    The Ridgeline won the Compact Truck contest in Car & Driver this month
    (beating out the Chevy Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Nissan Frontier, and Toyota Tacoma)




    I know its trucks and most people don't care, the point is Honda won...

    The Si doesnt get released til december or so thats why.

    Everything I hear about the new civic is good, the styling however i think will grow on people.

    I've driven one... AMAZING... Like... Honda couldn't have nailed it better. The only thing that i could think of to make it the "ultimate" would be a supercharger.

    They won because most magazines hang from Honda's nuts.

    Yeah, good point. I think the last time I agreed with them was in 1982 with the Supra.

    the Cobalt SS and Saturn Ion are most definatly NOT better than an RSX-S...

    I didn't mind the Cobalt, a friend of mine got one. I wouldn't own it, but I wouldn't own the RSX either.

    My brother has an 06' RSX-S. Definitely a sweet car. It's incredibly tight feeling and has plenty of power. The only downfall I think to the car is it doesn't really shove you back in your seat. The torque still really isn't there, for daily driving that is.
