2013 Honda Civic Si w/Summer Tires 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
This car has manual transmission 6 forward, and 1 reverse. What is great is that it also has cruise control for those long drives. Apart from the power of the v-tech engine (205 hp approx.) with its DOHC compared to its predecessor Civic EX SOHC, every trip is an adventure. I will truly miss it once I return it. The only feature it does not have is AWD, which may be a plus considering the snow we have been having lately in the Winter (it did handle the snow better than others with the front wheel drive, the AWD would give it that extra traction to make headway since the car itself is low). Other than that, I love it!
We leased this Civic because it was a true ZERO down w/ low nimbly payments. I would not buy a vehicle that the manufacturer has confidence in for only 3 years or 36,000 miles. Hyundai, Kia, Buick, and others have a 5 year or 50,000 bumper to bumper warranty. Honda needs to step up. Problem with the car: cheap tires that wore out in 24,000 miles...not at all what a lease customer hopes for.
