Honda makes one of the best stick shifts in the auto business with the Civic Si. Short throws and creamy smooth shifts. Performance is great for a 4 cylinder (2 liter) engine without a turbo. It's a rev happy car which performs best at 6,000+ rpm's, and the engine sound is sweet at higher revs. My car is black which is hard to keep clean but looks great when it has a bath. It's a head turner. Gave it a 9 on reliability but that's just based on Honda's past reputation cause I've only had it a week with 400 miles driven so far. I leased it for 3 years so it's covered by limited warranty. If it proves reliable I will purchase another 3 year lease.
Stick shift, great looks inside and out, great performance for the money spent.
Too many electronic gadgets that can be a maintenance nightmare when they fail to perform.
