Friends thought I was crazy selling my '07 Civic Si, and perhaps I was. Yet one month later I purchased the Yaris and don't miss the Si at all! Who needs 0-60 in 5.3 seconds? The Yaris is an economical, quality, and well thought out car by the Japanese automaker. I like the aerodynamics of the car, not to mention all the nooks and crannies. Fuel economy is on a par with the Prius, and the Prius costs about 10k more. Frankly, I'll take the Yaris at 15k and 10k of free gas. The hatchback is also fun to drive. I am 6'3" and have plenty of head and adequate legroom. The convenience pkg upgrade is worth the price.
