Same car but with hubcaps, a scratched rocker and no tint.

ugh I hit +1 by accident

LOL, ass.

It is what it is, I'd rather have a small, somewhat fun car and no payments than having to keep looking for a car we can't seem to find and then have to finance it.

My brother and I recently picked up a manual Acura 1.6EL (essentially a Honda Civic) off our uncle and aunt. As much as I love my Volvo, it's kinda nice to have a zippy little stick shift car to whip around the backroads once in a while, instead of always having a big Swedish tank. :lol:

Not just a Honda Civic...a very luxurious Honda Civic lol. Leather and heated seats, sunroof, heated mirrors,etc.

This has been my family and winter car for the last 3 years (1999 Acura 1.6EL Sport Premium):

Extremely reliable...it was actually my vehicle of choice (over my T5M!) to get around town when I needed to run errands quickly. Handles great, it's automatic, and not lowered...that's why I preferred this over the T5M.

If you guys have ever checked out Car Survey...I think this is the only vehicle that I've seen on there that has all smiley faces from reviewers:

But, I will be selling it after owning it for 3 years because we've outgrown it as a family. Bought it for $3,400 three years ago, and will be selling it for $3,000 probably this week.

Clean EL! I have another uncle who has one exactly like yours. Premium and in the same colour. Our is a base so we don't have some of the nice luxuries lol, but we do have all the power options which is a plus. It's definitely reliable. My uncle and aunt bought theirs brand new in '97 and has never given them any trouble. It's so much better on gas than our Volvos too :lol:. Runs smoothly but......... I guess I've been spoiled by having a turbo because it's so slow when I need make a pass lol. You'll have no trouble selling yours, I don't think. It's crazy how well Hondas/Acuras hold their resale value!

This is ours:

Looking forward to autocrossing it next year. :D

I actually have a buyer lined up...I'm just waiting to finish up registering my replacement car ('03 V70 T5) and this one will be sold. Probably by the end of the week.

It's a great car, but it's def. under-powered. The cup holders are horrible and the door lock motors I've had to all replace.
