ThaJazz said:I voted yes. To me, the sedan is such a great balance of handing, practicality, and fun that it makes up for the necessity for downshifting. The truth is that this car is quick, not fast. Having worked at a dealership in used cars, I got to drive models from Bimmers to Hyundais. The Hondas felt the best, kept their value better, had fewer problems, and had more logically-oriented controls. Is it faster than a GTI or Mazdaspeed 3 or any other hot compact out now? Nope. But will mine be worth more and last longer than all of them? Probably.
All that for just over 20K. I'd do it again.

It's also like $2k more though, so to some people it's more of a money issue. I know what I spent on my Si was my absolute limit.
