Notes: Haven't we all owned one of these things at some point? Despite being a popular first car for teenage drivers and, as a result, being beat up like no other, the late 90's Civic is a true endurance car. And it still gets better gas mileage than more modern cars.

Civic LX 1.6L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission

12.06/2010, on way to dentist, stepped on brake because pickup truck in front had stopped. CAR had nearly stopped, AND THEN SUDDENLY ACCELERATED INTO THE TRUCK IN FRONT...caused $3,587 in damage to my car. Shoved the bumper of the truck down. Has anyone else complained about this happening?
