1997 Honda Civic Coupe DX 2dr Coupe


Review

The only problem I had, was the radio &
CD player. The CD player is a 6-CD
changer in trunk. The connecting cable
becomes loose at the radio & makes the
CD player fade in & out. This has been
repaired 4 times & is now starting to
act up again. The rest of the car has
been great.I realy like the fuel
economy, it averages 42-HWY. 33-CTY.
Also the AC will freeze even the hottest
person.


Best Features

See review above. Also very low mant. cost


Worst Features

See review above about the RADIO & CD PLAYER

Review

I really enjoy my car. I am a
teenager and loved the look of the
car. I have been driving it for over
2 years and love it. I like the look
so much better than the newer one, and
the gas mileage is great. Its a great
car.


Best Features

Dependability, gas mileage, the fact that it doesn't have power steering makes the driver feel more in touch with the car and more in control.


Worst Features

More power! But if wanting more power, you have to trade the great gas mileage. If getting manual, you have more of a get-go in the lower gears.

Review

I've had my car for 7 years now, and
I'm just looking to sell it and get a
new honda. The only recall this car
has ever had was with the floor mats -
seriously. I still manage to get 30-34
MPG. Still handles very well, and I'm
only now starting to hear some rattles -
mostly in the driver's door - and that
is because i've had issues with my
windows. my cousin, and my best friend
also have similiar style honda civics
and have experienced the same problem -
the windows fall off track or get
stuck. you can fix it yourself pretty
easily, but i had my mechanic do it for
$50 and the window works great now.
thats my only complaint.


Best Features

gets me from point a to point b on time, and cheaply. if you take care of this car, it won't let you down.


Worst Features

fix the window problem

Review

I bought my Civic when it was a year
old and have loved it every day
sense. I moved to Hawaii and could
not part with it, so it took a cruise
over and made it fine. I've never had
a problem with it, outside of the
driver's side window getting stuck
last year (although this may have to
do with after-factory tint I had put
on at that time) and this was easily
fixed. I wish it had more power going
up mountains, but it is worth it to
have the awesome gas mileage (30 - 34
mpg even with city driving). I love
my car and have not once regretted
this purchase. It has never let me
down.


Best Features

Everything in the Civic makes sense from where the controls are to the fuel economy to having plenty of room for you and your adult friends without being cramped. It drives just as great now as it did when I bought it. I don't know of any other car that is so cool, yet so dependable.


Worst Features

This is a cool car and others may want your car too. I had a break-in after my move, and was told Civic parts from different years are interchangable and expensive so there's a market for it in certain areas, so get an alarm.
