I bought this car on a whim, remembering my CRX Si from years ago. I hoped it could match the fun-factor that car had. Instead, this model feels a little nose heavy, and Honda has taken the "soul" out of the Si line. It has never left me straded, but there are little things here and there that i have had to visit the dealer for. It scoots ok when you ring it out, but is cumbersome in city driving due to its lack of torque. I would be happier if they got the weight down a little and increased low end torque so i am not revving to 4k rpms just to get up to speed. overall, a decently quick mode of transportation, but there are better choices out there.
Smoothness of the k-series motor. Good looks.
Windshield visors broke the 1st time i used them on a hot day. increase torque/improve gearing. gas mileage is low for a 4 banger. I average about 25mpg with mixed (highway/city) driving, and no I don't have a lead foot.
