Best car I've ever owned, period.
By NWTransplant on


1997 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan


I've had mine since 3,300 miles and
couldn't be happier. No reliability
issues whatsoever. Built like a fine
Swiss watch. Follow the maintenance
schedule according to the owner's
manual (as I do) and the car reward you
with amazingly trouble-free motoring.
If deprived of my Civic, I would
immediately seek another one just like
it with no hesitation. It's like a
premium motorcar in a smaller, less
expensive package.

Best Features

Where to begin?! Fuel economy (32 average even with lots of city miles), smooth ride, responsive and fun to drive, antilock brakes on this model, roomy interior and trunk, easy to maneuver in traffic, great Honda dealer service. Car feels like it will last for decades.

Worst Features

Increase wheel size from 14 to 15 inches to cut down on body roll in corners, more torque for swifter launching from a stop, and scrap the cupholder which blocks useage of the CD player. That's IT.
