Just about to start a civic build, need to ask Qs

I am going to buy a civic this weekend hopefully and then the build starts.

I have never owned a civic and I know nothing about them. Im an integra guy. What should I look for on a 1993-1995 civic? I am most likely going to buy AS-IS. My friend that is a mechanic will come with me when I buy the car, but I just want to know for myself. Anything I need to look out for, or are the civics and integra basically the same story?

Thanks all.

The civic and integra share a lot of components. The suspension components are pretty much identical to an eg (92-95) civic. Great thing about the 90's era hondas is they were like lego cars. Much of the parts are interchangeable.

On the 92-95 civic, like any honda in that time period, check the rear fenders for "honda rust". Other than that, these cars are pretty solid for reliability. Just depends on the individual vehicle as to how well it was maintained in it's past life. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for.

Good luck with your search.
