I have owned this car for more than 6 years and I'm very pleased with it. It's really hard to move onto something newer. It has one of the best handling abilities compared to all FWD cars even being 15 yr old car. I'm not even talking about how much more positive difference it makes when you start adding upgrades and engine swaps are easy and inexpensive (200hp J-spec kl-ze) will waste much more expensive cars such as Integra type R, S2000's, etc.
handling is one of the best and acceleration for the stock 1.8L is incredible. Can not complain about interior design either.
Would have been nice if it was AWD platform but for the price of the car you can't complain.
