I’m eyeing a 2003 Honda Civic GX. I want a fuel-efficient car that will last for me 2-4 years. It runs on compressed natural gas, or “CNG”. It’s selling for 4 grand, and has 118,000 miles on it. I live in an area with a lot of gas stations that provide CNG.
I haven’t been able to see a carfax report or learn much of it’s history, but I will see what I can find when the dealer opens on Monday.
Does anyone have any experience with Honda Civic GXs, or any CNG vehicle? I’m curious how much it would cost to repair. Do you think this is a good deal? What are your thoughts?
I’ve read that CNG is inexpensive, but has less range, and (in this case) takes up more than half the trunk space with extra fuel-tanks. CNG also allegedly produces much less emissions, is easier on the engine, and is safer than regular gas.
