Most reliable car ever by straycat sf on 05/29/2010. Trim: 1989 Honda Civic LX sedan, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Bought brand new, still own it. In 21 years, it blew a head gasket (~$2000) and THAT'S IT for repairs, aside from the usual scheduled maintenance. I wanted a car that wouldn't leave me stranded on the highway, and THIS IS IT. Very spacious interior. My 6'1" boyfriend (who drives sports cars) couldn't believe how well it performed and that he didn't hit his head on the roof (he used to borrow it all the time). I'm 5'1" and I had no problem adjusting the seats so I was comfortable driving it too. Now at 21, acceleration is poor, and it gradually decelerates on steep hills (it was great when new).
Cons: Both earlier and later models of the Civic were better-looking.
Overall review: Can't believe how much value I've gotten for $14k out-the-door. Finally thinking of replacing it, think it might have to be another Honda Civic.

Awsome SI by Hollywitch - Central MA on 10/22/2008. Trim: 1989 Honda Civic Si Hatchback, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Can't wait to get another! Got this one at 63,000 mi. and 6 yrs later at 278,000 mi. my SI is still going strong and gets 35-40 mpg. Just replaced the distributor cap and rotor and my mechanic (who works on stock cars) couldn't believe it still ran as the rotor was falling apart, but it still started every time. Handles really well in the snow for a small car.
Cons: Body is falling apart the bumpers falling off doors are rotting and hood hinges rotted. That's what you get when you drive the highway in the New England winters. The engine will outlive the body. No cup holders but those can be bought aftermarket.
Overall review: Get one!
