When a car's that light with small wheels/tires, you don't need power steering. Passenger airbags weren't required until 1994, but all 1992-1995 Civics came with dual airbags.

I understand that, especially with lower volume cars (i.e. sports cars). But still find it hard to swallow that Focus ST's can be sold at 30% off MSRP almost year round.

I think the complaint about new car prices ever increasing is a bit disingenuous. Consumers demand more features year after year. 80% of them which I don't give a damn about (figure pulled out of...

I can't get over how ugly it is.

Or the fact that I'd destroy a set of tires every time I went to the track (for a weekend).

The Civic is FWD and ugly as sin. And has a low revving engine. All of that sucks.

Seriously, I don't understand how someone that thinks the car is ugly would STILL consider one.
