1996 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan


Why did they stop making cars like this? Underpowered fuel-sippers with lots of passenger and trunk space. Who cares if you can't take off fast? I'm getting 38mpg. This Honda is 13 years old and it's better than any car I've ever owned. Sure, it's got a few dings and scratches, and there's a little surface rust on the fenders, but that's to be expected when salt is sprayed on the roads all winter. The transmission's still tight and smooth, everything works, and it's the most reliable vehicle in my driveway. On a few occasions this winter it's been used to jumpstart two much newer vehicles on really cold mornings. This is definitely not my last Honda. It has 125,000 miles on it and runs great.

Best Features

Smooth manual transmission, great fuel economy, stable and predictable handling, light weight, big trunk, good rear legroom and headroom, remote trunk and fuel door release.

Worst Features

Go back to the 1.5L to save even more gas.
