1994 Honda Civic CX 2dr Hatchback


Build quality is better than my mother's
2003 Corolla, and the only problems ive
had are some leaky gaskets and the front
axles. The engine is unbreakable - im
sure ive overrevved it more than a few
times in its 244,000 km and it still
pulls as well as it ever did if not
better. Only flaw right now is that it
has a bit of an erratic idle, but I
think its a voltage issue. I have the
DX engine (i checked the numbers on the
motor - it's the 102 hp variant) so it
feels like a 9 sec car, and it will
laughably dust V6 Camaros and mustangs.

Best Features

Clutch and shifter action are comparable to new sports cars. Unbreakable driveline (still original clutch). Fishtails nicely if you lift-throttle around corners. Stops on a dime. Good highway stability. The most reliable car ever built. Tons of interior room.

Worst Features

Front wheels hop around if there is a molecule of moisture on the tires. You will get stuck and hung up on snow. Needs beefier CV joints and boots - make sure you replace your boots every year. Si model addresses everything other complaint :).
