If you are looking for a fun-to-drive car with agile handling
I am surprised no one is responding... but I guess I am too big of a ford fan

Notice that the ZX4 is the # 2 car not the hatch [rolleyes]
it's the car they drove....
they drive only one car from each model year... that is why they are so specific ... e.g. Mazda3i and Civic EX....
It doesn't mean much unless you refuse to take a crap without CR approving

Its good to hear that our cars are still somewhat on top, and Igor its good to know that you post here even though you went Mazda on us. I like the info you give out.

I used to religiously surf the general car chat, but then I move on to more specific topics. I dunno, I'm really not a huge fan of Consumer Reports, and I could really care less about what they have to say. Just my opinion, but Igor, you usually do post some pretty interesting stuff though.

I just went and drove a new Civic Si yesterday. That thing is just awesome!! It was not out yet, when those charts were compiled.

Igor, i love your avatar. The new civic makes me wanna puke.
YEah since I do not have a Focus anymore, and I had it for such as short period of time I found out I ran out of value on techincal portions of the forums...
I however am addicted to internet.. so I browse for car and specifically for related stuff.. when something interesting pops out i post it..
BTW Achilleus.. no offense, but I think ther new Civic is a good car.. and the Si is downright awesome....
I do despise Toyota however.. I had a long rant about it a while back..
