Crossing over to the dark side.....

Unfortunately, my parents are picking up an '08 Civic today or tomorrow. We sold our '95 Buick Park Avenue and our '01 Lincoln Continental (mmmm....4.6L V8 Powah! ) for the 40mpg 1.8L slow thing. First foreign car we have ever bought since I've been alive. I tried to get my dad to get an '08 Focus since they're made in Michigan, but he had to have the extra 4mpg or whatever better that the civic gets. Anyway, done with the rant . I'll get pics when we pick it up. It's a 2008 Rallye Red EX-L Coupe.

while i wouldnt call them fast, they certainly aren't slow. they are zippy. they dont handle that great tho. the steering was unresponsive compared to an SVT. but then again we are spoiled.

We test drove an Si at first, because at first the car was supposed to be for my dad so he was considering an Si. But now, it's for my mom, so she wanted an automatic; therefore we got the normal Civic. It's rated at 5 more hp at the wheels than my car, but it also weighs roughly 100 lbs. more than my car, so I'd say i'd win in a race
