2008 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe w/Nav (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
As a recent college grad, this was my first new car purchase. I spent months (literally) trying to find a something fun/practical/economical/sporty/stylish /etc. all wrapped into one. Before, I drove a '95 Mazda Millenia which was great. My first Honda experience has been amazing so far. I was warned the Si was a true sports car. This is not a lie. Gears 2 through 5 really have some power, especially in the higher RPM's (redlines at 8000). With a little time, the clutch is fairly user friendly. Navigation system is easy to use and the sound system is better than advertised (built in sub really kicks hard). I bought this car to have some fun and so far Honda has delivered.
DVD-based navigation (with touch screen audio controls), 6-speed, two tiered dash, 17" performance wheels, aux input, iVTEC, power moonroof, trunk is surprisingly big for this size car
Really nit picking here... the dark interior collects fuzz a little bit, short shift is great but the clutch seems a little long, power driver seat would be nice, I hope Honda decides to allow the manuals to be compatible with remote start soon since Honda has a great remote start system
