"I bought this car used 8 years ago and now I'm trading up at 175,000 miles. I have had very few problems with the car.
My only issue is the fact that there is no "dinger"or sound that goes off when you leave your lights on so I have run my battery down at least a dozen times over the last 8 years. Other than that, no issues."
"gave it a b18c engine, mounted great little to no hassles and great car. before the engine swap. the engine when i took it out was more than perfect, just wanted a gsr engine ; ) so sold the 1.5L for $500 bucks. great car"
"I'm reluctantly trading in my 1994 Civic because we simply need more room. It has been the best vehicle I have ever owned by far. Aside from routine maintenance costs, I have put very little money into this car for repairs. It's so reliable and still runs great! This is the second Civic that I've owned, and naturally we're going with another Honda this time around."
"Ive owned my honda civic for 2 years now and it has over 220,000 miles. other than the cat going out i havent expierenced any problems. I drove a truck before the car and the gas mileage is so good its not an issue. i average 27-29 in town, mabye higher if id slow down. on the highway you can expect 35+ and thats with the high miles. Only flaw is the limited amount of room .if your a big guy or like to carry around passangers this may not be the car for you. It works for me in the sense that the gas mileage compensates for the comfort."
"Excellent car, would not buy anything but a honda. I bought this car with 115,000 miles from a one owner. I get awesome gas mileage ( with the air on ). I wish I could keep this car forever. It is my first car that my parents bought me on my 16th birthday, and I have had it for 2 years now.
Something common with the hondas is the rusting in the rear wheel well (around the back wheel). A helpful tip is to change the timing belt after every 60,000 miles, a honda dealership told me to make sure to do that. I love my civic and i wish i could keep it forever. :)"
"Excellent car, Runs great, reliable. Does not look like a lot a inside room but there is. It's a little bit hard to get into the back seat, but plenty of head room and leg room for all passengers. Great car!"
"I have enjoyed my little civic until someone hit me in the rear end.I have had it since she was born. NOw the insurance company is trying to give me nothing. She has 175,000 on orginial motor and was still going... Love her ..I will definately buy another one if I can find one cheap enough but in ex.. I like the power windows and locks 13 + years is along time to be with one car.. I love her and hate to see her go."
"I bought this car new, had it for 8 years, put over 200,000 miles on it and traded it in (for a CRV) only because my kids were getting too big to sit in the back seat. I changed the oil every 3000 miles and had regular maintenance done. This is the best car I've ever had. I wish now I had kept it for my daughter to drive. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. It got 40 mpg (with the air on). Not the fastest car around, but got me everywhere I wanted to go."
"i have owned numerous hondas over the years, and this one is like all the others: reliable, stylish, value-packed. i will not buy any other brand! i am getting in the mid-30's for gas milage around town. drives great in town and can hold its own on the highway too. a great car at a great price! if you can find one, buy it!!!"
