Few changes for Honda's popular subcompact. A complete redesign is expected for 1992.
Cost to DriveCost to drive estimates for the 1991 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan and comparison vehicles are based on 15,000 miles per year (with a mix of 55% city and 45% highway driving) and energy estimates of $3.11 per gallon for regular unleaded in Virginia.
If a better all around vehicle has ever been made that is accessible to the average person, tell me about it, ok? I can't remember what the mileage was when purchased, but it was over 200,000 and I wasn't the least bit concerned about it. We had just had some typical Iowa winter weather when I road tested its 4x4 capabilities and bought it then and there. I eventually put in a new … radiator, went through the clutch system entirely and had the suspension system bushings replaced. I have put well over the used purchase price into this vehicle without a single regret. With 240,000 miles and nearly 20 years old, it is a trusted daily driver.

Homely but sturdy and amazingly reliable
1991 Honda Civic 4dr Wagon
I bought a '91 Civic 5-speed stick
wagon for its reputation for
dependability, reliability and fuel
economy. It delivered well on all three
counts. Also very spacious for people
and cargo in the interior. Always ran
well and got me where I needed to go
without incident. I had it only a few
months and only sold it because I
desired something more stylish. I
learned … later never to part with
something this dependable. Makes first-
rate budget transportation with room.

1991 Honda Civic DX 2dr Hatchback
My brother-in-law gave me this car when he bought a newer car, an Accord. He always maintained it per Honda recommendations & had very few problems with it. I have only needed minor repairs since I've owned it. It has the typical rust problem that most hondas in Michigan have. I am impressed with the reliability of this car. It was built to be simple, reliable, & economical. By the way, … it has 584,000 miles on it as I write this review & it still runs good but the body will not hold out much longer. What more can I say?

I bought my new 1991 Honda Civic SI hatchback with cash way back then...
1991 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback
2012...Perhaps 20 years, 140k miles and $5k total so far over that entire time for non-consumable
repairs (CV boots, cracked engine mounts, etc.)
The original engine is still running fine.
It seems like every other year, I get a note left on my 1991 Honda Civic SI hatchback's windshield:
"Do you want to sell this as-is? Call me at xxx-xxxx"
