1990 Hawaiian Civic for Sale

December 3, 2013

1990-honda-civic-frontIf you happen to live on the beautiful island of Oahu there’s a nice Honda Civic for sale near you. This particular car is tastefully modded and not overdone like many Hondas I see on the road today.

Though a base model Civic came with only 92 hp from the factory, the car only weighs a tad over 2000 lbs. That means it’s actually lighter than a Mazda Miata.

Way back in 1991 my cousin bought a brand new Honda Civic DX Hatchback with a manual transmission. Though it was all stock the car had plenty of pep and was quite nimble through the curves. I was pleasantly surprised how civilized the car behaved on the open highway.

The Perfect Commuter Car

August 9, 2012

I found this red 1993 Honda Civic VX for sale on Craigslist today. Here is a twenty year old car on sale for $2500 and with only 119K miles on the clock.

In case you didn’t know the VX model is one of the most fuel efficient vehicles to come out of Honda. Its fuel rating is 48/55 MPG which is in the hybrid category and without the complexities of a hybrid.

I once drove my cousin’s 1991 Honda Civic way back in the early 90s and remember how well the car rode. The ride was very smooth and quiet for such a small car.

With the gas mileage of a hybrid and with Honda’s reliability the VX makes for the perfect commuter car especially for those that require cheap transportation.
