Got the winter beater

So today I mission it down to Brampton look up a car that I was checking out through Kijiji, I go check it out and I really like what I see a 1995 Honda Civic CX (Hatchback), pretty good condition no dings, he did a shitty primer on the rust and it has nice tread on the tires, I drive the car and I'm in love super smooth clutch is smoother than my current car! Only thing it needs for safety is to bolt on the exhaust (I'm thinking putting in an exhaust I have stored anyways) and the only other problem is power steering I've never had a non power steered car and it just feels weird and hard to turn the wheel, it has 252K KM's original engine (non-Vtec) ;( but I bought the baby for $400, and I'm quiet satisfied any tips on the beater and how are they for winter?

My 98cx winter beater doesn't have power steering, give it a week and you will get used to it. you only really notice it when pulling into and out of parking spots.

Looks like a good buy, enjoy!

Thanks for the help but I notice it alot when turning like you gotta be actually going for you to turn the wheel, I hope it'll be easier in the winter.

You will be fine, at first i was worried but belive me you will get used to it, and yes you have to be rolling a little to turn. But even in my civc with P/S I roll a little bit when turning. I never dry steer.

Also make sure you have a good set of snow tires as well. Can't stress how much they help in the winter.
