1997 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Honda has a long-standing tradition of
producing vehicles that are extremely
reliable, well-built, and fun to drive. My 97
Civic LX sedan is no exception. Purchased
by the original owner in 10/2001, I've only
had to replace the battery. The original
owner is also a family friend, and with
regulary scheduled maintenance, the
battery is the only thing that has EVER
needed to be replaced. After six years and
85,000 miles, the car still looks and drives
like new; no rattles, rust, interior wear - this
car was built to last.

Best Features

Nice interior ergonomics; good headroom, firm seats. The factory radios are produced by Alpine and provide excellent sound (with the right speakers) and functions as a CD- changer controller.

Worst Features

Like all subcompacts (and many Hondas), it is significantly underpowered. Lack of 4- wheel ABS.
