1995 Honda Civic DX 1.6 VTEC d16z6 from North America
Very reliable sardine can
This car is a junkyard zombie, so it's needed some work. I have replaced the alternator, timing belt, and a few front end things. Exhaust and suspension are due.
Some kid or the junkyard put 15" rims on it, which makes the tires cost 2x as much. Want to go back to steelies this year.
Kind of underpowered, but the VTEC motor is awesome. If something happens to the car, I would keep the engine. I am honestly expecting the engine to go at least another 150,000-200,000 miles. The body will probably be rusted away by then.
I don't like the ride of the bigger 15" rims, and the seats are uncomfortable for long trips. But I plan to change those things and drive this car hundreds of thousands more miles. It is very reliable and gets around 30 MPG. Most reliable car I've ever owned.
I also have the solar panel in the back window to trickle charge the battery all the time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
