Honda Civic 1 of 11

There are thousands of used cars for sale at any given time in any given place, but choosing the right one can be difficult. If you find one of these cheap and reliable cars for sale, it's worth buying!

Honda has a solid reputation of making reliable cars, so you can't go wrong with the Honda Civic. These cars tend to hold onto their value very well, but they're still a good value.

The 1999-2000 models are affordable and more fun to drive than newer versions. The VTEC engine in the HX, EX, and Si trims gives the Civic a lot of pep for not a lot of cash. A 1999 Honda Civic Si pumps out 160 horsepower, gets 26 city/31 highway mpg, and has a blue book value of around $4,000-6,000.
