"Nice kids car"2.0 starson by SuperGeek81
Pros: its "sporty" looking
the seats are comfortable
its quiet (until vtec)
its engine is very well refined and balanced
MPG was great for a 200hp car
Cons: Insurance was higher on my 07 SI then it is on my 09 Roush mustang
The stick shift sucks,
The clutch is not designed well
the interior in the coupe has major blind spots
rides like a skateboard (doesnt handle well enough for the ride quality)
Summary: Its a nice looking car, its good on gas, and sporty, but it lacks in a lot of area's in comparison to the earlier 2000 SI models. It is heavy, it rides very rough (choppy) it handles well, but not good enough to compensate for the choppy ride. The insurance cost of the car is insane, my 439hp mustang is cheaper to insure.
Bottom line, it is a nice boy racer car, but once you hit 30 you wont like it.
