I love this car. I have a 2007 Civic Si sedan and it has been nothing short of excellent, since I've owned it second-hand back in 2008.
The car handles very well for a FWD car and the gear shift is silky smooth. Definitely one of the best shifting transmissions, save for the Honda S2000.
Gas mileage has been very efficient averaging ~30mpg on the highway and about 25 in the city. This is with plenty of 6000+ rpm shifts. The iVTEC system is a pleasure to experience and the sound of an engine screaming at 8200 RPM is nirvana.
The torque may be rated pretty low at 140 ft.lbs but the way it is delivered is so linear that I really have no problem passing others on the highway when needed. Just a downshift to one lower gear and that is sufficient enough for virtually anyone's day-to-day driving needs when wanting to overtake.
The ride is a little stiff, but what do you expect from the sporty model of the civic. If you want a nice, comfortable ride, opt for the Civic EX/LX The Si is an enthusiast's car and begs to be driven so. Daily.
Maintenance is a breeze as with any other Honda, and the reliability has been top notch. Just an oil change, and tranny flush, and keeping the fluids topped off, and you're good to go. The up-keep is easy on the wallet and can be done in anyone's garage. Honda's are very easy and enjoyable to work on.
All in all I would rate the civic Si a 9/10 due to the fact that it fulfills 95% of all enthusiast driver's needs on a daily basis without sacrificing practicality and reliability. You can take it to the grocery store on friday and race it at the auto-x on sunday. This may very well be the last time we ever see a 8000+ RPM Honda Screamer motor, and I'm glad I'm able to experience a little piece of the Honda race engineering that dates back to their F1 days.
The Civic Si truly is a jack of all trades for the performance-oriented driver who also does not want to compromise the duties of real life....read morehide
