Our little SI sedan has proven to be a lot of car for the money. We kept our previous Honda ten years with no major repair issues. This Civic appears to be every bit as good. The little car could not be more fun to drive and the sales price was reasonable and not inflated.
The rev-happy 196 hp 2 liter motor with an eight thousand rmp red line is more fun than words can express. The smooth short throw 6 speed manual is a perfect match for the engine.
The heavily bolstered seats are a little uncomfortable for middle aged men with "love handles" such as mine.
