    I had a 1989 Civic. We bought it brand new and sold it around 2001 or so @ 84000 km roughly. The car had:

    1) very poor acceleration. I was a teenager back then (and of course stupid). We raced a few cars back the. The car running on petrol would easily lose to a Suzuki Mehran (Alto at the time).

    2) very bad road grip. It couldn't take a turn @ 30kmh that my neighbor's Nissan Sunnry could take @ 40 kmh easily.

    3) very bad comfort wise. The rear of the car jumped up-and-down-up-and-down-up-and-down several times and made your back ache. The suspension was very poorly designed.

    I basically did not like anything about the car except the body styling. Given the choice all over again, I would buy a 1989 Corolla instead.

    As mention @NoWorNeVeR its really econoamal car , its always given 10+ km's on petrol although i was not concern about petrol as its provided by my company that time. Once you use this car you feel the luxury currently i had GLi 2007 but trust me Civic 90 is moreeeeeeee comfortable then GLi.. only thing which i want to mention you its road clearance is bit lower you are very careful at breakeers otherwise your silencer will hit ... on other hand due to low clearance its grip are very nice..in my modle 90 its came with orignal honda alloys...other thing its rear seating capicity is very good you can accomodate 4 elder person (normal built) very easily ..


    In 16 years i had replaced excel joints , rubbers end , radiator, silencer twicly, where once i replaced fuel pump as well....

    @lahorite01

    Boss i had previously kept this car back in 2001-2003, in 1193 cc.

    A good endine with 55 cylinder should give u around 100-110 km (local) and 133-135 (long)

    This car i bought last year, engine was weak n gear was even 50% when i bought it n i had in my mind to get them replaced with 1500cc and so i did as soon as i bought the car.

    Now its going gr8 Mashallah. 125-140 km in local (summer) and 165+ easily on long route 55 cylinder, goes upto 145+ on CNG, AC even works without giving much load to the engine. Pick is also owesome ......

    I would highly suggest this car provided you upgrade the engine.

    And YES clearence is an issue (for that i am even trying to resolve the problem)
