Default 2007 Civic Si??

I like the new 07 Civic Si coupe and I don't know if I should get it as a first car. I also recently was thinking about a 05 Mazda 3 (2.3), or the 04 Acura RSX. Is the 07 Civic Si coupe good for a 1st ride? I know how to drive manual.

i think the civic si coupe is a great option as a first car. it is small, relatively good on fuel efficiency, is priced well for a reliable car and is fun to drive. i own an rsx-s which is about its equivalent, which has been a great car to me. it wasnt my first, but i can still relate. the normal civic might be more practical, but it wont be nearly as fun to drive, for an active individual. insurance will be a bit high for the si version though, but not as high as for the rsx. my older bro owns a mazda speed 3, which costs about the same, but it isnt really a first timers car also kills gas. all great options but go for the newer models. almost always better/safer options if you could afford it.

The 07 Coupe Si is a nice car, but if you do buy one, prepare to pay out big $$ for car insurance. I'm not kidding insurance on one is expensive (personal experience). It's a lot more than an RSX. It is a good car, gas mileage isn't that bad, but its not so great on car insurance. An 04 RSX would make a great first car, the insurance wont be as nice, and with some mods, you can get it done very nicely. Type-S is even better, i would try and go for a Type-S if you can find one that's not been beaten on.

The only problem with the Civic Si is higher insurance and it requires premium gas.The regular RSX would be cheaper, but the RSX Type S is the same as the Civic Si.All of these cars are reliable.The Mazda 3 handles the best and has 4 doors so the insurance is cheapest.
