I'm in Toronto, so we get quite a lot of ice and slush. Are you using ABS or disc brakes?cowtown said:Many of us have, the stock 17" tires (Goodyear RSAs) are not all that terribly great in the winter but the car is stable enough that I have yet to have an issue in some nasty snow covered ice we had here a week or so ago. If you get a wack of snow where you live (don't know your city) then I would suggest getting some aftermarket winters.
I don't feel the same way - the 2.0L 148HP/135ft lbs torque is more "giddy" than Honda's base engine w/115HP (IIRC) - the only Honda that comes close is the Si's 1.7L 127HP one, but that is beat by the 2.3L in teh Mazda3.Murrato said:Comparing comparable packages (options and engine) pricing is overall equal. That leaves style (Int & Ext) and handling. This is of course for NA cars.
