My 14th Volvo (a 765T) is resting and I need transport. I think the car I'm
looking for is a Civic HX, preferably auto. I'm seeing some in apparently
reasonable shape with 100K or thereabouts for around $4500. Looks don't
matter much, but reliability is a must. Good gas mileage would be a plus.
I know absolutely nothing about Hondas, so my questions to all you experts:
Is the HX a good choice or are people going to roll around laughing and say,
You bought a WHAT!!!?
Is the price/age point reasonable? Should I spend more money? Could I spend
Volvos before '88 had bad electrical issues. Is there a similar break point
with the HX where long-standing problems were finally made to go away?
Is there anything peculiar to this model that I should watch for?
I've enjoyed browsing this group and look forward to your responses.
Thank you --
