I bought the car in January after putting 255K miles on a previous civic. The styling on this car is great, as is the stereo system, but what really makes this car stand out - and is likely to generate some extra income for the state police - is its insatiable desire to go fast. It nearly begs to be driven faster through a tight turn, and as you hit 6500 rpm it will nearly give you whiplash and you'll have to already be thinking about shifting into the next higher gear to make it before it redlines at 8000 rpm. It's a great car!
The six speed manual transmission and CD player which plays CDs in MP3 and WMA format.
I would like to see the tach and speedometer trade places and would like a quicker response in the electronic throttle when letting off the gas to change gears.
