1993 Honda Civic LX 1.5 gas from North America
Everything it's supposed to be... and for a LONG time!
Nothing much. Despite being the ORIGINAL A/C, it was not quite blowing cold enough at idle on hot days. Had it converted to new freon and recharged 3 weeks ago, and they said that the compressor was on its last legs. After almost 20 years, if that's all that has gone wrong, so be it!
I do NOTHING to this car but change the oil, and it runs great. It needs shocks/struts, a timing belt (if you replace these every 80,000 miles or so, these cars will last FOREVER), and some ball joint, but it runs great as my daily driver.
GREAT car. I bought it with 130,000+ miles on it, and have driven it across 3-4 states regularly without concern. I get 30-33 around town (depending on how much the air conditioning is used), and have gotten 41 on the highway.
EVERYTHING I have replaced on this car - brake pads, tuneup parts, etc., is cheap! Small, but if you need reliable, affordable transportation, you can't go wrong with these little cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
