If you are looking at one of the "performance" Honda's, don't assume that because it is a Honda that it will be economical. From my own research on smaller cars, I've found that only the baser models of Hondas get the better economy, once you get into the Si's and S2000 there's quite a difference in fuel consumption if that's important to you. Still much better economy than a '78 Granada, just sayin'.

Civic Si, best exhaust note and engine music of the crowd, great handling, roomy, comfortable and Honda ergonomics, excellent fuel economy. Honda reliability. Snickiest stick shift and clutch this side of the S2000.


I love Honda's and overall the Civic SI is probably the most reliable car of the bunch, but IMO not in the same class as the other vehicles mentioned. It's considered one of the most affordable small cars along with the Ford Fiesta and Honda fit, not a sports car, and there are probably a million of them on the road.

Tom, just my opinion but get something sporty, break the mold and have some fun on the road. And if you get a chance drive the Boxster,it's a neat little car.

Rotaries, because of their oil injection, do tend to fowl plugs if not driven spiritedly often enough. But yeah, 25k miles is probably about right. I had never priced out the RX-8 plugs, and assumed they'd be about $48 for the set, like the RX-7. Nope, the set of four plugs will run $103.02. Wires probably should be replaced every-other plug change. The factory OEM NGK wires run $42.69 for the set. The coils are pretty robust, and only need replaced if they fail, they're $43.33 each.

So...
$103.02 every 25k miles
$145.71 at 50k
$319.03 if you need to replace all 4 coils with plugs and wires

I resisted the temptation.


Why are there no pain killers in the jungle?

Because, parrots eat 'em all.

Oh, I guess that joke doesn't work outside of Europe.

What did the mathematician name his malnourished parrot?

Poly no-meal.

That's better...or worse.

If the parrot died would he call him Poly Gone?
