1998 Honda Civic 1.4iS 1.4 from Norway
A fair buy
No faults to date.
Very smooth engine, with little power at lower revs, but fun from 4,500 to 7,000 RPM.
Driving position nice when adjusted carefully.
Good braking - anti blocking system (ABS) effective even on sheet ice.
Power steering has unpleasantly little feedback - the one point that would probably stop me buying another one.
Quite a lot of tyre noise.
The 3 door model looks nice and gets lots of complements even from younger drivers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
