Faults:

I traded this in for my last civic; it was a 92 LSi 1.5, which broke the timing belt tensioner.

About a month after getting the car, it started cutting out; the fault was a worn distributor and rotor; easily fixed. Other than that, it has worked very well.

General Comments:

Hondas are very good cars. This is my second Civic, and I will probably drive Civics for the rest of my life.

Summary:

Lemon

Faults:

Radiator replaced one week after buying it. gearbox grinds in reverse and 3rd rust is everywhere sticky gearbox hard to get from 1st to second gear.

General Comments:

Very poor performance acts like an turbo doesn't take off until it reaches 2300rpm beneath that it hardly moves.

If anyone has any idea why my car acts this way please tel me I can't afford to go to an mechanic.

A thirteen year old car can hardly be described as a lemon. 172000 Kl when you got it? Previous owners have had the best out of this car before you. You only get a lemon if you by a new or nearly new car and it turns out wrong then that's a lemon.
