    I'm trying to figure out a daily driver. I'm 27 and trying to figure out the logistics. I'm going to have a nissan for a drift car and fun car. Now I need a commuter/daily vehicle. Looking at maybe a 2000 hatch or SI, something simple. The gf is buying a G37, so I don't need to worry about getting one of those. when my finances are better, I plan on buying an SUV or SUT.

    So...how old is too old for a civic?

    i see 80 year olds driving civics

    i dont think there is an age limit to thesekinds of things

    keep the car clean and looking respectable... ie: no flashy rims, no loud intake or exhaust, not slammed to the ground, etc... and i see no reason why it wouldnt be a resonable car to drive... especially with gas prices doing what they are

    my grandma and grandpa drove a 96 4-dr.. they were about 60 or so at the time.. so i guess you can never be to old.. maybe too old to modify them..

    *edit*

    Honda has really made the Civic and Accord look more upscale, like the image that the current Acura's project, in the past few years.

    Just look at the size of the Civic now, compared to one's of yesteryear. The Civic is a respectable car now and not just viewed as super mini import like the Echo or Fit.

    Drive what you like and what you can afford. There's not statute of limitation on ages for that.

    Lots of people of all ages drive civics, just like people drive corollas....

    Its when you see some older guy driving a civic hatch back with clear tailights and a fart can, now that catches my eye, clearly they bought it already modded.. =)

    You're too old to drive anything when you're 6 feet under. Otherwise rock what ya want :thumbsup: I'll be driving a Honda til I die. Unless I come across an affordable Supra, RX7, Skyline, or Foxbody Mustang (the only domestic I'd rock because of it's more import look) and even then I'd own a Honda and probably give it to my kid when I have one. My son turns 16 and asks for a car I'm like "Yea son guess what, I've had a 1993 Civic sedan turbo nitrous 450whp for ya in storage since I got my (insert car here)" LOL j/k.
