When car shopping, I found this vehicle to be the perfect combination of economy, performance, comfort, style, reliability and cost. I narrowed my search to Nissan Maxima and Honda Civic Si. The final battle was won for Honda when I found this car as Certified Pre-Owned with 100k warranty. A great car for a small family. Keeping the RPM between 3-5k makes for a civil driving experience in the city with respectable fuel mileage. Kick'r up to 7 or 8k when you want VTEC to come out and play.
Love the two tier dash and interior styling as a whole. The stereo is quite nice and the sub can actually sustain extremely low tones. The sound of the screaming V-Tech at 6k+ is the sound of harmonious precision. The seats are comfortable and adjustable. Mileage is nice. Fiji blue is gorgeous.
While it is a nice safety feature having the doors lock at ~5 mph, it would be nice to have all of them unlock - not just the driver door. That's all I got so far.
