I have a '94 Civic Sedan EX and it constantly surprises me. For instance I drove 325 miles and got 47 miles per gallon! The EPA only estimates it at 35 miles per gallon. Other than that this car is a trooper. Easy and cheap to fix and repair. Great Car!!!!

I bought my 94 honda civic from a private seller as a second car that made better gas milage than my expedition. I am very happy with my purchase. I didin't expect anything perfect as I was looking for an older vehicle, but it is in good shape and runs smooth with no leaks. It has been well worth the money. The car makes the milage I was looking for and is fun to drive, however getting used to the steering after years of power steering. I would reccomened this car to anyone as Honda is a very reliable company.

Not bad at all for an old car with high mileage

I bought a 1994 Honda Civic hatchback with 174,000 miles through cars.com. I am very impressed with this car. It drives well and has been starting fine through the winter months. We had to replace the oil pan and gasket, and it still leaks oil a bit, but this thing drives and feels like it still has another 50,000 miles left.

Forever Civic

I bought my 94 Civic DX Sedan from my parents (who bought it off the lot in 1994) 7 years ago and its still running with over 222K miles on it. Its just starting to show sings of an old car when the gear box had to be replaced at 120k and the clutch bit the dust at 200k followed by the fuel filter and pump (all these were the original parts). I love my Civic and was practically razed in its compact camel brown interior with my parents driving their children around and now I'm doing the same for my family in the same car. The only down side to my Civic is that it was manufactured without AC and a radio (Cassette/Radio was put in 96 and updated to a CD/Radio in 04 but still no AC).

Worth it

I owned a 94 Civic LX for about 5 years. I bought it at 110k miles and drove it up to about 160k. Though small and thus kind of uncomfortable, I was overall very happy with this car. Fuel efficiency was amazing! It wasn't until about 150k miles that various systems started to fail. First was the exhaust, which was a fairly inexpensive fix. Then was the cooling, a somewhat more difficult but still easy fix. And then finally my transmission gave out and I was forced to move on. If I saw a 94 Civic on the market today with 100k miles or less on it, I would gladly seize on the opportunity.

Third owner of green 5 Speed DX Hatchback. Purchased vehicle in 1998 with 80,000 on the odometer. It now has 355,000 and counting, so I have added enough miles to reach the moon. This car has the original engine and transmission, although many other parts have been replaced over the years (radiator, clutch, shocks, muffler, etc). Interior is spartan, and my model lacks such features as A/C and power steering. Have driven in all conditions, all across the USA, and this car has been consistently economical and reliable. It now serves as a ski car and is retired from daily driving, but remains eminently reliable. It was stolen over the winter, and when found only needed a jump to get back on the road, despite being abandoned for months. This car is a keeper.
