2006 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe w/Navi, Summer Tires (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Test drove car on a whim last week and purchased one on Friday! What a hoot. Much more fun to drive than my 2000 Corvette w/ 6 speed. I let several friends (who own sports cars) drive the car this weekend and they were very impressed with the the total package. Their guess on price....25 to 27K. Handling limits are way beyond my capability. The car handles like it's on a rope with summer tires being very sticky. Car is comfortable while cruising, handles bumps really well and will easily exceed any speed limit without being noticed by the driver.
Engine and transmission are precision. No way to exceed rev. limitor to damage engine except by a missed downshift. Also, no way to shift into reverse when moving forward. These features are important to someone who is used to driving a Corvette with long throw shifts and reverse not by 6th gear.
