Default Honda Civic Si 2006-2011 Question?

'm fairy new to cars and I was looking around and the Honda Civic Si caught my eyes. I just have a few questions.































1. Which year should I buy?































2. What are the differences between the different car models (2006-2011)?































3. Should I get a use or a new one?































4. What is the best way to buy it? (Dealer? maybe something else if it exist, i dunno)































5. How would I negotiate a new car? For example if it was a use, I can say the "insert thing here" is broken and I should get it cheaper, but if it's New what can I say?































6. Are there any tips or tricks before I buy the car?































Thanks!

i would go with a certified preowned if i were you. that way you save a few dollars from the cost of a brand new one and it will have a warranty. alot of people who have owned the si have beat them up or not driven them properly. if you get a used one you might be buying one with a clutch that is 90% worn and you'll be spending $1000 a few months down the road for a new one. also the 06 and 07 models had a few problems with the transmission mostly 3rd gear. according to honda it was because of the fluid that was in them. if you get an 06 or 07 make sure they have the proper fluid in the tranny. as far as price negotiation look on kelley blue book to see what the average value of the car is.
