I wasn't expecting this much fun from a hatch. I owned a 2001 Civic EX and I was looking for something a little more fun to drive. After reading so many rave reviews on the MS3, I decided to test drive one. To cut the story short I picked mine up a week later. I opted for the GT over the sport because of the extra features. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.
Performance of a higher costing car with sleeper looks. I love the Xenon headlights, exhaust sound, and Bose sound system. I also really like the interior design, room and comfort. This car is very practical daily driver.
The transmission isn't as great compared to other cars I have driven. Notchy and doesn't like to be rushed. Gas mileage. The Bose doesn't have any mid range adjustments. The ride can be harsh due to the sport suspension. There is some noticeable under steer and torque steer.
