REASON FOR SELLING
In addition to having another vehicle I have a very short 2.1 mile commute to
work, so I'm not really utilizing it for what this car is intended (saving serious gas
and money).


THE GOOD
- Great mileage (EPA rated at 49 city & 51 highway)
- Stock D15B6 engine and tall geared 5 speed transmission
- Comes with recent smog certificate
Some sellers try to sell as-is and leave it up to you to smog it...I wonder why?
Because they know it won't pass and it's a headache and expensive list of repairs
to get it to pass emissions properly.
Not an issue here!
- Drives great (No shimming or shaking of any sort)
- Idles perfect (No fluctuating of any kind)
- Clean overall body (minor scratches/dings/dents normal on a 16+ year old car)
- Glove compartment is in perfect shape.
- Original Paint with no rust whatsoever (surface or anything else)
- Grey Interior (favored by most over the blue interior)
- I have driven this car long distances with no worries or problems what so ever.
- I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere at anytime.
- I'm still getting 50 mpg when driving long distances on highway
- I easily get over 40 mpg in city driving.
- It's fully maintained and drives great.


MAINTENANCE WITHIN 800 MILES AND/OR 4 - 5 MONTHS
All this work was performed at Honda Craft of Sunnyvale (it's a Honda only shop).
I have the receipt for the things I've done to it and also have some of the receipts
from the previous owner too.
- Original transmission failed internally so I replaced w/used stock HF transmission
It was very difficult to locate and obtain another HF transmission but I was
persistent and got one from a 1988 CRX HF)
($250 plus installation labor)
- Both new axles
I figured it would be cheap insurance even though the previous owner had
installed new ones not too long ago)
($200 plus installation labor)
- New Honda OEM rear main seal replaced ($26 plus installation labor)
- New Exedy clutch (Had to due to different spline count on 88 transmission)
($100 plus installation labor)
- New pressure plate (Had to due to different spline count on 88 transmission)
(see clutch)
- New bearings (Cheap insurance) (see clutch)
- New flywheel (88 Transmission case is too small to reuse the 1991 flywheel)
($90 plus installation labor)
- Just passed CA SMOG inspection (CA is the most stringent for this test and it
passed with flying colors). ($60)
- Installed a brand new catalytic converter ($100 plus installation)
- Installed a stock CRX Si exhaust (Modern Muffler receipt included) ($200)


OLDER MAINTENANCE WITHIN LAST 6K - 8K MILES AND/OR 12 - 16 MONTHS
- New timing belt (w/ parts receipt and old parts as proof)
- New water pump (w/ parts receipt and old parts as proof)
- New axles (w/receipts but I had to replace due to different spline count on 88
transmission)
- New clutch (w/receipts but I had to replace due to different spline count on 88
transmission)
- New Bosch Platinum spark plugs (receipt)
- New spark plug wires with lifetime warranty (receipt)
- New distributor cap (receipt)
- New distributor cap rotor (receipt)
- New FRAM air filter (receipt)
- New FRAM fuel filter (receipt)
- Oil changed regularly


EXTRAS AND/OR UPGRADES
- Complete set of 13" VX wheels.
Straight and true. Comes with caps and with very good tires with about 80%
treadwear still remaining.
You all know how hard it is to come by a clean set of these very light weight OEM
alloy wheels.
A set just went for $443 plus shipping on ebay.
- DX seats in excellent condition replaced stock worn out HF seats.
I properly mounted the seats using all 4 bolts holding them securely.
Not half assed with welding or using less then the total bolts. ($200)
- Alarm with key fob
- Alarm activated power locks
- Coilovers on all four corners
- JVC Stereo with very nicely installed Kenwood tweeters on doors and in rear
cargo area.


THE BAD
Brutally honest here because I hate liars trying to pass off junk or problems on
others by not disclosing known problems or issues.
- Front bumper has grill insert and one of the fake air ducts cut out by previous
owner
- Front/Rear bumpers (on one of the sides) have a good 2" - 3" scratch on them.
- Front bumper clear lens cracked (drivers side)
- Drivers side B pillar is missing (I have a replacement just not installed)
- Climate control cracked…ok broken but this is typical of CRX's. I might have
another as a spare, if I find it it’s yours too.
- The clutch could use an slight adjustment since I didn't do or (know how to do
it), it makes a slight clicking sound that goes away when (A) it warms up or (B)
you press the clutch in (and it's only audible when in first gear at very slow speeds
like under 5 mph). There's nothing wrong with the transmission or motor (as
explained to me by both Honda shop mechanics and shop owner), they said since
it's a used transmission it will get better as I drive it more and all assured me all is
fine. It's nothing serious as my gas log shows me still averaging 40+ mpg city and
50 mpg on highway trips.
- The windshield has a crack in it which it has had since I bought it but it hasn't
bothered me enough to replace it, plus it's not in the drivers view.
- Slight tears in the door panels (see pictures)
- Slight tear in drivers seat bolster fabric but the foam in intact. (see pictures)

PRICE
$3200
With 13" Alloy VX wheels/tires and the DX seats you see installed in pictures

OR

$2800
With stock 13" HF steelies and another set of DX seats that are almost as
good of shape as the ones already installed.

I paid more for it when I got it and have put a lot more into it getting it to the
shape/condition you see it now but it’s time I give it up to someone else that will
appreciate it and get good use out of it.

LOCATION
Sunnyvale California 94086 (Mathilda/101 for you locals)
