It’s a good looking car. They’re fun to drive.
It’s the car I really wanted when I bought my Si in 2019, but didn’t fit my budget. Glad I was able to circle back and get one. I get why it is the benchmark in its class. It does everything very well. I will say that the civic was notably bigger in terms of backseat and trunk space without having to lay down rear seats.

How much will it likely deprecate in 4 years? I know used car prices have been somewhat out of the the traditional norm lately - is that likely to continue? Is leasing a better option for the “new car every 4 years “ strategy?

I will likely consider switching to a lease on the next cycle. I think it will be to my benefit as I start looking towards high line brands with steep depreciation and expensive maintenance.

There's no telling. It will depend on new vehicle production. Having said that, it will be at least 2 years before you see significant ground stock on dealer lots....probably longer.

It sure does. Is it supposed to be a track car?
I guess I will have to read up on that.
by the way, I am in Europe and did a couple laps on the Nurburgring. Rented a Renault Clio RS there at RSR Nurburg. They opened at 530 pm and somebody barrel rolled one at about 540. I wasn’t even on the track yet when they closed it. But they got it open in time. It was fast and scary for sure.
