#1242 of 3321 2002 Quality and JDPower re gee35
Nov 20, 2002 (11:10 am)
The JDPower Initial Quality for 2002 does not list a Honda as #1 for any segment. http://www.jdpa.com/presspass/pr/pressrelease.asp?ID=2002040 Corolla beat the Civic and Chevy Malibu and Buick Century ousted the Accord.
My purchase of the Si was based on fun/value/reliability and I expect that my Honda Si will not be disapointing over time. A Matrix or Vibe would be what I would likely choose if not for the Si.
JD Power and Consumer Reports can be cited until I am as blue in the face as anonymousposts to support many different viewpoints. The websites you listed are just private consumer webpages. Is this the most relevant info. you could find?
What is your point? That I should have purchased a 1997 Civic?
My point is that the Civic Si may potentially have more problems than other Civics. Swindon product is unproven in US.

for me, would be...17" or even 18" rims -- SEMA Sis mostly wore 18" and I watched a show on Speed or ESPN that fitted 18" rims, after trying out 17" ones. The 18" looked better as it filled up the wheelwell much better. That, and maybe lowering springs.
I think the engine is powerful enough, but that new Greddy turbocharger looks very tempting, especially if it can get the engine to pump out 230hp!
moparbad, I too am older than the target audience. But hey, who says we older folks can't have fun?

Have you seen many Civic Si in Antartica? How many Honda dealerships are there in Antartica?
#1245 of 3321 To respond to recent posts: Let's please try to get along...
Nov 20, 2002 (11:32 am)
and stay on topic. Discussion of Honda fanatics, bashers, and Odyssey/Accord transmissions (post is off topic for this discussion. Okay?
Also, now that certain people have had plenty of opportunity to express their different points of view regarding certain Civic Si problems/issues, I'm going to suggest that you put your differences aside... and let's move onto another Civic Si subject.
Please note: any further back/forth bickering between certain parties here (I'm sure you know who you are) will be subject to automatic deletion. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions/comments. Thanks!

#1246 of 3321 ? Anyone figure out how to add 12V power receptacle?
Nov 20, 2002 (12:01 pm)
There is only one 12V accesory outlet in the 2002 Si and I would like two. I checked with dealer and the cigarratte lighter accessory replaces the power outlet and does not add an additional outlet. Has anyone figured out how to add another plug? The unused plug to the right of the shifter is where I am trying to locate an addition 12V accessory outlet. Do you think I could just split off of the existing power wire that supplies the current accessory outlet?

What does the EP stand for? There is a site about the Si called EPHatch and I was curious if anyone knew the meaning of EP.
Nov 21, 2002 (5:43 am)
Ep is the code for the chassie (sp?), and 3 is ver. 3

25K is pretty good considering what you get. It will have uprated shocks, springs and brakes vrs the RSX-S plus those great seats. Of course the price of the WRX is so cheap here vrs what they command for it elsewhere in the world. I think cars in the US are much cheaper than Europe and Japan. If they can import a Civic Type-R for 25K what would Honda sell it for when they bring it over?
#1251 of 3321 Si Falling Prices
Nov 21, 2002 (12:28 pm)
$14,599 at Colonial Honda. http://www.colonialhonda.com/ Seems like Walmart lately as the prices keep going lower. Anyone see Si for less? I have an unconfirmed report of $13,750 but I need to see it to believe it.
