1994 Honda Civic EX 1.6 litre VTEC from North America
Best car ever
The biggest problem I have is with rust; the darn thing is rusting everywhere, so go to Florida (or somewhere with no salt) to avoid this.
The exhaust seems to rust out every 2 years. Besides that, all I've had to replace are the radiator, distributer cap, and the A/C, which was broken when I bought it.
This car is resiliant and more reliable than many newer cars.
Pros: Highly reliable and attractive looking car. I got a black coupe with tinted windows, a Vtec engine, and a 5 speed for $3,200.00, and thought I was the luckiest man alive.
I'm about to graduate from college and thought of upgrading to a BMW or Mercedes, but I don't think I could let the car go. It's no Porsche, but it can keep up with traffic easily.
I love the exhaust tone and the interior is classy and still contemporary. The car looks new to this day, and people have asked if it's a 2001.
The mileage is the best part, and I can get everywhere without losing half of my pay cheque at the pump.
For value, a '92-'95 Civic will look good, perform well, and is cheap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Agreed. decent cars. If you want a BMW then go for a late 90's 3 series coupe :)

I also have a 1994 Honda Civic Si coupe, it is extremely reliable. Mine has a few modifications as well, such as full exhaust system, header, intake, and reflashed computer (speed limiter removed), short shifter, and lowered 2 inches plus many other suspension modifications.
The car makes 125 horsepower stock, maybe 135 now if I'm lucky. I think that your statement about being faster than new Sis is absurd, a new Si has 197 hp, and runs 14.9 in the quarter mile. My car with those modifications plus good driver pulls off a 16.0 quarter mile time. Stock is (16.6). Unless you're talking about newer Sis such as 1997 models that have the exact same engine but heavier body. The only way you are faster than a new Civic Si.. is if you have swapped the engine with an Integra vtec engine such as a b18c. Or you have a turbo or supercharger.
