I Love My Civic — I have had this car for about 8 months now and it has been one of the best cars I have ever driven, it is amazing on gas mileage. I went from an SUV to a civic and have not had any regrets yet!

Pros: Great on gas

Cons: Don't have any

Gas Saving-performance Car — The Honda Civic Si, A 2.0 liter 4 cylinder I-VTEC engine with a 6-speed manual transmission and close ratio gear box. Very fun, easy, and practical for the everyday use on the road. Only 197hp sadly, but this car saves gas unlike most practical sport performance cars on your mind. Very simple interior and its the ideal first car for the average person who wants a sports car and drive manual.

Pros: Easy to drive, soft clutch, saves alot of gas. everday practicality from point A to point B with fun in it, the sound it produces when you rev it, factory redline is 8200 rpm, easy to maintain, cheap prce.

Cons: looks like a toy car on the road in certain colors, cant expect alot for a $20,000 car, Manual transmission only for the SI, could have better brakes( but they are still good), really cheap and basic interior if you are looking for luxury(none of that will be here), ride is pretty hard due to sport suspension but well worth it.

Quick And Comfy — I'll start with 197 HP, 6 speed, limited-slip diff. Oh yeah, and when you don't want to go fast, you have a comfy, efficient civic. Bottom line: It looks cool, it sounds cool, and the backseat is a very nice place to be.

Versatility Is It's Name —

When it's fun: The Civic Si is a blast on the interstate or on a winding road. The 197hp engine and sport tuned suspension handle with confidence when driving 100mph+ or carving out the corners on a back road. Four doors mean you can bring your friends along for the ride. It is easy to scare the pants off of everyone while remaining confidently in control. The easiest way to accomplish this is to take the interstate onramp as quickly as possible or drive double the speed limit on any road. It is great fun to test the limits on the Civic Si. This thing is a beast. When it isn't fun: The highly tuned engine and sport suspension are terrible in the Antioch area where I live. Here, the roads are very rough. Pair that with a stiff suspension and you have one unenjoyhable ride. Also, a certain demographic always drives 30mph on any road. You know who i'm talking about, their population has exploded in the past few years and they all drive trucks. This is maddening to be stuck behind with while jetting from place to place. Also, the traffic is very congested so you will be driving slowly most of the time no matter what.

Pros: quick, nimble, strong brakes, reliable

Cons: rough ride, premium gas only, manual transmission gets tiresome quickly in heavy traffic

Si Review — Its a car that would want to make you jump in everytime and just drive at any distance no matter what. its economical friendly, yet you have your key performances that havent left the civic completely for all you motorsport enthusiasts. you still have the 2.0 liter i-VTEC 197hp engine that kicks in around a 4000rpm mark. sadly, you actually get around 172.9 hp and 121.3 ft lbs of torque. Even though, its a Great choice for a money saving and pretty powerful first car.

Pros: Great gas mileage, fun and easy to drive. very practical for everyday use. very soft clutch. comfortable. not alot of high maitenance costs.

Cons: ride is somewhat hard due to standard sport suspension. lagging in gear response. Cant expect alot for $20-25,0000. manual only for the "non-stick" drivers.
