1995 Honda Civic CX 4 cylinder from North America
Needs to be driven off a cliff and put out of its misery!!!
3, yes 3 head gaskets.
5 or 6 CV joints, I've lost count.
Brake rotors ALWAYS warp.
Engine refuses to idle correctly.
Ugly and gutless. Get triple A if you buy a Civic, you will need it. By far, the worst performing car I've ever owned or seen. Fix one thing, and behold more and more engine problems.
Sheet metal is too thin, hail damage numerous times.
Engine bogs down when accelerating, like a rubber band is holding the car back. Or is it from mosquitos? Beats me.
All in all, Honda Quality is way overrated, and I will NEVER make this mistake again!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have had a '95 Civic CX for 7 years and it has 246,000 miles on it and has had barely any repair work. It still runs great. The ignorant response by the postie must mean that he forgot to actually every get it fixed up.

I think you're the one that is ignorant in this case. I have a Honda Civic Coupe EX and have ALWAYS tuned it on time with oil changes every 3k religiously. However, I have come across the same problem, it just doesn't have the acceleration power needed and bogs down when trying to accelerate.

Acceleration is horrid in these cars, I test drove a few recently while looking for an economy car. With that in mind, acceleration is horrid for this economy car. My mother drives a 97 Altima, and with a bad transmission it will out accelerate a Civic. I do hear that 5sp Civics are quicker, and with good reason. In all fairness though, you can't expect performance if you are buying a Civic, you buy the car for economy and that is that. You want acceleration, get a Trans Am.

You obviously do not take care of your vehicles.

As per my G-Tech Pro my 95 Civic Si will do 0-60 in 8.8 seconds. Not too bad for what it is, a Civic.

Tuning up a car requires, a cap, plugs, and wires...

It doesn't help that it's a CX... should have sprung a little more to get a vtec engine; guarantee you would have had less problems...
