95-97 Neon VS. 95 Civic

Recommended Posts

Hmm......this is interesting...

My friends ( who would love to set the wagon on fire on roll ot down a hill :lol: )

seem to be car hunting for me, though I'm not too sure why....for a new beater.

So far, they have found a few...

95 civic 4dr, 105k, auto, almost 90% highway, about 1100 bucks...

96 Dodge Neon 4dr, 86k, 900 bucks.....

95 Plymouth Neon (we had one on these! :angry: ) 4dr, 92k, needs a starter,

700 bucks o/b/o..

Worth looking at any of these?

I'm not exactly in any rush to rid myself of the ol' wagon (though it is going to need

a bit of work soon)

Though I'm afraid a door might rust off...... :blink::lol:

If you're interested, the Civic sounds like the sure bet. It'll just keep running and running.

Plus, you'll be a part of Civic nation! And you can be just like these great Civic Nation citizens!

:P

But seriously, the Civic could be worth checking out. If you do get it, please just don't invest in a massive fart can.

Well, Neons are crap. I must admit, I do like them, though. A friend of mine has one with 120-130k or so thats problem free thus far. Very peppy and fuel efficient. And it's purple. Yay. :P

As far as the Civic... well yeah, they were essentially the best compact out there at the time.

AHHHHH! My eyes! You Hurt my eyes! :P:lol:

True, the civic could run for a while....

There is no way it will become a custom civic.....a bit of audio work, maybe...

Man, you're not joking.....

We had a 95 plymoth Neon...I wanted to roll THAT down a hill.... :angry:

Any a head gasket goes twice, that's not a good sign.....(any many other things)

But they are so much fun drive...ever take a turn at 40mph and not even have to stop? :lol:

Plus, they are quite good on gas, even when they burn a couple quarts of oil a week...I got close to 450 miles on a tank a few times...

I have a love/ hate relationship with then...

wow, 1100 for a civic with low miles like that is nothing for one with that few miles. jump on it! you'll be happy when you're beater runs another 140k miles with only a belt change and regular maintenence.

Civics can be made to look very interesting without making them garish like the ones above.

Civic for reliability during those years, but I would go for the Neon because I hold a preference for Chryslers, and come on, they're so darn cute and chuckable.

This is a no brainer.  The question is why is the Civic so cheap?  If it's in good condition, that's a steal.

In the land of the big three, you can actually catch a civic for close to the price

of a cavalier.... :)

As much as I myself would never consider buying a Honda over a domestic, I would choose the Civic or a Neon any day. While I have never had first hand experience but many people I know have and what they say are not good things. My buddy has a 94 Civic (probably the only 22 year old Male who has one that's stock and will stay like it) and it runs really strong.
