"I had my 97 Civic for 5 1/2 years and I put so many miles on it. I had no problems with that car at all. It is a really good car and I will alway keep a honda in my driveway. 240k miles and still running great. Go Honda."
"I bought my '99 Civic LX used in 2005. Its certainly no frills (no keyless entry, sunroof, or CD player...I installed my own!) but I love it still. This car gets excellent gas mileage. I am laughing at all the gas-guzzling SUV drivers when I fill up at the pump. This car has given me no trouble, other than my muffler fell off soon after I bought. Got it reattached, and this car is good as new! My only complaint is that long car rides can get uncomfortable. The seats are not exactly the cushiest. However, I've never had a more reliable car...can't say the same for my last car, which left me by the side of the road on the coldest day of winter. Do yourself a favor and buy yourself a Civic."
