Great commuter car
By theron on


1997 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Besides looking like grandma's car, this is one dependable vehicle. No major problems in 13 years - new brakes, rotors, tires, 3 new mufflers, and 1 new tailpipe. My friends beg me to sell it to them for commuting. Avg 27 mpg. No sports car but re-li-a-ble. I've had 2 Chrysler vans since 03 for my wife and am about to find a 3rd. Switching to a Honda van due to the reliability of this car and the junk from Chrysler!

Best Features

Worst Features

exhaust was the only area of poor reliability/quality - replaced it 3 times. but i did that myself and I'm no mechanic.
