If you’re a fan of older Honda models, you probably already know how hard it is to find a well-kept, clean Honda CRX that doesn’t suffer from any major issues or have huge miles. But this 1989 Honda CRX currently listed for sale on Autotrader is just that: an ultra-clean example of the well-known car with just 42,000 miles.
Although this particular CRX isn’t a sought-after "Si" model as the ad description says, it’s still a highly desirable example of the car. It’s finished in red with a gray interior and a manual transmission, and the low mileage is clearly reflected in this car’s condition, and both the interior and exterior seem to be in excellent condition.
For those of you who need a little CRX refresher, this version of the car was sold in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Base-level DX models, like this one, used a 92-horsepower 1.5-liter 4-cylinder, while "HF" (for "high fuel efficiency") models used a 72-hp version of the same engine. Although the sporty CRX Si offered 108 hp, the DX model was still pretty quick, given that the CRX only weighed around 2,000 pounds — meaning it was a zippy, lightweight car, which is one reason why it has developed a following in an age of increasingly heavy, feature-laden vehicles.
If you’re interested, this CRX is offered in Westminster, Maryland, northwest of Baltimore, for $10,000 — a big number for an old Honda, but seemingly reasonable given the excellent condition, and just how difficult it is to find a nice CRX on the market.
