Civic in Crisis
By Atlanta Zach on


1992 Honda Civic CX 2dr Hatchback


Purchased as my first car, my Civic may
have to be retired pretty soon.
Purchased at 92k miles, currently
150k , it seems pretty young, esp. for
a Honda. I've had radiator flushed,
and checked (along with hoses) for
leaks, had the thermostat replaced
three times in two months, no coolant
leakage, overheats regularly. Due to
nearly non-existent residual value I'm
going to buy a replacement and tear it
down to attempt a ressurection. It
HADn't given me many problems the
entire time I owned the car even with
sometimes inconsistent maintenance. I
would recommend the model to a
potential buyer but beware overheating

Best Features

Holds more storage than its small body lets on. With a manual transmission the car has plenty of power for most applications due to low weight. Cute body creates warm fuzzy feelings. LOOONG cruising gearing (102 in 3rd).

Worst Features

I've met several others with the same overheating problem online in cars of varying model years. If that one problem would stop I would drive this car indefinitely (until another chronic or terminal problem came up)
