SI is a civic all grown up with all the bells and whistles. Had a 95 with 145000, ran perfect when I sold it. Just rusted. This car has good pick up even in fifth gear. Gas mileage is decent, use the cruise control. Better features inside, cup holders etc. than older models.
Easy to drive. Great handling, shifter is in a great position.
Occasional sixth gear needed, better fan for air. Live in AZ.
