Default What are some reasons to get a 2006 civic si?

What are some reasons why a civic si is better than some of the other cars? what are some competitors? Which car is more reliable, and which one is beter and why. Thanks

You can't go wrong with a Civic Si. Fun to drive, fairly quick, nice looking, decent gas mileage, with Honda's legendary build quality and reliability. This car makes 197hp from a 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC engine, linked up to a close-ratio, six speed transmission with a limited slip differential. To sum that up in less technical terms; its a decent amount of power from a pretty small package, and it puts it to the ground better than most cars. When you compare it to a Dodge Neon SRT-4, or Subaru Impreza WRX, its not as fast, but that's if your only concern is straight line speed, in which case you could do a lot better. But for a reasonably priced, sporty, quick, reliable, every day car, I don't think you could do much better than a 2006 Civic Si. I own a Honda and I love it, don't think I'll ever buy anything else but a Honda.

1st and foremost, i drive and 08 civic si (06-11 are 8th gens) and this car is ALOT of fun to drive. sure its not the fastest car out there, but can be made fast, but regardless of that, its alot of fun to drive, i avg 28mpg and thats with a healthy doseage of driving at 8k rpm. its got honda reliability built in( i dont have nany issues) also alot of small things add up, for example my car, to swap a headlight/tailight bulb its really cheap, and the clips are designed to be removed so i dont have to break them to change it, where as my exs toyota, well her headlight bulb cost $350 and you had to have toyota do it becasue theyre the only people with the bulb, and you have to break and replace all the clips to get to the bulb. (alot of lil things like that make hondas great) besides, with the 8th gen civic si, the driver is the difference in the 1/4 mile and such, just a idea, i beat v6 mustangs all day, hell i can beat the 05-06 stang gts lol. and i just have basic bolt ons. anyways the guy who posted above me hit the nail on the head, its a great, reliable, efficient car, thats hella fun to drive
