Default What's your thoughts on buying an older Honda Civic Hatchback?

I'm thinking of getting a Honda Civic (Hatchback). I know they stopped making those awhile ago... Is like a 94 or 96 model still a good car to get? I'll probably be upgrading it alot over time. I love the older hatchback models.

I have purchased several Honda's in my day. I loved all of them. Never had any problems. The body seemed to fall apart before the engine went bad. My last Honda Civic had 290,000 miles on it before I decided to buy a mini-van. I believe my Honda Civic was a 1991. I had a 1989 Honda Accord too (that went for 230,000 miles). I say go for it. You'll love it!

A great car, especially if you love the model and know you'll be doing some upgrades. Good safety/reliability ratings historically. If you find one you feel right about, go for it.All the best...

It is an excellent car to buy if you are planning on upgrading it over a period of time. It looks great, it is light-weight, and they are very easy to work on.Excellent choice....now all you have to do is save up your money for a B-series engine swap and your suspension! You'll be running in the high 14's in no time!
