Summary:

Why O why did they stop making it!?

Faults:

Weeping rear brake cylinder.

Broken return spring in rear brake hub.

General Comments:

Honda CRX, accept no substitute.

Keeps revving all the way to 7000, and loves it.

18 years old (the car that is!), but on every drive out in it I get to put the boy racers with the GTI's in their place, not to mention the "I'm richer than you" old boys in their Mercs.

The CRX goes where you point it and loves to please.

This car is for the corners and zipping in and out of light traffic.

I've lost count of the egos the CRX has left flopping and writhing in it's wake around Spain.

All this for just 1500 Euros!

Even if you do get 'taken (twice at over 185kmph, but on the motorway, this is not a long legged motor)...hey... it's an 18 year old car! No shame in that!
