Wonderful car, if you can find one in decent shape

by Cheap car enthusiast from Willamette Valley, OR | September 24, 2014

This review is for the 1.5 L carb hatchback with 5-speed manual Pros: Excellent fuel economy (36 mpg on my last, mixed city/highway tank) Reliable, good design Simple to fix Enjoyable handling Tight turning circle Great cargo volume & flexibility Low insurance, parts cost Cons: Rust may be a problem, although mine is fine Carbureted engine can be hard to start when cold Issues with emissions system may be tough to fix Safety features are very out of date If you can find one of these great hatchbacks (even better in Si trim), they make great city cars. The large hatch opening and easy folding rear seats make easy work of hauling groceries, bicycles, firewood, etc. The steering is a bit heavy but, without power steering, you get a lot of feedback from the car. The transmission is geared well, but the shifting is a bit vague by even 90s standards. The 1.5L engine is adequate for city driving, but underpowered for passing on the highway. Even given these reservations, this is a wonderful classic Honda. After years in cars from the 2000s, the feel of simple, cheap motoring in this car is a blast.
