I am purchasing a 1990 Honda CRX. I have no experience with this type of vehicle. I have heard that Hondas run very well, and I was wondering if any of you have ever had any experience w/ one of these. Do you think it would be a worthwile investment?

I had ex-Honda CRX HF 1986 and CRX Si 1990. It runs very well. But I am warning you. You must have an alarm system and lock jack brake or steering wheel. My neighbor had a CRX twice stolen a two different CRX. They never find it. So be careful with that car. Body shop would taken your car away anytime! It is crazy people out there!

It's possible worth it but if you are willing give it up try to sell more price offer to some customize body shop or else. They will buy from you. Good luck.

Yes, make good cars... Any motor vehicle should have some sort of alarm or theft deterrent anyways...

Honda are known for reliable and hard working cars...

I had an '86 CRX Si. What a great car that was. Quick, great gas mileage, and a nice big sunroof. Mine was red.

Two words for you... timing belt.

Most Honda four-cylinder motors are interferance designs. So if/when that timing belt breaks you'll find yourself with a banged-up engine. Timing belts need to be replaced at a regular interval, usually every 60 or 75,000 miles. If the previous owner does not have a record of when this was done then I would look elsewhere, or at least talk the price down to include the cost of replacement.

As with all things Civic they are highly modable, but it isn't clear that you want to do that. But an Si is already pretty quick, 105hp and barely 2000lbs curb weight = fun. Unless you are planning to mod it or anything like that, a 15 year old car is one you buy and drive into the ground until you can afford something better. And if you are not able to drive it into the ground you sell it to some other kid looking for a fun car to drive into the ground.



One more thing, as a general rule cars are poor investments. Unless you find a mint condition Dusenberg SJ for $500, then I would suggest picking that up.

Yeah, if you want to piss off your neighbors when a stray cat sets it off at 3am.

Watch peoples reactions next time you hear a car alarm go off, nobody even looks around. Car alarms have proven the story of the boy who cries wolf, they sound so many false alarms nobody even hears them anymore.
