Honda Civic R-Type
Advantages: Nippy and looks great
Disadvantages: Expensive to run, Not ideal for my height, uncomfortable seats
After a car accident, we were offered one a Honda Civic Type-R as a courtesy vehicle. I must admit, at the time we were very happy with this because previous experience of courtesy vehicles has not been great!! Anyhow, after a few weeks we fast realised that maybe while the car is sporty, and better than other courtesy vehicle options, we certainly would not want it long term - just because in terms of fuel efficiency it is not
I love the features, and the fact it is incredibly nippy - but being 5ft 2, and the way in which i sit into the seat means that i cannot see the digital display properly because the top of the steering wheel covers my view - so i am forever having to sit forward so that i do not speed - again, a constant hazard of driving this car is the ability to speed up in seconds....
Having come from an Audi as well - i felt like i was having a gym workout when sat in the seats - but that could be due to the choice of interior (going from leather to suede) but even so they did take some adjusting to!
other than that, it is a nice car - it looks good - and is very nippy, just does not suit my height!
Summary: Great as a temporary measure, but definitely would not buy it!
