You obviously haven't driven a festiva before, have you?DeathSlinger00 said:...and neons i hear, are the worst (often referred to as a "death trap").
Not to rip on you, coyote, but many people think that.. but Honda engines are usually very torquey considering their displacement and revvy character. Many honda engines are over-square (longer stroke than bore) and have fairly high compression ratios. Sure, a 1.6L B series civic engine won't have as much torque as a mazda 1.8L BP... but a 1.8L B series motor out of an Integra GS-R will embarrass the hell out of a 1.8L BP across the powerband. Hell, I've never even driven a civic that I felt I had to string out to get moving. Hondas don't make good power on revs alone.coyote-x said:Civics, I think, are more sporty, slightly more reliable perhaps (depending on which model/year of escort you're comparing) but lack torque, I.E. off the line power.
