Would you recommend the 2001 Honda Civic Vi for a backpacker that only needs the car to drive to jobs and to travel around on normal roads and off-roads? Not extreme off-roads like dunes and stuff, but like gravel and that kind of roads? I'm trying to find a car that is not to big and not to expensive. And I'm alone.

I do not know how many KM the car has done and this is pretty important. But yes, a civic or a toyota corolla (+ mazda 3) would be the kind of small car I would be looking for - just try to get one under 150000 km and less than 12 years old - if you can afford it.Toyota camry or honda accord are also pretty bullet proof (same with a mazda) for medium cars, Holden commodore and Ford falcons too - but more expensive to run. It is usually worth while getting a mechanic to check over a car that you are buying. All of these cars should handle 95% gravel and bitumen roads unless you are going north in the wet season. Don't get an old european car here due to poor parts and reliability. cheers (also take oil and coolant and learn how to check it regularly)

Thank you for your advice. I was told that I should keep my budget on 3000$ but I put it on 5000$. Yesterday I found a really nice 2002 Toyota Echo Sedan but I see he got 244,010 kms, maybe to much. Thank you for your advice :)

I can only suggest that you Google it, or call a Honda dealer.
