Love this car. It has great gas mileage and is still comfortable to drive.
PROS: The car I was driving before this one was a modified, fast 1996 Acura Integra (awesome car, too), but this Honda Si with the VTEC engine is so much faster! I love the sleek and sporty look it has. The dash is very user-friendly, with the radio buttons and climate control knobs within easy reach, and simple operation, as well as having radio and cruise controls on the steering wheel. The large, sloped front windshield allows good visual of everything in front of you. The driver seat comfortably contours around the driver. The stick shift is within comfortable distance - no stretching your arm to reach it or having to curve your wrist in an awkward position, which could cause carpal tunnel pain. At night the dash lights up very nicely and the headlights work wonderfully. The digital speedometer on the upper dash is right in the line of sight, making it very convenient to look out the front window, or rear-view mirror, and check your speed without having to adjust your line of sight much. When the VTEC kicks in it is awesome, very fast! This car has no problem with get-up-and-go when you need it to. The steering is tight and the car hugs the road nicely. I've heard I'm lucky that my Si came with the HFP wheels and suspension, making my vehicle and all-around excellent car! CONS: It is challenging to look out the rear window when backing out of a parking space because the window frame sides are wider than the average car due to having air bags in them. This, in addition to the small triangle backseat windows. I appreciate the safety of the backseat airbags, but I wish it was easier to see.
Quality, Dependable, Great gas mileage. Stylish. This car has a smooth ride, and its has low emissions and smooth transitions when driving. Honda's are known for the longevity. Keep your oil changed on a regular basis with the standard month to quarterly check ups and you'll pretty much be able to operate in peace of mind.
