Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
you get a LOT of bang for your buck even though you need a lot of bucks for the age of the car.
thrash her and you can squeeze 200 miles from the 50L tank. take it easy and you get 300+. great tyres aint cheap but for this beast it is false economy to fit rubbish rubber. servicing costs are unusually low considering what lurks beneath the bonnet.
On the road
this car corners on rails regardless of how wet or dry the road is.
again, this car is blisteringly quick and extraoridinarily high top end. when vtec engages at around 6000rpm the car lurches forward at a pace you just cannot believe.
Living with it
its japanese so is unparallelled for reliability.
not famous for outrageous styling but instantly recognisable by its gargantuan boot spoiler. it will turn the heads of people who understand what its capabilities are.
the recaro seats are very supportive but after a couple of hours they seem to close in on you. the ride is firm but not anything that could rattle your teeth.
Security and Service
a factory fitted cat 1 alarm and immobiliser sounds good but, as everyone knows, if someone wants your car then they will eventually get their way.
the honda garage are good at helping out where they can.
Problems and Ownership
catastrophic failure of clutch left warranty firm with a £500 bill.

Would you buy the same model again?
