I have had my 98 lude for a little over two years and is the funest stock sport
compact I have ever owned. I put 12,000 miles on the car annually and not a
single mechanical problem yet to date!!!! This car handles well with the
stock suspension, fast as hell off the line -- especially if you take it to the
red line. Styling is sleek and the ride is firm and comfortable Like the title
says, best sport compact on the market not only because it looks great, is
fast and fun to drive, but because it displays the reliability you would expect
from a Honda!!
*H22A 200 HP (at the flywheel) VTEC ENGINE.
*Sleek sexy styling.
The stock Bridegstone Potenzas get chewed up rather quick....so better
stock tires. I have had success by replacing them with Yokohamas.
