2007 Honda Civic Si Coupe
There are 6 user reviews for the 6-Spd MT w/ Performance Tires trim shown below
- You do stand out in the crowd. Limitied production. Great mileage. God speed for being a stealth car
- You can get carried away with the extras..HFP stuff..spoilers..wheels..tires..all good but pricey!
All my friends and family looked at me quite funny when I told them I was waiting for a CIVIC. Being quite a car buff and motorcycle speed freak they all said "What on earth are you doing with a Honda Civic?".
I have in my family's toy chest (garage) a Infiniti G35 coupe (2003), a Maxima SE (2000), a Honda Accord EX (1998), and a Toyota X-runner (2006). All of them 5 speeds / 6 speed manual transmissions. I have 3 motorcycles.. 2003 100th anniversary Fatboy...2005 Yamaha Vmax...and 3 month old Kawasaki ZX-14....so........
I wanted something I could use as a daily ride with good gas mileage and most of all have a good time with. I was disappointed in waiting so long for the car to come in... (3 months)... but it is worth the wait. Driving it around town is easy. It shifts easily and with a good short throw. The nay sayers will talk about torque but you have to know the power band my friends. My SI will move willingly from gear to gear smoothly and with speed that is truely uncommon for such a economy car like a Civic. It is the first car I've owned that combines economy with proformance. But it is a driver's car. If you like to run through the gears with gusto and not draw too much attention. This is the one.
It will head down the road with you smiling and singing a happy tune.
OK ...so my SI will not go 0-60 in 2.8 seconds like my ZX-14 but if you want a stealthy pocket rocket that will knock your socks off... Go get one...or go wait for one... I researched the car and compared it to all the others like the GTI (Not the best parts network / dealer in my area. and the Mazda Speed3 (5000.00 over list?)..I guess that is why my SI was COTY 2006. It has all the safety features too..Honda has a good safety reputation and service record. Because of the limited production I trust my SI will hold its value in the future. In a way I am glad Honda did not flood the market with these SI's. I get to be one of few to enjoy the ride.. You could too..This is one fun car! God Speed brothers and sisters!
