Default What's the best late 1990's or so Honda Civic year for a used car?

My friend is about to buy one, any years bettter than others? Open to model and spending $2700 to $3000. How many miles is too much?

1996 to 2000 were the same car. Any year is fine. The only one I would stay away from would be a Civic HX with automatic. It has a different transmission. It came in coupe only, and should have an HX emblem on the back.

No miles are really too many, but you need to find out when the timing belt was last changed. I believe it was due every 90,000 miles on those cars.

Anything 2000 down is good. I like the 88-91 Crx or the 92-95 Civic hatchback. Try to find one with under 150k miles if possible.

I currently own a 95 Honda civic but I sort of drove the hell out of it. It is in almost excellent condition. I had to do some work to it in the past but I put over 60k miles on it so far. I will probably have to do some more work to it later on though.
