I have owned my 2009 LX-S for 6 months now and I am pretty happy with it. It is excellent on gas I average about 33 MPG overall, I love the styling (both inside and out), it is smooth, reliable and has plenty of room for most anyone (I am 6'3" and I fit with ease) even the back has better space than most all the other cars I test drove. I am still kicking myself for not dishing out the extra cash for the Si (the car is fun but i can just imagine what those extra 57 horses could do).
Design, MPG, Space, Dependability, Even handles the snowy hills better than I would have guessed.
Remote trunk opener, more options available for the LX-S, better sound system, and a tighter handling ride.
