1999 Honda Civic runs great on 330,000 miles

I bought this car several months ago as I got a good deal with the mileage. In does not have quite as much pickup as I'd prefer (especially with A/C on) in heavy stop-and-go traffic (perhaps due to its high miles) and is ok on gas. However, out ON THE OPEN FREEWAY, this car is golden! It sips gas - at first I thought the gas gage was broken! Tthis car is born for the open freeways and runs like a charm! Does not burn any oil, either. And it has over a quarter million miles on the odomenter! Hondas run forever! I guess they weren't kidding me!

I love this car

Purchased new on April 15, 1999, this vehicle is the most reliable car that I have ever owned. It has 138,000 miles on the odometer and is still strong. I have replaced maintainance items, like timing belts, spark plugs and brake pads. Oil change every 3,000 miles. I had to replaced the radiator at 130,000. I still get about 24-25 mpg in the city and 30-32 mpg on the interstate. I wish I could a brand new 1999 model. I would do it in a heartbeat. When this little car finally dies (which I don't anticipate anytime soon), I will buy another Civic.

I have 206K on a 99 Honda Civic and it drives like the day I got it, when the ODO read 000004. It still doesn't like to go into reverse but that hasn't gotten any worse in all these miles. It at first you don't succeed then try first gear and then reverse again and it works. This is a manual. All issues to date: Replaced starter Automatic door locks are inconsistent (it may be because of dust as I live on a dirt road) Headlamps have to be buffed because they are cloudy Other that that it has just been regular maintenance of which I include changing all belts, new bushings and new control arms on the suspension so that the alignment would be easy. If I got the words wrong I hope you can see what I mean. I am 5'2" and the car is a great fit. The gear shift is in a very comfortable position. Steering is tight. It's a great car for lunch time naps, especially on the lumbar section of the back. The AC still blows cold! This car has far exceed my expectations. I've decided that I will keep it. :)

Honda Civic 1999 was the first car I have ever had. Got it at 222k miles. Yeah I know that's a lot of miles. Must of been a piece of junk right? Wrong. Most reliable car I have ever driven. This cars gas mileage was made it even more attractive, to my wallet I mean, and it ran like a champ. 0-60 in little over 8 seconds with no modifications as long as you take good care of this vehicle it will last you 200k miles or more. Showing her a little love but there was rarely anything wrong with her. Best car I've owned so far.

Best used car I've ever bought

by from Norwalk, CT on December 29, 2010

Excellent handling and safety. Very reliable and expect it to go over 200K miles. Peppy yet great on gas mileage (about 35 city). Wonderful purchase for young drivers just getting started.

I bought my civic LX new and had 143000 miles on it. I had regular oil changes done, had the timing belt replaced, new brakes once and two tune ups done. I had planned to drive it to 400,000 miles. Unfortunately, I was involved in an accident and my Honda was totaled. I T-boned a car (not my fault) at 50+ mph. I have a wrist fracture and a very sore chest from the seat belt and airbags, but I'm OK. I averaged 40 mpg on the highway. Looking for another Honda replacement now.

I had my Civic LX 5-speed for five years before it was stolen and it was a wonderful car. I bought it with over 40,000 miles and at the end it had 125,000. It was gone before its time. The biggest repair I had to make was the catalytic converter. The only draw back is that a lot of people steal the cars for parts to trick them out.
