Wonder what's up with the AC - it seems to be a common busted item on this generation of Civic.

Hondarust included! (I've actually seen a couple of this generation of Civic with the rear rockers completely blown open with rust.)

I have a soft spot for this gen Civic. It's the same year & trim that I had - and that car was the most "grown-up/normal" car I've ever owned.

But honestly, I'm not shopping (though I still haven't cancelled my email alert). Just posting this for entertainment value. As I said before, cheap Mirages mean no more winter beater roulette for me.
Seems like on the bulletproof japanese cars the only thing that goes out is: starters, alternators, and AC pumps. Maybe denso slacked off that decade.

What I've seen: alternator brushes last about 150k miles but that's related to how much power they use recharging the battery trying to start them after grinding on the starter for like 5 minutes. Most of the A/C failures were low freon, just 1 failed mag clutch. A/c system is full of lube oil.

Everything else gets replaced because the car won't work.

1996 manual Civic DX with 213,000 miles for $1,200

I was trying to write notes when I received the notification and now I need to leave to see my one client. It looks like there is damage above each rear wheel. The driver's side has unpainted bondo. It looks like there is a dent on the passenger's. There are other scraps and scuffs, but honestly, this looks better than my Civic--and my Accord.

I am not a fan of aftermarket wheels, but these don't look bad, although they seem idiotic with the driving conditions out here.

What is going on under the hood?!

It is missing the resonator, it is wired for an amplifier, the exhaust manifold is cracked, and what is that big red hose by the firewall?

The original picture is slightly larger, but not enough for me to do anything about it.
