1997 Honda Civic Coupe EX 2dr Coupe


Review

Fell in love with car from moment saw
and first drove it.Searched for Hondas
due to reliabilty and high fuel
ecomony. This car is great for city
and/or suburbia. Love having a manual
but soon give up sadly to a condition
that allows me to drive automatic at
maximum. I intend to find another
Honda. I had to replace muffler,due
to the large amount of erosion caused
in Chicago winters, and an unavoidable
pothole/debris incident (Chicago
streets ;-{ hurt radiator but the new
one will outlast the engine YEARS from
now if possible. I adore paying so
little in comparison once every 2
weeks for gas even for a job that
requires me to drive daily!


Best Features

Fuel economy, Moonroof, multi-cd changer, RELIABLE, and roomy yet looks sporty/compact.


Worst Features

More oompf while driving the highest mountains! A little quiter, but I tend not to notice due to music, news or on the backroads.

1997 Honda Civic Coupe HX 2dr Coupe


Review

There are cars that get better fuel economy
(but only a handful that seat four people),
and there are more powerful cars, but only
the HX delivers 115 HP in 2324 lbs with fuel
economy over 40 MPG. The best of
efficiency and reliability. A liitle noisy due to
lack of sound deadoning material (which
saves weight).


Best Features

Fuel economy, light tossable handling and zippy performance in a very reliable car.


Worst Features

A little quieter

1997 Honda Civic Coupe HX 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned 2 new civic. The first
civic lasted for 221,000 miles in 10
years. My second civic has 160,000
miles on it in 7 years and does not
show any signs of slowing down. They
are and were worth more to me than the
sticker price I paid for them.
Reliability is the best feature of the
civic. They are not the fanciest
vehicle out there but they cover every
base very well for the everyday person
or the traveling type.


Best Features

Good power, great gas millage, easy to drive, reliable starting-stopping and just about everything in-between


Worst Features

More reliable power window mechanics could have been used. My HX (115 HP) could have used the 160 horsepower engine that came out the following year under the Si lable.
