1992 Honda Civic ESi 1.6 VTEC
It has never had any problems with the engine. Only wearing parts have been replaced.
The biggest problem is rust, especially around the rear wheel arches. Furthermore, it has rust on the edges of the doors. One wheel arch rear was cut off and a new one was welded on in 2010. In 2015 the wheel arches have again become rusty; this is however because the car is used in a country with a lot of salting of the roads in winter.
Have had minor problems with the electricals; high beam stopped working due to broken wires.
I love the acceleration in lower gears; far more responsive than most cars. The "Baby VTEC" allows you to drive the gears at high RPM.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
