I got this car brand new. Nothing bad except for my older brother tearing up the clutch after only 40,000 miles, but that's his fault not the car. This is car has so much potential no one knows about or understands. A lot of people think the civic is another foreign car thats saves gas. Did you know most of the parts on the civic are made in the US than there are on a cavalier? I don't think an American counterpart can compare to this vehicle. It may not be twin turbo-ed, or have a supercharger, but the VTEC can get the car to keep up with many others out there.
VTEC (even though its only an SOHC in my EX), availability for upgrades in performance and looks, via aftermarket, reliability.
Better sounds system from stock, standard alloys or wheel option (no hub caps), and should of have the HFP package available for the Sedan!
