Summary:

Excellent all- around vehicle.

Faults:

I put a new water pump.

Installed a new head gasket recently.

I put a new timing belt also.

The ball joints have gone bad.

General Comments:

The car is excellent for a first timer and a great car to hang around in.

The car does not consume much gas and the engine is quite peppy for the small displacement of 1490cc.

The interior of the car is made of great quality materials and with a lot of space, maybe even better than newer cars.

It has excellent handling and a great looking design making it a great for young enthusiast racers.

The car also has a lot of performance upgrades making it a very customizable car.

These cars are soon to be very sought after in the future.

So if you have one try not sell it unless you buy another Honda Civic!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
