Honda 2005 Si

Been doing some research on this car lately. Anyone out there happen to own one? If so, im a little confused on how that whole shifter in the dash board works. Is it comfortable and what not? Tell me some stuff about about the car(mileage, accel, top speed, handeling)

I'd read reviews and all but i trust people here more often. People often give a car bad reviews becuase of their own stupidity of grinding the crap out of a car or just being dumb in general.

Thanks in advance.

A good solid car. The shifter is the best feeling in any car I've been in (more cars should put it where it is in the Si). It's not the best in the sport compact market by far, but it's definatley one with enough space for four and has a fun engine to play with. The handling is about mid-pack in the sport compact segment but probably the best when the HFP package is added on. To me it was the most comfortable sport compact I drove. It'll get great mileage as most sport compacts do and it should run in the low-mid 15s in the 1/4. Honestly, if you have enough money to buy an 05 Si, save up a few more bucks and buy the new 06 coupe Si. It's freakin rediculous.
