but I have some questions...
I am always super hesitant about buying cars, so I am REALLY asking for some serious, un-biased, informative answers please. Because I have been eyeing this car for a while now, researching it all and whatnot , and it's really making me want one. But some of the things I have been reading have also been making me be cautious and think this car isn't all its cracked up to be.
-Honestly, how underpowered it this car, in terms of cars similar in the class (STI's? GTI's? CivicSI's? Evo's? ect) and is it THAT big of an issue to most people who bought/are looking to buy this car? Right now I have a 2003 Acura RSX. To be quite honest, speed and racing ability is not exactly a concern, I am not looking to go draggin with it against 370z's and ****, I know it's not that kind of car. But I always get a bit confused when people say it's underpowered? How? In terms of what? (is top speed is 145 ish, 200 HP, ~6.8 0-60 slow?)
-How does it REALLY compare to the Subaru version BRZ? I heard the BRZ is even slower. I actually prefer the Scions body and style over the Subaru (damn smiling creepy car...) but the lack of interior luxury's is a bit of a concern. How are you FR-S owners REALLY liking the interior? It the difference between the two, or the things you wish you had in it THAT much to write home about or be upset with the lack-there-of luxurys? (Navi ect)
-I am quite inexperienced with driving a stick shift, but I don't want that to deter me from possibly getting this car in Manual. How do the two compare and what are people thinking about the differences with them? I heard and read a bit about the Auto having a 'sport' mode? That I can switch it to shift mode if I wanted to? Still not sure about the actual details on that. I live in PA, so we do tend to get a lot of snow here, how would a Manual rear wheel actually fare? I am leaning towards Auto atm because or what I heard about it.
-Overall, how are some owners feeling about their cars/purchase? Again, try to be a bit un-biased if you own one or have test driven one. Is it what you expected(what were you expecting) for the price, and it is honestly a good pick up? If it worth trading in my 03' RSX for one?
-Is this a car maybe worth waiting for till a Turbo comes out possibly next year, or a STI version of the BRZ comes, or right now, are people loving it enough to say F-that, it's great as it is?
Thanks for any replies!
