I have had my eye on this car for some time. What attracted me to this car was its great blend of performance, practicality, and honda reliability. After owning this car for about 2 weeks now I can honestly say the car is everything I thought it would be. The performance is excellent if you can keep the RPM's up as it has a 8k redline and most of the power is reserved for when the VTEC kicks in around 5500 RPM's. Cornering is solid and agile even with the all-season radials. Braking power is excellent with the 11.5 ventilated disc brakes up front which don't feel too "grabby" like my last car the nissan maxima. Steering feel is generally good although it feels a little too soft at low speeds. The 6-speed gearbox is very good, although shifting from 2nd to 3rd can be difficult at times. It feels like it does'nt want to engage ito 3rd sometimes. This problem seems to be more of an issue if you shift out of 2nd too soon. The interior design has received some criticism from the press, but I like the 2 tier dash with the electronic speedo. It really feels like you are riding in a bigger car. Fit and finish is very good with some room for improvement as some plastics don't line up well but not a big deal. Awesome car.
