Great little sporty car
By Monopoly on
2008 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Great little all around car. So far I've driven 8000 km. What I love most is the engine and super smooth clutch and transmission. The I-vtec is peppy paired with limited slip diff and summer tires. It loves high rpm reminds me of a sport bike. Car handles very well with little body roll. Makes an excellent commuter car if your looking for something more fun to drive than your typical Civic dx/lx/ex etc. It needs 91oct and I've been averaging 28-29 mpg mostly highway driving somewhat aggressive. The car looks great cosmetically in coupe form compared to other cars in its class. But lacks acceleration to keep up with its competition.
-Smooth Clutch/Trans -Si racing seats and black/red trim interior -Limited Slip Differential -7 speaker sound system -and of course that sweet engine note from the K20Z3 engine! Exhaust sounds decent as well for stock.
- Acceleration could be improved. its Heavier than previous Si models. Could use more torque and horsepower. -Paint quality(chips and scratches very easily. Mines Rally Red) -Clutch/trans at times is touchy. likes to over-rev during aggressive shifts.
