1991 Honda Civic DX 1.5 from North America
Great First Car or Starter Car!
CV Boot has had to be replaced twice in four years.
Axle was replaced at 150000, yet broke again.
Distributor and Ignition switch have gone bad three times in four years.
Radiator busted at 160000.
Master cylinder (works the brakes) going bad at 194000.
Air conditioner quit working at 147000.
Seats are firm, not soft.
No elbow room for larger people.
Transmission has started slipping after 190000.
This car can handle anything. I went from a 83 Firebird to this Honda and drive it like it is a sports car. It keeps up for the most part.
Dummy oil light works really well. I continuously ran this car low on oil (about 1 - 1 1/2 quarts in it) and the engine never blew!
Takes a licking, keeps on ticking.
Handles on curves really well.
Loves to go over 75 miles per hour.
Very fuel efficient!! When gas was under $1, full tank of gas costs approximately $8 - $9!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

When gasoline was $0.89 per gallon, you could spend eight or nine dollars and fill your tank in a Honda Civic dx, assuming you had a little bit of gas in the tank. If you have absolutely no gas in the tank, the sending unit in the gas tank will read below the empty line on the dashboard gas gauge.
It only has a 10 gallon tank so $8-9 makes perfect sense if gas is under $1.
