Excellent Transportation, DON'T RACE!!!

Vehicle1993 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan
ReviewI purchased this vehicle at an auction
in February of 2002 for $775. The car
was rammed into a curb, then left to
die. I replaced the front passenger
side suspension.Honda's are so easy to
work on, didn't take more then a
weekend to get that replaced. I have
driven the car for 20,000 miles since,
so far I have only replaced the axels.
Handels well for the liberal suspension
setup. Easily take corners at 90.
Brakes have been acceptable, but not
great due to the rear drum
configuration. Trunk is well sized for
the car. Tank is too small. Blow motor
doesn't blow enough air. Car just needs
about 30 more horsepower.
Best FeaturesGreat visability, both front and rear. A/C works good. Excellent fit and finish. I actually made the mistake of taking it to the drag strip once. I was surprised to run a 17.4 @ 80.1 mph. Not too bad, but my car isn't stock, so its partially acceptable.
Worst FeaturesHorsepower. Desperate need for more of it. Brakes could be improved. Blow motor needs definatley more circulation. Suspension too sofly sprung in its stock form. Car is only enjoyable if pushed and runs great above speeds of 50 mph.
