Finally Bought a Honda

Well, I am still trying my taste of manufacturers. After my problems started to mount up with the VW, I wanted out, so I decided to go with Honda this time. I also wanted something with a little more pep, as the Jetta was god awful slow. So I snagged this 06 Civic SI with only 11k miles, I put more than 11k miles on my bike in less than 3 months in the summer, so that is nothing. This thing feels just like my gixxer 600, high revving, power band kick past 5k . Not for tall people, I am 5"8 and my head about 2 inches from the ceiling. I think I shall be happy with this car for a little while. Also, I have unlimited Carfax reports for almost 30 days, so if anyone needs reports emailed to them, just let me know.

Congrats!

I own two Hondas. My only mode of motorized transportation. Plenty of power and reliability.

NICE!

I dig the SI, its a great value. I've been a fan of Honda products since my old rustbucket '86 prelude that just wouldn't die.

Yeah, I was looking for reliability, right past 70k the VW just started to have all kinds of problems. I wouldn't have felt right even selling it to a private party as they would have tried to sue me in People's Court for its condition. I would have had to stress the AS IS point clearly .

Yeah, today I thought, should I test drive the car some more, then I realized the temps would be in the 60s and no rain, so the car is sitting at home .

I had a 2002 Civic Si. You know, the one that liked like a mini version of a mini van . Ugliest Si EVAR!!!! Fun to drive though and it had the stick on the dash, rally style.
