1998 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan


I don't have too many positive things
to say about this car. I bought the
car to get a reliable, high mileage, AT
car. The car has always gotten low
mileage (25/31) in mixed driving.
Never higher than 32mpg in 100%
Interstate travel. The trunklid is a
guillotine despite the installation of
a special spoiler-supporting trunklid
torsion element. The exterior paint is
eggshell fragile. Alternator was
warranty replaced at 10K miles.
The '92 Saturn SL I owned for 10yrs.
was a better car than this one. We
bought the Honda for it's glowing
reputation, and based on my experience,
I have to wonder how it was ever

Best Features

Relative reliability; basic mechanicals are good (outside of alternator). Potentially high re-sale value.

Worst Features

Improve gas mileage. Improve trunklid torsion element. Improve paint.
