I am looking for a well maintained and in good-great shape CRX HF or Civic VX. I am doing quite a bit of commuting to work and my prelude at 26 mpg is not cutting it. I am willing to travel for the right deal but prefer a California car. Let me know what you have for sale as I have cash and am motivated.
Are you in a position where you can do some work on something? I have a guy I know who has a CX that has a blown head gasket, is my guess. He really needs to get rid of it pretty quick, because it's sitting on the street, his tags are expired and it needs a smog to get the tags.
Hey I have a 92 teal civic vx. It has been a huge project for me, but Im getting married and my fiance wants a new car :/
it has 158000 miles but at 150000 I ordered a japan D15b (stock replacement same as d15z1) and dropped that in along with a new tranny (well, new used anyway!). I also did the brakes front and rear, timing belt, tensioner, water pump, cleaned the intake manifold and egr valve, new tie rods, new axle, new radiator fan, and new trunk window struts. all CA legal. average 43 mpg, best is 51mpg.
The bad... The paint on it was done really lousy and there are some drip marks on the sides. It needs a new O2 sensor, it got in a front end accident, so the hood is dented, Im buying a new hood soon. I took the ac out, but still have the parts (after the engine swap I was lazy and ac was not top of list!). No radio.
body is clean aside from front damage, which I plan on having repaired. clean title. The car is in San Diego, CA!
8000 miles on replacement engine without any problems other than o2 sensor. they told me that the replacement had 30-50000 miles. plates registered til August 2010.
