1998 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


My Civic is the Australian GLi model. She had made it to 185,000 km before a complete moron took it out in an accident. 60 kph front on and I got out with a scratch to the knee. In the three years she was with me, I had not one breakdown or a time that she didn't start. I did many road trips, in hot Australian Summers, anywhere up to 10,000 km a trip. I've often got fuel usage down to 5.5 L per 100 km as well, highway. I'll miss her, and will likely end up buying another Civic. :(

Best Features

Reliability, looks, handling, fuel consumption.

Worst Features

Fair amount of road noise, but this is a trade off from being light weight. Also, Honda Australia needs to look at its part pricing. Much more expensive than everywhere else.
