Hello everyone,
I am Tunisian, 32 years and new to the forum and to HONDA in general.
I came here asking for advice and i hope you can help.
So, tomorrow going to buy for my little brother a civic 4th gen 1990 EX 1.6 16V, it will be his first car.
I need you to tell me what should i be looking for (rust traces, tweaks, etc...)
Here in Tunisia we don't have a HONDA dealer ship or a trusted garage, so your help will be much appreciated.
I will post the picture soon.
Thanks a lot.

The first thing that you have to do is set your budget. Afterward, make sure that you will purchase a car from a reputable dealer. You can also ask them for the car history report to find out more about the car.

Sorry for the late reply, I was on holiday.
Rust around the wheel arches and doors is what you're looking at on the body. Mechanically they're solid as can be.
Stand up and fight!
