1993 Honda Civic LX 1.8 from North America
The most reliable car you will ever own
When I first got the car I stalled out during a thunderstorm and flooded the engine. A day after pulling and drying the car out it turn over and I drove it to work. Long story short, the engine blew. The extended warranty I bought replaced the engine with a used one with 30, 0000 miles on it. It's the same engine to this very day.
I use this car mainly for work. I put several hundred miles on it every week. After 240,000 miles it still runs like a champ.
I had the timing belt replaced at around 140,000.
The clutch at 210,000.
The AC Evaporator at 190,000.
I still get 28 - 32 MPG depending on my driving.
I got in a car wreck a few weeks ago and totaled the front end. Did I buy a new car? Heck, no! I got it fixed and repainted and the thing still rocks! Except of course - it now looks like new!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
