My Love Affair — JDM yo!! built for track, time attack, cornering and speed. not so much for comfort and picking up chicks and show off (buy BMW instead or whatever!)

Pros

It is very reliable.

Cons

It's a tiny car.

It Is Dependable. — It is only a four cylinder so the accelaration isn't very good, and i havent dared trying to figure the top speed i think the fastest ive gone is like 110. However it is a good car i mean after all it is a honda so it will run forever. The gas mileage is ok, it probably gets somewhere around 25 m/g. The handling isnt the greatest once you hit around 85mph it starts to shake. Overall all though it is a reliable car that will get you from point a to point b without a problem.
