1996 Honda Civic GLi D16Y4 - 1.6L 4 cylinder SOHC 16v from Australia and New Zealand
The most fun $1500 car I've ever driven
Rear left wheel bearing started failing - making lots of noise.
Burned about 500mL of oil a fortnight.
Crunched into third gear, even with the clutch fully depressed.
Surprisingly fun to drive, and can cop a beating. Flogged it while I owned it, smashing into the 7500rpm limiter on a daily basis, and it never missed a beat. Liked to drink some oil, but that was it. Handling was funny... turn in, it would initially hesitate, then turn and violently swing the tail end out. Made me laugh each time.
Great cheapie beater, which is what I used it for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
