gas mileage, moon roof and durability. Although I had a 4 cyl, because of the engine it felt like a 6. Later I had my son, as he became older he enjoyed pressing the seat release to help him get in and out of the back. I later had to sell it in 2006 with 185,000 miles due to transmission. However, I think that came from letting other people drive it. I was sad to see it go, but thankful for giving me 10 great years as my first car.

My first love, I haven't been the same since the accident. Advice to SE-R owners, take care of them. My favorite Civic eater, the performance is superb, the handling is great, and the potential is astonishing. Out of all my cars this was the greatest buy.

I am 16 years old and this is my second car (My first was a '92 Jetta). My parents gave it to me when they got a new car. I am in love with this car. It gets great gas mileage, and has some good power. It accelerates like a monster. I also love how rare this car is. I have traveled from Florida to Michigan and back multiple times and I have only seen 2 or 3 others. I'm really looking forward to getting a job soon and dropping some money into this thing. This car is definitely very fun to drive. It's extremely comfortable and its power can really surprise people. Like many others have said, its only real flaw is the cupholders, which are placed in a really bad spot, and pretty small.

This vehicle has spoiled me. I'm afraid
to get another car because I love this
one so much. If I weren't 6'6" I'd keep
this car forever.
If you get one, check and make sure the
recall on the winshield wipers was done.
If not just take it to a dealership and
voila!! No hassles.
I life in Upstate NY and the vehicle is
GREAT in the snow. Tires make a big
difference but I get lazy and don't like
to plow, Snowcat (my name for her) plows
right through for me.
I have bottomed out a few times, LOTS of
potholes where I'm from. I don't see
that as a fault of the vehicle, just
something to keep in mind.
looking I know. I also liked the mid-late 90's 200SX which was basically a Sentra sport model at the time with different back end styling than the base model Sentra's at the time. Yeah it was conserv...
