The CVT is craptastic. I wont fas it except to a stop. Engagement sucks. No amount of rev matching will help. Plus it never truly disengages. It just sucks. The car would be very slick if it had a MT.

Here's the link to the London Times. I'm glad I'm opted for the 17 year old VX now.

Try a Fit. Much more fun car than a Civic or Insight Hybrid!

psy - good job on the HCH, nice choice. I liked my GEN I HCH so you should love your GEN II. I absolutely hated that CVT though...hated it! ohhhh, you went for NAVI too!?

The loaded civic is a sweet car. I took one from a dealer as a 24 hour test drive and it had everything but the leather seats. It was a nice car but they wouldn't budge on the price and I couldn't help but compare it to the way it felt to sit in the RX8.
