A dual-purpose car
By frederick on
2000 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe
I bought this car used with 110,000 miles on the clock and unmolested, actually it was a Canadian Model (SiR). First thing about this car is the handling. With double-wishbone front suspension and independent rear, it just felt like you can go into any corner at speed! However, what makes this unique (applies to all Hondas with VTEC) is the VTEC engine. low-rpm is great for gentle in-town driving (or when you are calm). When you wanna gun it down, just hold the rev up and virtually no other NA cars can keep up with you, not to mention the sound and the turbo-feel when it does that.
B16A2 is sweet. Independent suspension all 4 corners. Aftermarket support. Interior design - purpose built. 4- wheel disc brake (with ABS for Canadian SiR). Looks just like an EX which makes it a little sleeper.
High mileage B-series engine burns oil. Mine needs an overhaul (weak 3rd cylinder) and I ended up selling it. Auto theft is of great concern for this model year.
