BlackDeuceCoupe you are right ON!

Although I have driven 2002+ civics and they do seem to handle quite nice, although in my opinion a 1992-1995 hatch with a B, H, or even K series engine is a benchmark for front wheel drive handling.

I had a 1993 Honda Civic sedan for 2 years I bought it with 460000km on the odometer and I retired it to the junkyard only because of rust and my not wanting to fix the rust as it was quite extensive. I drove this car HARRD, snowtires on down country roads with snow I would have gotten stuck in had I stopped, it is amazing what snow tires and keeping wheel spin (4000 rpm) will do for you. I must add that I did keep the car tuned very well, ngk iridiums, cap, rotor, fuel filter, 02 , clean pcv, good air filter.
