VX hatchbacks were 92-95 not 96-00flyingtoaster said:I believe the hatches for that year are CX, VX, and DX. The DX has the most powerful engine, the VX has the best gas mileage, and the CX has the least interior crap, in case you want to create a hotrod.
100% THANK YOUthat one civic said:correction: EK designates a JDM civic chassis from '95-'99 model years (Japanese cars are usually designated for the year they are first sold in, not the "model year" they are intended for like in the US), and usually is intended for the hatchbacks (EK4 for '95-'97, EK9 for '98-'99). all US market civics from the 6th gen body style have a different chassis designation (usually EJ something).
interestingly enough, you might also hear people referring to 5th gen (92-'95 in US, '91-'94 in Japan) civics as EGs, but here in the US, only the DX/LX sedan is designated as an EG (EG8 to be exact). the 3 door is either an EH2 or EH3 (depending on the trim level), and the coupe is an EJ.
just more useless trivia information than you really need to know!
LOL! yeah i know, i sometimes think i spend too much time absorbing this useless information. i actually normally refer to 6th gens as EKs also, so it's not like i'm not guilty of this (same goes for 5th gens = EGs, 4th gens = EFs, etc. etc. etc.)mr2envy said:VX hatchbacks were 92-95 not 96-00
and to the person that responded to me, WE call 96-00's EK's thats what he was asking. whos technical here lol
