1991 Honda CRX DX 1.6L from North America
Best car ever
Caliper went recently, 230,000 on the body.
Driver seat wore a small hole on the side of the back rest.
I LOVE my CRX. It is a 1991 DX.
It had 226,000 miles on the body when I got it. Minor body work was done. I believe it was in an accident previously.
The guy I bought it from replaced the front axle and swapped the original 1.5L with a D16y7 motor, which I couldn't be happier with (unless it was turbo ;-) ).
It is very compact, short and wide, which gives excellent handling. I have had no engine trouble whatsoever. Very little maintenance is needed. I have owned it for over a year and only had to replace a ball joint and a caliper.
I have put 6,000 on it only driving it in spring and summer. I really couldn't be happier with this car. Anyone who is looking to get one shouldn't even think twice. With just an exhaust you could keep up with most 6 cylinder cars. I am very conservative when I drive it because I would be devastated if I wrecked it or blew the engine, although sometimes you just gotta have fun.
I am selling it very soon only because I am moving to where there is a lot of snow, and it is too much of a pain owning two cars, especially in New York State.
I can't believe how nice the interior is especially for the year. Seriously one of the best cars ever made in my opinion and many others'. Very stylish and sporty in looks and handling. Great on gas, exceptionally dependable. If I had the time, I would drive across the country for the rest of my life in it.
I wish Honda would do what Chrysler did with the Challenger and come back with a new one resembling the old one. The new Civics are nice and all, but they would really have to go back to the original style if they were to make a new CRX. I love the rear end. It is sexyyyy. I would think Honda would come up with a cooler new front end if re-manufactured.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
