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.

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.

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.

Wonderful Car

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.

I bought my 99 Si w/ 126K around 05/08 and now in 11/09, it has about 153K. Must've been well taken care of in the past since it's a NY car and has taken some salt baths in the winter and yet has no rust. I've only done minor maintanence and repairs ($180 for O2 sensor was the most expensive part). This isn't the most comfortable for long highway trips, but for the amount of power, 34-36mpg is very nice. The drawback is, it takes premium gas. I love the clutch and shifter; quick or slow when you want either. For such a small motor, this thing will get up and go in a hurry. I've only driven it hard a handful of times, but I know it doesn't take long to exceed 100mph...although, once you leave 3rd around 80-85, 4th kind of bogs down at high speeds. Handling is very sharp and easy, but it tends to lean excessivly around long curves. Still runs very nice at near 153K.
