1989 Honda Civic DX 1.4 5 speed from North America
A great deal
My head gasket blew at 125,000 miles. Cost $500 to replace, besides that it has been great.
The seats are hard as rock.
Cannot move the steering wheel up or down, not a car for tall people.
I love my Honda DX and I plan to keep this car until it dies.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I purchased my 4-door '89 Honda Civic DX new and have driven it for 11 years without any trouble. I am a big man: 300+ and 6-2. I have found the car comfortable and extremely well designed. Everything is where you'd expect it to be. At 100K miles, I'm looking forward to another 100K or forever. Of all the Honda's I think the '89 Civic has the nicest lines. Five years ago I was hit in the right front axle while traveling 40 mph and walked away with skinned knuckles only. After $4K repairs by insurance company, car still drives great. I won't part with it. I see a lot of cars, this make and model and the freeways of So-Cal. Presently I'm looking for another one for my wife.
