This was my second car, and it was and may always be my best car!
With its Japanese design It was strong and sturdy. I only had two problems with it the whole 2 years I had it one, was the break pads got worn out (easy to replace) and the clutch lead stretched and that was replaced not so expensive either.
Its a nippy car and sits so low to the ground you wonder how you ever get in it. Once you take off the roof, (bit awkward on the manual version but you get used to it) you will turn heads. You can get this car with an automatic roof but I heard there can be some problems with this as if the electrics go the roof will be stuck and it could be stuck mid way.
Even though its a small car you dont feel squashed inside as its quite roomy and spacious. A friend of mine drove it hes 6ft 2 a foot taller than me and felt it was still roomy. You can put the chair right back as for extra leg room and it goes back further than alot of cars.
There is surprisingly good storage in the boot for a small car, and you can really do the car up with loads of extras if you have time and money. I only sold it as it was too small being a two seater.
Overall its a great car and comes highly recommended!
I have owned both a Silver 1992 Honda CRX VTEC and a Red 1990 CRX 16v.
Cosmetically the only difference was the front end. The Vtec models were treated to updated longer lights. It did make it more difficult to get after market body kits, as the manufacturers tended to aim for the earlier shape which had more cars built.
As standard the 16v has cloth interior, alloy wheels and a 130 bhp engine. Engine code D16a. This was good for 0-60 in around 9 seconds. Whereas the Vtec with the B16a engine is 160 BHP and good for 0-60 in 8 seconds. It came with updated 'better' alloy wheels and leather interior.
There is only one difference in the driving. The 16v revs up to about 6000 rpm with a nice power curve. The Vtec tops at 8200 rpm! There is a second boost of power at 4500 rpm!
If anyone had to choose over the 2, you would buy the vtec every time.
Although I loved both!
