1985 Honda CRX HF 1.5L from North America
Awesome fuel economy, but still a 'real' car, with great reliability
Car would not stay running in cold weather, even with the choke adjusted rich. Rebuilt the carburetor, and still had problems idling, because of vacuum leaks at the throttle shaft. Bought a fully rebuilt Keihin carburetor, and now the car runs great, with much better fuel economy.
Driver's seat is worn through the bolster to the metal. Plan to install a used Del Sol seat.
Outstanding fuel economy. 55 mpg on the highway if I keep it below 65 mph, and 45 mpg all-around average.
Even though it's slow, it's fun to drive and easy to park.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
