1993 Honda Civic CX 1.5 from North America
Excellent little car, nothing better in my opinion!
Nothing! I bought it for a measly $340, and have not had to do a single thing.
It came with some receipts for work done, and it has had everything looked after that is common on these cars.
Treat this car good, and drive normally, and just use it like it should be used. It is an economy car, not a race car. I would not rev it up very high, as I prefer to just drive where I need to go, and take care of it.
The cabin room up front is kinda cramped, but the hatchback has a lot of room and a cool little tailgate. I love the hatch area.
It's like a 2wd SUV go-cart. It can take more cargo than a lot of full size sedan's, and is rated as the second best car for fuel mileage. Even the diesel car's do not get as good of fuel mileage. Best car going for economy, and you won't lose anything on depreciation either. It very well may just go up in value if you keep it maintained.
Excellent car, I recommend to anyone that is practical and needs a car to go from A to B.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Original comment poster. car is still running great. I found the "performance" muffler was not to blame for the noise. Instead it had a small hole from rust, and only had 1 bolt holding the muffler pipe on where they bolt together in the rear section. I still plan to replace with stock muffler and I already purchased a stock muffler at the auto recyclers for $7.95, nothing fancy just a clean, solid stocker.
Clutch is good, no leaks at all, needs an oil change soon.
I got used mag rims in 15" size and sold the 14" mags for same price. Still into it for under $400 and been driving it for nearly 2 months. Starts up always, but does rev up and down when nearing normal operating temperature. The revs will go from 1500 to 2000 to 900 to 1500 and over again for about 1 minute until she reaches temp. High idle works good, just seems to get stuck when it is nearing being warmed up, once warmed up it doesn't do it at all. Leave it sitting for 4 hours after a short drive, hop in and yes it will do it again. No problem to me.
Still very happy with it and would buy another one in a second for parts when I find one cheap.
I plan to stick to these cars for awhile, can't beat the gas mileage. I'm happy. Have fun.
