I've had several Hondas and loved them all. The only vehicle I've ever owned that I didn't was my 1996 Grand Cherokee limited. What a piece. The 4.0 6 is an awesome engine but the rest of the truck was horrible.







Can't find any pics of my first car, a 1991 Civic DX, but I just bought this a few weeks ago. I'm heading up to my parents house later today to put new axles and bushings on it:

LandWife and I bought a black automatic '98 Civic DX coupe with a slightly upgraded appearance package (aluminum wheels and a little rear deck spoiler) in '98 as her daily driver and our long-distance cage.

When we got rid of it in '07, it had 218,000 miles and got 37 or so MPG highway and 30-plus around town. Other than the normal consumables and -- somewhere around 180,000 miles -- a set of plug wires, all it needed was an alternator (and that was in the 200,000-mile range). When we traded it in, that engine was still clean and strong, and I would not have hesitated to jump in the car and drive it across the country if I needed to.

LandWife killed deer with it on two occasions , so it did get a little body work.

It was an incredible little car.

LandWife is into her little BMW convertible now, but she just said that if Honda made the S2000 with an automatic transmission, she'd buy one. (I know, I know! )

They build nice stuff. I've owned a few different Honda motorcycles. Just not what I'm into these days.

Hats off to Mr Honda!

Best bike I've ever worked on. 10 years old and no problems with anything.
