I've been having nothing but fun driving this car. Moved from a civic EX to the Si. No regrets whatsoever...so far. Of course, I'm taking a hit on MPG, but not nearly as bad as I thought. On the road, my scan gauge is averaging 35 mpg each day. That's mostly highway. But is this fun to drive. Makes my daily commute much more enjoyable. Bought it new for $18,129. Excellent price!! And it's great looking. Really happy with the deal.
Stick, radio, great acceleration yet economical, smooth as slick power-train, comfortable seats and ample room.
Test drove everything in this class area; bmw, audi, vw, chevy, mercedes, mazda, etc. This civic Si and its reasonable price did it for me.
