    I'm the original owner. It's a 1997 Civic EX. The car has run like a champ from day one. Just stay ahead of the maintenance schedule; timing belt, water pump, drive shafts, brakes, oil changes, air and fuel filter changes. No problem. Major repairs done ; radiator @ 125k, clutch @ 225k, struts @ 215k, rear brakes lasted to 250K and drums were still good, changed boots on steering rack @ 260k, catalytic converter lasted to 274k!! At this point the steering is a touch clunky maybe the tie rod ends are finally due. Quality problems; AC is a little weak, but still on it's original charge, headliner is falling apart, water leaked into rt headlamp in the early years, rr camber a touch askew. Interior is becoming a bit noisy for my taste @ this point. Might be the tire selection.... Handles and runs superbly for a roller skate! You'll surprise people in faster cars through the twisty turns. Extremely dependable. Great for trafficy commutes.

    Excellent cat. Though i bought it in 2007 as a commute car, i have taken it for 1000 mile long vacations trips. Amazing performance both functionally and leisure features as well. The A/C and sound system inside are amazing for a 97 model car.

    I have a 1997 Civic EX Sedan and LOVE IT. I commute 100 miles a day for work and this car has been great. It has 214,000 miles and still runs great. To make my commute more comfortable I replaced the front seats with seats from an Acura Integra. Huge improvement. I also tinted the windows and installed a remote start for the cold winter mornings. If I need any body work done to it I buy my repair supplies from Auto Body Toolmart and fix anything that needs fixing.

    3rd Civic I've owned. Great car. Wish they still made the hatchback. Just wish the seat material was a little tougher.

    i inherited this car from my daughter when she bought a new 07 civic. she purchased this car new (her first car), and i believe she maintained it fairly well. it is pretty rough outside (red paint in florida sun) but still nice inside. i like driving this car better than our 04 accord. it handles really well. i had some a**h*** in a beemer tailgating me coming off I95, but he kind of disappeared when i took the exit at 65! i might keep this another ten years unless i find a nice crx.
