"Buy something slower if you have a heavy foot"5.0 starson by 4dizzle
Pros: The basics: engineering, quality, reliable, quick, handling, (relative to performance) very fuel efficient and exterior styling.
Cons: Weird dash layout: can't decide if I like it or not, but I know the upper-deck LED speedometer has saved me from more than one ticket. Visors in the 08 self-destruct; get the improved ones before warranty is up.
Summary: This is the first car I've owned that I am excited to drive after six months of ownership. After owning my 08 Si for just over two years, it's still exciting to drive this car. Also, this may be the only car I have ever driven that seems to prefer high RPMs. Other cars have me questioning just how much the mechanics can handle beyond 4K RPM--almost feels like the mechanics of the engine are filing away with friction; this car is buttery all the way to red line (8K +).
This car is packed full of performance and ergonomic features throughout its build. The quality of the build and engineering impress me. The interior aesthetics are lacking, but OK. Avoid drawing too much attention from Fast & Furious types who are likely to peel-off into traffic, and narrowly avoid several accidents.
Thanks for your submission!
