Ain't nothing wrong with the Civics/CRXs/hatches. They are very fun cars, and can get great gas mileage. I've been daily driving my CRX now for 3.5 years, and it's been a joy to drive. It's also a joy to work on. Everything is easy to get to and nothing as been too hard for me to do myself, except for wheel bearings. I almost bought a press, but dude did them for me for $40.
Keep rocking that civic... I can't wait to put a little turbo on my CRX. BTW, did I mention this thing has killer brakes and handles like a dream??
