1999 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe


I bought this vehicle in a hurry and
drove across the country in it. It is
reliable, efficient, and I get a lot of
compliments on it! Being a coupe, it is
small and a bit cramped when traveling,
and being a four-cylinder, it doesn't
handle steep hills very well--you have
to keep it in a pretty low gear to
retain or gain speed. But the only
service it's required has been a
different thermostat because I live in
southern Arizone. Sometimes the gears
are a little stubborn, but maybe it's
just me... I also like its interior
design...it is attractive and has lots
of cubby holes to store cd's, cell
phone, wallet, etc.

Best Features

I like the cloth interior design, and I like the armrest-compartment between the front seats. And I love the classic- Honda low dashboard...this feature is probably a big reason that I bought this and my previous Honda (Accord). I like the "lip" on the trunk and the newer "font."

Worst Features

It needs more torque!!! Also, my cupholders are not deep enough and don't allow smaller cups/cans/bottles to be placed there without constantly tipping over. I would like to see updated headlights and taillights as optional or standard on newer Hondas.
