2002 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Traded in my troublesome 2000 Acura TL on this hottie and loved it. Quick and fun, it brought back the spirit of my old original VW Rabbit. Seats are wonderful... drove it cross country (California to Maryland) in 2-1/2 days (with longest day 16 hours) and arrived rested, not tired. The car just clicked off the Interstate miles. Averaged 67 mph including fuel and food stops and got 26.34 mpg. Gripes: Syncros aren't up to quick 1-2 shifts. It's easy to grind the gears. No problem running on 87 octane gas, but make sure it's from a "quality" retailer... it pings mercilessly on cheap gas.

Favorite Features

Very quick, fun to drive. Great seats and ergonomics -- with the well-placed rally shifter and steering wheel, you can't help but drive quickly.

Suggested Improvements

Six-speed transmission and better 1-2 syncros.
