I'm looking into the civics because I'm jealous of my friend'* 95 DX. 40 MPG when he first got it, we put on a FWI w/ K&N, now hes making about 43 MPG. It'* ridiculous. He can't come near touching my car getting on the highway or from a stop, but its got some zip to it being a 5 speed.
I can't stand these gas prices anymore
. And... I can't keep my foot off the floorboard ever since I got the exhaust.
Problem is now that everyone is seeing the gas prices, there is no such thing as a $500 civic out here anymore. People are even editing their craigslist to say like *With gas being 3.50/gal, I refuse to accept any less than $$$$* kind of crap. I'd do it too... but still. Trying to decide whether I should sell the bonne, try to pay ins on two cars (inefficient) or park it for a while
Either way, the civic seems like a safe vehicle front and rear, the doors seem VERY thin but that might have to do with just having thin door panels. Great gas mileage, and I can almost personally guarantee it'll run forever.
