"Best little car I ever drove"5.0 starson by jadummett
Pros: Cornering, accelerating,sound system.
Cons: The ride is a little bumpy but to be expected in a small car. Vehicle comes with XM but you can get the best of Sirrius to add.
Summary: I bought this vehicle for economy but needed performace because I live in the high Sierra's . The si is fast enough for anyone who obeys the laws. It will get you from 0 to 60 in a little over 8 seconds, In real life you want the car to accelerate quickly from normal driving speeds to passing speed and this vehicle does that and more. In fourth gear , 3500 rpms and 40 mph, the si will zip up to 91 mph in about 4 seconds in 4th gear, 6500 rpm. I guess I must be getting old, but when you are in 4th gear going 91 mph and you still have two gears and 3000 rpms need I say more. If anyone out there like me who enjoys driving a car normally and not to push the pedal to the metal in order to get from point A to B the si is the way to go. Driving on mountain raods is a joy now instead of a hair raising event. The car hugs the road like the tires were magnets and the road was made of metal. Like a high performace jet you don't want to over steer. Small movements gets you around the corners and the front seat desogns keep you firmly in place. For the timid folks out there the si has four hand grips. The back seat also has three point seat belts so everyone is secure. The vehicle I bought has a moon roof, when open creates very little cabin noise if any at all. For all you middle agers out there all the way to old codgers the si is all the sports car you will ever need. It will surly make you feel alive when you feel your heart beat increase driving this car.
Thanks for your submission!
