Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable, Cute, Unique,Economical, It's a Honda!

My CRX is a 1988(DX) not 1989, but I could not find 1988. They are basically the same.Having said that..... I absolutely love my CRX! Mine is red and an automatic with about 126k miles. I have had it for about 6 years. Only had to fix minor things ... read more

Pros: Great Gas Milage, Fun to drive, cheap.
Cons: Deathtrap, don't wreck please.
The Bottom Line: Buy one if you can get one as they're pretty hard to find. Owners are usually reluctant to let them go.

'89 Honda CRX DX. My favorite car in the whole wide world. Well, the ONLY car I own currently. Bought 2 years ago for $3700. Southern California Honda market keeps used car prices relatively high. Light Blue baby. 1.5L inline four cylinder ... read more

My very first car was a 1985 Honda CRX. It was a blast to drive but it was aging and with over 300,000kms on the car and motor I knew it was time for a new car - This was 5 years ago. I only had two choices in mind and that was a second generation CRX ... read more

I have liked the looks of the Honda CRX since they first came out. It wasn't until I started looking around on the Internet that I discovered that the CRX Si was a pretty respectable performer as well. The HF and DX models of this car are also nice, ... read more

Ever since I was a pizza delivery guy, and the manager bought a red 1987 Si I wanted one. After owning three Ford Escorts, I decided in 1996 to get one. I found a stock, white with blue interior, 5 speed, 1989 regular CRX, not HF or Si, with 59,000 miles ... read more

Pros: Great MPG, handling, little down-time, fun to drive
Cons: VERY VERY small; parts are high priced

In the summer of '95, it became apparent that we needed another car (my old clunker of a Chevy finally gasped it's last). The gentleman I worked for, being the kind-hearted (read-shrewd) man that he is, was arranging the purchase of another vehicle for ... read more

I've driven everything between the most basic Civic CRX with little dough-nut tires and the CRX si with aftermarket modifications and booming stereo systems. The things that impress me about this car include peppy acceleration that can only come from a ... read more

Pros: Easy on gas, quick, and corners like a dream. Cheap aftermarket parts.
Cons: Body rust. Because of its age - no air bags.
Mine is a 1988 Si, but I couldn't find one in your forum, so I'm writing in for the 1989. Car itself had 149k miles when I bought it (the engine and tranny had been replaced, and only had about 50k miles on them). Gets between 33 & 41 mpg depending on ... read more
