Default CSX Test drive tomorrow...

I'll post impressions here... already drove the Civic so we'll see if the
RSX engine makes a big difference in the CSX

Well just got back... I'm not overly impressed having driven the Civic and
now the CSX. I can't notice much of a difference in power (if any) between
the 1.8L Civic and 2.0L CSX. The ride is much firmer and the car seems to
corner flatter than the Civic.

We test drove the Premium model... the HID headlamps are nice. The leather
seats felt like vinyl to me... and the passenger side seat heater didn't
work?? I found the sunroof cut into the headroom too much.

Around town the car was fine but on the highway it was unimpressive to
underpowered.

I did like the front fascia, fenders and hood better on the CSX but I think
the Civic EX is a smarter choice right now (six grand savings).

I drive a '04 4cyl Auto Accord so the lack of power with the CSX was
surprising considering the smaller car and similar HP.

wow if you think 155HP is underpowered, you must have hated the old civics
with only 115hp

Didn't hate 'em, never had one.

But the 155hp feels exactly like the 140hp in the Civic.

I guess the 2.4L four in my '04 Accord has a lot more torque 'cause it pulls
much better than either the Civic or CSX.
