Peppy sedan at 190k miles
By Tom Haws on


1991 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


Beloved wife and I have owned our 1991
white Civic "Pegasus" since 1992.
Along the way we have had trouble with
CV boots, the heater blower and
resistor switch, the rear driver side
door latch. In the past 4 years we
have spent $4000 on repairs to go about
50,000 miles. Not bad.

At this point, with 190,000 miles, it
isn't 100% reliable, but it is still a
zippy little car and very fun to drive.

Wish it had a clock and cup holders.

We bought a 1996 Accord yesterday to
replace it, but we will probably keep
it around a while just for old time's

Best Features

Fun to drive (small and peppy). Hates the gas pump. Clean auto transmission shifting.

Worst Features

Suspension is poor and noisy now that it's old. Power brakes seem weak in spite of repeated assurances from mechanics that all is well.
