Subcompact front-drive Civics again came in three body styles: 2-door notchback coupe, 2-door hatchback, and 4-door sedan. Coupes and sedans were about 2.3 inches longer, whereas the hatchback grew by 4.3 inches--now riding the same wheelbase as the coupe and sedan. A 106-horsepower 4-cylinder engine powered the CX, DX, and LX, and could be accompanied by either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The HX coupes engine makes 115 horsepower, driving either a 5-speed or the innovative new CVT (continuously variable) automatic transmission. It operates somewhat like an electrical dimmer, in contrast to a 3-way light switch. EX Civics hold a 127-horsepower engine, with either manual or automatic shift. Dual airbags were standard on all models. Antilock brakes were standard on the EX sedan, but optional on the LX sedan and EX coupe. Minimize

It (almost) never fails me!
Pros: Extremely reliable, maneuverable - great in city traffic
Cons: Could be more spacious in back, maintenance costs increase post-100,000 miles
This a great, reliable inexpensive car. However, an older Civic with high miles will nickel-and-dime you with maintenance, but is still a great value. Read More at Epinions.com

A great car for the money

Cons: Stock stereo can't be replaced without losing keyless entry, odd location of some things
