1996 Honda Civic DX 2dr Hatchback


In 2nd month, window got stuck after
paying toll on NJ Turnpike, had to
drive the next 90 miles in freezing
cold with wide open window.
Afterwards, there was a big wind noise
on the driver side window. The
hatchback rattled all the time.
Everytime the car went in for an oil
change, I had service guy check it
out. Every time he claimed it was
fixed. It came back again. The AC
broke down in the first summer. With
skinny tires, the car changed lanes on
its own whenever there's strong cross
wind. Little power. Dealer ate the
new car survey. Sold it after 3
years. Would never buy another Civic.
