Thirteen days ago I just bought the 2nd Honda I've ever
owned in my life, a 1993 Civic DX, 185 k miles, one previous
owner according to Since then I have been
getting it up to snuff, changing the timing belt, water
pump, front crank and cam oil seals, tensioner, and coolant;
re-building the door locks such that they went from iffy
functioning to fully functioning; checking the spark plug
wires (they are OEM, dated 1992!); and tinkering to get to
know its general condition. I am pretty sure it was traded
in partly because the timing belt was due. For me, this is
an experiment in buying used. Otherwise, it runs and drives
well (knock on wood).

Congrats on your second Honda. :-)

I can't claim to be a Honda expert, but I'll try to help with honest answers
when i think they may be helpful. I've read thru a lot of the posts and
appreciate the responses I've seen here - especially from Jim Beam & Elle.
I Just bought the 2nd Honda I've owned in my life - a 15 y/o Civic EX.
The first was an 82 prelude with i think about 60 hp. I sold it somewhere
around '96 with about 240 k on it and still running great.
