Found a 1995 Honda Civic EG locally for sale and wonered what you guys thought of it for fuel efficiency. Anybody want to chime in? The owner says it gets anywhere from 35 to 45 mpg. Car has almost 200k miles on it. Should I look and listen or stay away? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
Seller says he likes to take these cars, fix them up and flip them, which is what he's done with this one. At least he's being honest.
He says the only thing that's mechanically wrong is an idle that surges some. He said he has changed the iac valve and the eac valve. He believes it's either the tps sensor or a small vacuum leaks. Says this is common in these cars and that it does not affect its fuel efficiency.
Any thoughts? Stay away or take a good look at it anyway?
Well I went and looked at the car. Totally disappointing. Was nothing like I expected. The surging idle was constant and was a serious problem. No way I'd give even near what he was asking for it. He seemed like a nice guy but this car was a bundle of problems. On to the next ...
