Im looking into getting a 92-95 Hatchback, or coupe. Leaning more towards hatchback. But what are the pros and cons of these cars? What should i look for in these cars? I dont want to be ripped off and stuck with a POS. I want to make a VERY CLEAN civic. No ricey stuff.. Any info is much appreciated. Thank you
Everybody shuns these cars? Huh. Do you roll with a crowd where everybody's daddy buys them a Mercedes for their 16th birthday? It's one of the best selling economy cars worldwide. I don't get how "everybody" shuns them unless you're some sort of rich dbag. Seriously.
Pros: Parts are cheap and available everywhere, they're easy to work on, most s*** makes sense, the whole car can come apart with two screwdrivers, 8,10,11,12 14 and 17 mm sockets, and lots of parts share between 90-00 civics. And of course, hatchbacks are awesome <-- personal opinion lol
Cons: They aren't that fast (without work), they're kinda loud since there's minimal sound deadening, they're kinda small.
