Read previous reviews. I have experienced some of the problems, poor clutch feel out of first, radio door cover squeak, road noise with sunroof open but overall a good looking fun car with good economy and reliability. One feature no one has mentioned is easy access to the oil filter. I can change the oil without lifting the car. Try that on your civic/rsx! Could use a rear wiper and more LEDs on the high mount tailight.
Awesome standard wheels/tires, Glass from cowl to trunk lid, snappy shifter for a Toyota, lots of extras are standard!
Smoother clutch, rear wiper, more contoured front "sport seats", zenons, fully lit high mount
