1997 Honda Civic CX 2dr Hatchback


I purchased a 97 Honda Civic CX
hatchback with only 37,000 miles on
it. Within the first week, a sensor
and ignition coil both failed and the
car left me sit. The engine is
terribly underpowered. I spent $600
on new shocks/struts only to find that
the terrible ride quality had not
improved. The doors rattled and
interior noise was plentiful. NO
extras, not even lights in the glove
box or rear hatch. There are Hyundais
out there which look, feel, and run
better than that car did! I sold it
within a year and bought an 86 Subaru
which actually feels BETTER!
