    Default CIVIC 88 Info Require

    AOA All, I am planning to go for civic 88. Need your expert opinion regarding this car. What about the price range for a good car, what about maintenenace cost and parts availability. Most importantly resale value and worth.

    Please do comment on it.

    ^^^^sub acha hai report for 88 civic.
    parts are available,regarding resale not a big issue.
    new parts are bit expensive,i'm a proud owner+huge fan of this model.i love its drive,comfort,grip etc etc etc.
    a good car will cost you 400k-450k max.(by this i mean a realy good one)

    Bro I ve sold out this a car a year ago and believe me thats an outstanding car in terms of styling, roadgrip,comfort, performance. Mine was 91 with sunroof...

    Mechanical parts like engine, suspension,etc are widely available but the problem is its quite hard to find a good condition car on SALE. A lot of people who own good condition cars are still not willing to sale. And the second biggest problem is that if its door rubbers and interior stuff is damaged its very very hard to find and if you find one you have to pay MOUN MANGEE PRICE for that...!

    Remember a max good condition car will be not more than 360,000

    Try finding a clean car otherwise you would be in trouble.

    Best of Luck.....

    One more thing HONDA CITY 1996-2002 is based on this civic so most of the parts are interchangeble with city parts too.

    ^ Its an awesome car with everything just too perfect. I have sit in different civics 1994, 1999, 2001-2005 believe me suspension wise this one is Champ...! Rest of the story will be told by IMMAD as he is CIVIC 88 GURU...!

    You can easily find bumpers for 4000 PKR as i inquired last year from PLAZA karachi.
    The difficulty will be faced in parts like interior panels, door fabrics, roof cloth if damaged or torn off.

    The rear diggy lock will cost you around 2000 PKR as mine civic had issue of diggy so I asked the new one from market.

    1. We got the car back in 88 brand new 0 meter, it was my dad's company car
    2. I learned driving on it and abused the living CRAP out of it
    3. We had the car for over 12-13 years and it was over 200k on the Odo when we sold it
    4. Out of all the car's we have had this is the one i regret selling the most.
    5. In comparison to other cars this particular one is low and gives you very good grip

    As far as the parts are concerned i think you might be able to find interchangeable parts with 89 to even 91 civic/concerto (all of these models have similar shape but different lights, correct me if i am wrong). As far as the price is concerned it should be under 200k.

    Friend had one it was a 88 a Lady in white
    yar road grip is amazing even with worn rubber u can feel it will not get out of control and Peshawar is the place who started this Peshawari 88 thing all Stock in body with 17' rims and a decent Drop just looks amazing still many on road !
    and for engine it comes with D12b 1.2L carby and i agree its a bit lousy engine but we did changed plugs to NGK laser iridiums and wires to 10.2mm hot wires else that car was stock and it used to hit 170km/h CNG
    one thing except for the interiour parts Hissa problem is too much if driven hard keep that in mind else 95 and 88 both are S3Xiest civics till day
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !
