I paid $16,700 OTD for my 07 LX sedan that's like $15,300 invoice...Gaspar_06_Civic_EX said:15k for an Lx civic? Where...
:thumb: perfect analysisJay Kincannon said:The article was "quickest" for under $20,000. I looked at the times listed for all ten cars and they, if correct, are true to the title of the article. As to the first place V6 Mustang, I had an 05 V6 Mustang and it will run circles around my 06 EX Coupe as far as engine performance. That is the only thing that will beat my Honda. Gas mileage with my Honda around town is improved by a minimum of 12 MPG. The sound system of my EX is far superior to "top of the line Ford product". The Mustang is no match for the Honda's handling. After spending about $2,500 on the Mustang ( struts/shocks/springs, frame stiffing, rear upper/lower swing arms, strut tower brace, front/rear tie bars, and larger tires) it only took the $600 for the HFP sport suspension to improve my handling to match the Mustang. Got to love that. The only thing about the article is that I agree with is the various "noises"....JMHO
pks17 said:I think some of u guys got this all mixed up, The ford mustang v6, will out run our cars, 0-60, quartermile, slalom, lateral grip, looks,''The only thing the civic has it beat on is,Reliabiltiy, buying price, and of course fuel milage. Quality control isnt so great on the 8th gens, just read the forums about 3rd gears, low class interior panals, road noise,
But to sum it all up, the little V6 4.0L mustang is enough to run with the Big dogg civic SI!
And dont underestimate the handling of the GT, it ll run circles around any civic not wearing a SI badge,...
1.8L vs 4.0Lpks17 said:Yes , true, but we have to compare apples to apples, If you slapped on better tires and maybe GT springs on the pony, the story wouldnt change.
And the eighth gen civic is far from light weight. i think its listed at 2700, and we all know the real weight is very close to 3000lbs for a fully loaded EX.
And very true point about the v6 being a pointless car, i agree 100%. but lets face the facts, its still got the civic beat any way that involves moving. So with that being said, our civic may be the sad one when it comes to performance numbers.
Did you know that the newer 4.0 in the v6 stang has more power then the 1990s 5.0L had. And we all know how bad ass those are. No comparison!
And a honda with a 2.4 wouldnt run any better times then a TSX, which the V6 stang can out accerlerate anyday. Look at the stats.
our cars are meant only for MPG, relaiability, and a little bit of style(8th gen only)
Even the SIs are pretty lagging compared to cars in the 30K range.
What are you talking about -- The facts are the Civic is one of the lightest cars sold today. Probably the lightest car of that test group. And by far way lighter than the Mustang.pks17 said:And the eighth gen civic is far from light weight. i think its listed at 2700, and we all know the real weight is very close to 3000lbs for a fully loaded EX.
