"I paid 15 hundred for this car three months ago. guy hide that the head gasket was bad leaked oil all over. but I fixed it. I originally bought this car for the gas mileage and it is great on gas it gets about 34 miles a gallon. I have had good offers to sell it to many people but once I fixed it I realized I didn't want to get rid of it due to the fact that I blew a 4.6 thunderbird off the road with it and I only have a 1.6 liter VTEC engine. I have all ways owned American made but now I love honda"
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable but I'm 6'4""

"I still own my 95 Honda Civic Dx, I have only 105,000 miles on the odometer because it was a secondary car. This winter it went from secondary to primary. This car has never let me down! In all the blizzards we had this year, the -20 degree weather, never even hesitated. All I did was keep up with routine maintenance. I get close to 40 mpg because it's a 5 speed. I do not plan on selling this car anytime soon. Just can't seem to part ways with it. Why don't they make them like this anymore?!"
"Bought this in '02 for $8K with 74K miles on it.
My Civic has NEVER failed to start in the harshest New England weather. All maintenance was what you would do to any car. Repairs are relatively inexpensive, and parts are always available.
Of all the cars I've owned in my 60 years, this Civic EX is the most fun of all. Even as old as mine is, every time I drop behind the wheel and fire her up I'm looking forward to the experience. 12 years running, 160,000 miles later, and the anticipation is always fresh...possibly the best car ever..."
Pros: "Best gas mileage I've seen, smooth standard tranny"
Cons: "small car with little inside space"

"I love the standard transmission in this car. While not the most powerful engine, the car does a decent job of accelerating quickly from a stop. If you like customizing, this car has several aftermarket options available. The greatest thing about this car is the 45 mi/gal highway and 35 mi/gal city! One time I even clocked my car as getting 50 mi/gal. I've seen motorcycles with less fuel efficiency! I would definitely suggest this car to someone who is learning standard for the first time, or to someone looking for an inexpensive vehicle with great fuel economy!"
