I agree seats are not padded enough, but for the way it sips fuel I'm not complaining.

I've had very comfortable big padded seats, but then I was paying $20CDN for 100kms

This car I just did 150KMS from full and the needle is still sitting on Full. I haven't had it long enough to judge but the rating site I found says 43MPG. Not sure what that is in KMS but I suspect 100KMS to cost below $5, possibly about $4 for 100KMS, which is about 4.2 liters per 100KMS. Gas here in Canada right now is approx.80 Cents a liter.

I love this little car, and it's beat up somewhat, but the money I save on fueling it, can go towards fixing it up. I think a tank of gas for $37 will last me 3-4 weeks of commuting to work and back. I was paying $20 a week with a 5.7 liter V8 that was rated at 13MPG. So I'm excited to drive a car that gets 43MPG now, I'm not going to miss having to stop for gas every 6-7 days. This is a car I won't even mind filling full. My last one I mentioned would cost about $100 to fill it full and would be gone in about 2 or 3 weeks. Possibly 4, but all I used it for was going to work and back home, occasional grocery shopping, and visits to family.

Oh that is right, I went to visit family that lives 40KMS 1 way. I put in $20 and when I got back home I had used the entire $20 worth of gas. So for $20 I got 80kms highway.

On hot days I have a hard time starting the car after I have driven for about 25-30 miles, I've heard that it is caused due to vapors accumulating in the gas pump.

It is a 5 speed man. trans.

Summary:

Reliable

Faults:

Other than the usual service on my car, the most disturbing thing to go wrong with the 1993 Honda Civic is that the body is falling apart. Rust continues to collect around the wheel wells and in the back quarter panel the rust has caused the bumper to hang down about 3-4 inches on one side.

General Comments:

Other than the cosmetic disintegration, this car is a champ! I have driven it hard the last 8 years and this car starts up with no problem EVERY TIME. I never worry about dependability or whether I will come out to a car that won't start. I am currently car shopping and am afraid of getting into a vehicle that will disappoint me because this car has treated me so well.

An Excellent Car

General Comments:

The 1993 Honda Civic LX is an extremely dependable automobile. I currently have ~236,000 miles on it and it's still going strong. I still gets about 35 mpg and maintenance costs have been minimal. What a car!

Not the most comfortable car on long road trips, but not too bad either.

Summary:

Great value for money!

Faults:

Been happy generally with the car, except for the air conditioning. I've basically changed everything except the compressor. (hopefully it will last longer).

Also, brake cylinder needed replacement after around 40,000kms.

Paint job is in excellent condition. Still on original paint and other OEM parts since day 1. No rust spots anywhere, despite my not having rustproofing.

General Comments:

Fantastic to drive and cheap to maintain. And it has never broken down on the road these past 12 years that I've owned it.

No rust anywhere. Although the interior could have been much better. I may finally change the seats, after a friend complained - it was a long 2 and 1/2 drive!
