Civic makes awesome drift car

Might as well get a stock RWD car, like a 240sx, rx7, or even a miata before you make a civic RWD lol


Best Honda right here

The new civics are nice family vehicles that are still pretty quick, but these are the only hondas that i like

1990s Civics are boss. The new civics are just functional appliances.

I do enjoy my 2014 Honda Civic, but it definitely has some quirks to it that I'm not overly fond of. While it's warming up the brakes are iffy at best even at low speeds, and the nitrogen tires have been nothing but a pain. That all said, I do enjoy the way it drives and having the option to limit the engine in Econ mode is quite nice. It's definitely a different driving experience between the two modes. Still, I was surprised when I found out that the base model didn't come with automatic headlights; something I thought would be standard as my base model 2006 Hyundai Sonata had that. At the time, the Sonata was the same level as the Civic though it's now the Elantra. That's really the main reason why I got the EX L model.

It just doesn't die, extremely reliable and above all, is just well built. The downside is to get higher amounts of torque out of the engine, an astronomical amount of money must be put in. If you tell me you have a 350 hp, 300ft reliable daily driver that is a honda, I usually just laugh because I know those engines can take a lot, but all reliability is thrown out the window once you even touch it.

I still loved the car though. It was the ultimate sleeper and no one ever looked twice at a "crappy honda" ,but it was probably the most expensive out of all of them to do performance mods.


mustang, thunderbird, eagle talon... It's like naming perfume.

I don't dislike them. They aren't expensive, they're reasonably efficient, they are easy to maintain and repair. It's practical to have one. Plus, they don't draw unwanted attention.

Somedays I wish I had something to cover the smell. I didn't realize until later that the thunderbird smelt like weed (being masked by an air freshener) and the LTD had blood stains in the trunk....buying used cars was always an adventure

Honda was kinda sexy in Nisekoi, but Civic, I don't know.

Civics and Accords are very good first cars, in terms of safety and sensibility, older ones often sell for cheap. My dad basically wanted me to have a Japanese car because he's not a fan of American cars, so I've only searched for and had Japanese brand used cars thus far, driving them, I think they have better attributes than some American ones do, not to say i don't love some sports cars and luxury cars but they are not exactly fitted to my style of driving (as I have been described as a lead foot, I tried to drive my mom's BF's old mustang before he sold it and I scared everyone in the car lol) I have an Acura now but my first car (that I unfortunately totaled) was an accord.

They're also apparently good drifting cars, accords and civics. My sister has received multiple notes stuck to her '97 accord window begging to know if she's selling it and how much she's selling it for, ha ha.

I can't wait until the 10th gen Type R will finally be sold in North America as I will be looking to buy a new car in about 5 years or so...if my '06 RSX ever dies, already blew the first engine, not sure how but it started 'knocking' on death's door a few years back

My first car was a '93 Honda Civic.

I'd still be happily driving it if others would pay attention when they're driving.

They're cheap, extremely reliable, comfortable enough, and if you can get yourself a newer model they look damn nice, in my opinion.

Can't go wrong with a Civic.
