1992 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


The car has great handling and great
gas efficiency, but man where's the
accelerating?? This car chokes on
hills, and when you need power the
Civic won't give it. I've floored it
once and the engine started making a
loud noise but my car still didn't go
fast. Overall it's a good car if you
drive like a grandma (if you don't
accelerate much) so it'll save you a
lot of money on gas. But on the other
side, it can be very frustrating
driving with barely any acceleration.
Of course you could always do stuff to
it to make it faster, but then I would
rather just buy a more expensive car
with more horsepower and torque.

Best Features

fuel efficiency, handling, reliability (even though I just spend $700 in repairs at 83k miles, like the other guy above my distributor cap was busted and the relay was messed up).

Worst Features

MORE HORSEPOWER!!! BETTER ACCELERATION!! Also a more sturdy distributor
