Just bought one of these... had it for less than a week. Initial feeling is that I do actually love this car
I shopped around before settling on a Honda. I've been a fan of the VTEC system for years and finally decided to come away from the turbos and straight-6 engines in favour of some high-revving 4-pot fun
I'd recommend one, mate. Although as with any car, arrange a test-drive, if possible. Might not be for you.
I'm 6'4" and I could use an extra few inches of room, but aside from this, nothing presents itself yet as a problem. As I say, I've only had it since Friday, but yeah... thumbs-up so far
It accelerates ferociously in the VTEC power-band with a lovely angry, gutteral note. It's subtly styled, being a 5-door hatchback but the small aesthetic touches that ome with the VTi-S make me glad I held out for the special edition and didn't settle for a VTi.
The paint work is pleasing, too. Pirate Black has a cool purple gloss to it, when viewed under in daylight. Cool stuff.
Is the 1.8 v-tec faster than the 1.6 v-tec? in sum cases there not, on diffrent makes, ford ect... and id love to no what you felow civic fans think is the best v-tec engine out there? vti, vti-s, the ltr. ect...? and diffrence if you no?
