Here are the Pros:
This car is FAST! The VTEC engine is unbelievable. With only 125 hp, the Civic EX really pins you to your seat at 3000-5000 RPM.
This car is totally upgradable! There are so many after-market products out there for the '94 Civic EX! Just about anyone can trick-out this supposed "economy" car!
This car is TOUGH! I hit a late-80's model Chevy Cavalier with the Civic HEAD-ON, resulting in the Cavalier's front bumper being torn completely off. However, the Civic sustained only minimal damage. I replaced the front bumper molding and the hood just because the Cavalier-owner's insurance paid for it. The actual damage to the Civic consisted merely of a 4 inch crack in the bumper molding and a tiny dent (about the size of a silver-dollar) right below the Honda logo on the hood. This surprised me since the other car was so torn up. The '94 Civic is one tough car!
Both driver AND passenger airbags in a '94 "economy" car seem to be unheard of. However, the '94 Civic comes with both.
This is one sporty looking car! I love the sun roof. Even though it is 7 years old, it looks like a contemporary design - timeless!
Great fuel economy! Even though the EX is not the most fuel-efficient Civic model, it still gets around 30 miles/gallon. And that's even when I rev the engine a lot.
Now, the Cons:
The seats seem comfortable at first, but driving for two hours or more results in a totally numb posterior and an aching back.
The factory speakers are OK, but the interior moldings are kind of loose and rattle with the bass bumping.
Not much room in the back seat for passengers or cargo. I guess that this would be expected since the EX is a "Sport Coupe".
