1996 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe


Review

I am the 2nd owner of this family car, and I love it's reliability. It is not by any means a "performance" car however it is still very fun to drive and with 160,000 miles I am stil extremely happy, not to mention 40 mpg!


Best Features

Rims, interior seats, ease of modification


Worst Features

Outside red moldings and mirrors, disc brakes all around.

Review

So far so good, Had to take into the shop for muffler work and a problem with the intake, but besides that it been a good little car. 96000 miles and still runs great, only problem is that it does hesitate when pushing the gas to merge. Can be scary at times. Looks great on the outside and the inside is not bad. Fun car. Hopefully it will treat me good, and still has a decent resale value.


Best Features

Outside looks, and its reliability


Worst Features

Wish if I press the gas it will go, but hesitates alot right now.

1996 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Over the past 6 months I had this car it
drives nearly flawless in every way. Of
course since it was used I had to do
some minor repairs(New battery, realign
rear bumper, swap lightbulbs) To this
day I am still very pleased with this car.


Best Features

Small and compact yet enough room to fit 4 grown adults. Gas mileage a big PLUS.


Worst Features

D16Y7 engine, which makes the car weak. Needs to be replaced by the B16A SiR II Engine at 170 HP. Also interior should be wood trim or metal... not crappy plastic.

Review

CV joints going bad, muffler rusted out
at the axle (seems very common on
civics), clutch is wearing out(prior
driver possibly). My biggest complaint
is that it has hesitated for almost a
year with no check engine light. It's
been in the shop numerous times with no
luck. Not very pleased with the "Honda
quality". Will be buying Toyota next round.
