"We purchased this car new in Feb. 1996 . The car still runs & drives great ! The things we replaced the most on it were the tires & exhaust ! Things we had to replace at 245,000 brake lines ,cv shafts ( both sides ) & believe it or not the rear brakes had just over 245,00 miles on them & the cv shafts had over 245,000 miles on them ( They were ORIGINAL ! ! ! ! The best thing I can tell you is to change your oil every 3000 miles & do the timing belt ,water pump & your tune ups !! This is my dads car & he is 62 & still drives it 60-100 miles a day .He gets in it and drives to Long Island & Maine , (he said the mileage does not scare him & he is getting 38 -41 mpg on the highway ! ! !"
"Great vehicle in every way. Fuel efficient. Easy to maintain and treats you right if you treat it right in return. Lovely lines. Much prefer this design which was changed after this year (2000). Can be flashy or understated. Surprising amount of oomph for a small engine, I think feels stronger than the Accord. Would recommend this vehicle particularly and Honda in general to anyone."
"How lucky am I? I bought a pre-owned Civic when gas prices started to rise. After driving a large SUV my gas mileage doubled, near 30 mpg. The savings paid for the car. Handlings great, fast, comfortable, but lots of road noise. Looks sporty."
