    Default Need suggestions for Honda Civic 1996-1998 EXi (Manual)

    Aslam-o-alakum everyone.

    I'm deciding to buy a first car as personal.

    I want to know about this car either its good or not.
    Please don't say that this car is too old to buy.
    Even don't compare with other cars.

    And its my only favorite car seriously!!!

    What about its fuel consumption in petrol? My driving style is very calm as I shift gears between 1800-2000 rpm.

    1800-2000 rpm should give you between 13-14 km/l in local driving, provided that the car is in good condition. Thats what I get from my '03 VTi prosmatic.

    Only when it is driven in that RPM range, with coasting and other hypermiling techniques. My father gets the same mileage as other people, i.e around 10.

    I have been driving a 96 Civic Exi for more than 10 years now. First of all, don't believe the meter. Any car from 1996-98 will have 250,000 or more kms on it. If someone tells you they have a rare low mileage beauty, they are probably lying. My car has done more than 275,000 on the original engine, never driven on CNG.

    Although I don't recommend buying such an old car, but on the plus side, this model is an absolute joy to drive. If you buy from a dealer you will most probably have to spend a lot of money on suspension and repairs. Buy from individual seller. As for fuel consumption my Exi can do 10-11km per liter with ac. without ac it can go to as much as 12-13km/lit. On the highway you can get 15km/lit and even 17km/lit if car is not completely loaded.

    Any question you have about repair and maintenance you can ask me.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    ^ Your relatives are right. Although I love this car, this model's time is is up. It's too hard to find a good 96-00 model today.

    Wont recommend this ride at all as a first car.It is a fantastic cars but you wont find one in good condition.Spares are expensive aswell.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Thanks Everyone.
    I changed my mind. I heard that Pak Suzuki will launch Celerio or Splash after six months. If it is better, I will purchase it.

    Well, I have just bought one Civic-96 EXI Automatic, previously I had Suzuki Cultus 2005, the best thing which I know about the Honda civic is that you definitely have to pay high for its spares but once in a blue moon. once you replace the old part with the new one, It will last for long time. while on other side Suzuki is worst for the spare's life, and best in the price list. so, decide before you go for any car, Civic 96 is too old but still better than other cars
