Notice that the ZX4 is the # 2 car not the hatch

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

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.

Thanks guys..

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..

Igor
