The HX was a coupe produced up until 2005, equipped either with a manual or a CVT. It was rated 33/44 by 2005 standards. They are quite difficult to find. In addition to being rare, few people are willing to part with them.

Interesting fact: The HX has 2 more horsepower than other Civic models of the same year (except for the SI).

No, looks like a Daihatsu.

What physical limitation is holding you back from driving a manual?

Nothing. I would kill for a manual, but the deal I got on my car was too good to refuse.

Was directed to Wayneburg, wouldn't expect 40 mpg to come from an auto.

I'm guessing that the metro's are rated so poorly because of their 3 speed automatic transmissions. I think they also came in 4 speeds, but my friend's geo convt. has a 3 speed auto w/out O/D. which is really bad for the FE.

I averaged 35.5 on my auto Corolla, I hit 40 once and I think that was a miscalculation on my part.
