2009 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan w/High Performance Tires (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
This car is real quick from 60-90. Has some road noise, but the 350 watt sound system can correct for it. This car is a real show stopper for $22K, with at 7 sec 0-60. A must test drive if you are looking at the IS 250-350 (smaller interior) or the Acura TL. The resale value makes the Si a real choice over the Subaru WRT which costs almost twice the price.
Speed, handling, (with summer tires and HFP 18 rims), value, sound, 33mpg city, if you don't get into it.
