HONDA CIVIC 1.4i 5dr (Review date: 1st November '13)
I had my Honda for a very long time over 15 years. It never let me down once in that time. I had to change the battery once and the usual wear and tear, oil, tyres, light bulbs etc but nothing drastic. Service and MOT was passed every-time with very little work.
My kids loved the car and when it came to sell it, they were a little upset as it was part of the family.
Petrol costs were very good and I could fill a tank for Â£60 especially now with the rising petrol costs.
The only reason I sold the car was I had, had it for a long time and it was a time for a change.
Very good runner and still was.
Never let you down
HONDA CIVIC 1.6i VTEC SE 5dr (Review date: 31st August '13)
I have been using this car for about three years. Apart from servicing the car for oil and oil filter,spark plugs I have only replaced exhaust, tyres and brake disc pads for 55000 miles. However the road tax is high . When i compare my car with my friends car I feel happy to own HONDA it just works fine.
I loved my Honda Civic
HONDA CIVIC 1.6i LS 5dr Auto (Review date: 23rd November '12)
Pro's - drives well even having 100,000 miles - smooth, slick and still accelerates and corners as it did when new.
Good all round visability and with an electric sunroof which I will miss.
In 5 years have only had to replace exhaust, pads, tyres and drivers side electric window coil.
Only tiny amount of rust now appearing over wheel arch - good solid paintwork too.
Honda's are built to last - it's just time to get a new one.
Con's - fuel consumption is poor due to being an automatic.
Peak Performer and Pricey

HONDA CIVIC 1.4i 3dr (Review date: 13th October '12)
WHAT A CAR!!!
i had the 1.4 petrol hatch 90bhp model, got about 40-45mpg avarage, about £50 to fill the tank, cheap insurance and tax was £130 a year
VERY REALIABLE CAR! never broke down on me once, only work it needed in the 4 years i owned was the obviuos wear and tear, pads,discs, tyres, oli etc.. sailed through every MOT no signs of rust at all, although some have been known to rust at the rear arch, mine was fine.
performance wise it really liked to go fast they rev upto 8 thousand and anything over 5 thousand revs and it was like warp drive, was amazed at how quick this thing went when needed, pulled very well through all gears.
handling was very good sat very low to the ground standard and conered like it was on rails, i changed the steel rimms for alloys which also gave it more stability. you really feel the corners and the bumps alot more than modern cars but i quite liked that.
easy to use dash not over the top with buttons was simple and sweet everything you needed, not over done. perfect! back seats fold down flat, boot space was shockingly big, fitted a push chair food shopping and other bits in with parcel shelf down! very roomy!
parts are cheap and plenty of them about, absolutly loved my civic was gutted when i sold it but had a company car at the time so couldnt keep it, would recommend this car to anyone! would have one again without a shadow of doubt!
buy one and i promise you will not be let down...
Honda Civic 1.6 Automatic N reg
HONDA CIVIC 1.6i LS 5dr Auto (Review date: 2nd October '12)
Bought this as a stop gap while my other Honda was off the road. I was going to scrap when my car was mended but I'm going to carry on driving it till it's sold, it's more comfortable than my CRX, more practical, cheaper on fuel. For a car of it's age it has more of the convenient gadgets than you'd expect. If I could run both cars I'd keep it. It's big enough to be useful but not too big to park and get round small roads where I live. Parts are readily available and easy to source, my husband says it's easy to work on (unlike his newer car) Did you know that Hondas were voted 2nd most reliable car by a leading car reviewer?If you've ever owned one you'll know why.
HONDA CIVIC 1.8i VTi 5dr (Review date: 21st February '12)
I have owned my MB6 VTi for 3 months now and can hoestly say its the most trouble free car I have ever owned. Its a very reliable car which needs basic maintanance and just by driving the car for a few hours you will realise how reliable and strong it actualy feels engine and gearbx feel very strong, tight, and smooth. powersteering is slightly heavy aroud town but sthing that you do get used to quickly. The handling is also fairly tight and sharp but in the wet you can feel the car struggling to put down all of its169 horses. The breaks are strong and stop the car well. I use the civic as my daily drive and for me its perfect, I have the practicality of five doors and boot space but its not too big to park up in town. The car can also be fairly economical when kept below the 6k rev range but once taken past 6k its an absolute wolf in sheeps clothing. The infamous VTEC comes into full effect at 5900 revs and keeps on singing till 8600 revs. The car really does push hard in the VTEC and sound great. Overall the VTi is a very strong, reliable, economical and pracical car and can be very quick when needed.
Honda Civic 1999 1.5 Petrol Zetec
HONDA CIVIC 1.5i VTEC LS 5dr (Review date: 16th January '12)
Great car, they are very well built and make great run arounds. The 1.5 petrol is absolutely great when it comes to economy but also has enough power to get you out of sticky situations. They drive very well, confy on long journeys and plenty of space in the back seats and the boot. Due to the build quality they are more than safe at carrying around children should the worse happen. They are very affordable to pick up and don't dissapoint.
HONDA CIVIC 1.4i 5dr (Review date: 4th November '11)
I bought this HONDA CIVIC carwhich was destined for scrap because of high millage above 170k took it for mot passed with minor advisory now am driving the car on motorway daily to college fuel consumption is excellent and engine is very responsive at high revs and still economical , ample boot space for normal daily usage as a hatchback but downfall lies to prone to rust on back wheel hatches and poor window mechanisn which can be repaired with easily with Rover similar shape.
very reliable and economy for money as no major breakdowns all the cost has been road tax , insuarance , oil service and rear brakes replacement am looking to see it perform 200k easily and would recomend people on low budgets.
