1997 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


I bought this car used with 89k miles a year and a half ago after totaling my 2004 Sunfire and I must say that this is probably the best car I've ever owned. Sleek styling, smooth ride, excellent gas mileage, and very reliable. It now has 136k miles and the only thing I've had to replace was a faulty starter at 119k miles, and a front bumper and fender after a collision at 125k. Repairs are rare but costly when needed. Car still looks and drives like new (no squeaks or rattles and everything still works) even after 136k miles and being wrecked, which says a lot about Honda products. If this car ever quits on me, which I doubt will be any time soon, I will definitely own another Honda.

Best Features

Suprisingly smooth ride for such a small car, outstanding fuel economy, styling still looks good after 8 years, very dependable, feels like a brand new car, lots of standard features for relatively low price(pw, pl, pm, ac, cruise control, 6 disc Alpine CD changer)

Worst Features

Could use a bit more horsepower....um....that's about it.
