This is truly a great sleeper car. It has all the power you need when you need
it, but at the same time, it gets great gas mileage. I avg 31 mpg, that is right,
average!! I have a mix of driving that is about 60% street and 40% freeway. I
have the black one so it looks like just about every other Civic coupe. That is
fine with me since I love the way the car looks, especially when it is clean.
Once I changed the tires (they were crappy and expensive) the car even
handled the snow pretty well. I truly believe now that the 0-60 time is 7.2 sec.
The engine didn't break in until about 15,000 miles so I was skeptical at first.
But once it did, look out.
160 Hp DHOC V-TEC engine, and I really like the sunroof. I think that controls
are great, and the placement of them is great. Excellent climate control
placement, all controls are egonomically perfect.
It could use a 6th gear, rpms are high on the freeway at 70+ even though you
get use to it. Also, I would like to see them put some better stock tires on it.
the Michelins XGT V4's were garbage in the rain or snow.
