leasing this 02 SI for 3yrs. have had
nothing but Honda's in the past.
Wasn't too crazy about the looks, but
once I drove it. Sold! A great
combination of handling, power, and
interior asthetics in a fun to drive
car. Considered the Protege' 5 and
felt more confident in the refinement
and dependability of a Honda. Not
crazy about the looks, definitely needs
larger rims and tires, and maybe a body
kit. High cowl doesn't help.
Otherwise, a great car for the money!
Seats are wonderful. Best I've ever
sat in. Like the Leather wrap
wheel/gearshift. Black on white-faced
gauges. Shifter on the dash (why
haven't more cars adopted this?)and
tuning of suspension.
I miss the "kick" @ 5k rpm w/ prev
vtecs. Needs larger rims/tires and
body kit as option. Revise the body
for a more aggressive look. 200hp
would be nice.
