Sexy Knightrider — Pros: it's a Honda! I love coupes because they're compact, sporty and gas efficient. It's comfortable for short and long rides even with beastly kids in the back and plenty of leg room for them. It handles smoothly, has a large trunk space for extra crap, it also came with decent rims and even has navigation! All in all a fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fantastic Sporty Car — Great gas mileage. Very sporty. The engine revs like a motorcycle. Wonderful premium sound system. It has great options on the Si model. Has Honda quality. I would recommend this car to anyone other than someone with a large family.

Pros

I like the engine because its fast!

Cons

It's not too economical on gas, but gas mileage. Is good for its kind. People should understand at a performance car requires more gas than fuel efficient one.

Hot Red Super Fast — Great for driving around sporty. The moonroof gives me the essence of fun driving. If I drive by the mountains with this down, I feel like a champ. It has very low maintenance requirements, the warranty is good, and it is a reliable car.

I didn't switch to this car sooner.

Badass Car @ Great Value — I loved the color and design, the sunroof . Everything else was a perk! I got to meet the last owner because she worked at the dealership. Felt like for once I walked off a dealership and felt like I did actually get a great deal on a very good car. Making the payments on any car is much easier when you are enthusiastic about what you drive. I looked for several months to find a good deal and I am more than satisfied that I waited for this specific car,color & options! I spend so much of my time in driving everywhere so the purchase was a very big deal.

Best Daily Commuter Car Money Can Buy. — I love how light the car felt. When you get behind the wheel and turn into the corners while hitting the gas the car does respond. I also like how much room there was being that this is a relatively small car.

Pretty good looks; Engine has a good MPG ratio; and gives a nice bang.

Cons

Engines small; Auto-tranny. Costly to work with haha.

I'm Not Sure What To Put Here...? — Pretty fast for a 140hp 4cyl. VTEC gives it a nice bang at the start off. I'm making this car a very nice show car by next year. It was 27,000. Fun to drive. Drifts nice. Hits corners at 40mph without drifting. It Has an SI body kit; in which I am putting a type-RR spoiler on the back with a truck-replacement; as well as a new front end. I have 16 inch rims on their right now; I'm getting 17's soon, same make. However, I'm not a fan of low-profile tires. I have 3-million UFO LED's coming soon for interior, exterior, and wheel wells. Probably not going to do much to the engine for a few years; maybe just a new exhaust and air intakes...and new spark plugs for sure.

Wallet Friendly — A stylish looking car with extremely cheap maintenance and expenses. In the long run this car will save you lots of money. Unfortunately, like with everything in life you have to give some to get some. Lacking a little power...Eh.. a lot of power.

Civic Si Coupe — This car is absolutely phenominal. It drives beautifully and its so smooth. The pickup on this car is amazing, and the engine roars to life after 6K RPM (for those of you who don't know, that when the iV-TEC kicks in). My friend drives a 2004 Silverado SS, and I beat him on a 4th gear pull. this thing really flys. The interior is comfortable, and the bucket seats just suck you in and hold you as steady as a rock. It came in handy near where i live. especially going 85 through a very curvacious road. the mileage is really good for a sports car (21 city/29hwy). It took me 40 bucks to fill it on premium. out of a range of 1 to 10, i'd rate this car as a 20 on fun factor. Its just a flat out great car.
