Something Positive for a Change

Just thought I would take a chance to say some positive things about my LX after 10,000 miles:

1. 40 mpg
2. Solid handling and quiet ride
3. The iMID and ipod control are great
4. Everything under the hood is nicely set up and easy to get to
5. Changing the oil is easy; filter next to drain plug and easy to get to
6. I LIKE the way it looks
7. It's a Honda



No problems, just enjoyment. I'm old enough to know when I bought the right car. I drive 55 miles each day and I have no complaints or regrets. To all of those that piss and moan about the car, you need hobby, or a girlfriend. Just enjoy what you bought. :happy:

I wish my Si were a little bit quieter though. I came from a second gen Integra and that thing was very quiet compared to my Civic. My Integra was a 1990 model so it too went through a change for 91 due to poor reviews but I still enjoyed the car for 22 years. I'm hoping (and I'm pretty sure) that this car will also treat me as well.

I'm just wondering if I just got some better tires (and possibly dynamat my car), will what I personally think is "excessive road noise" go away.

I've read from others who have had the OEM hood and trunk insulators installed that it helps with the road noise.

Dynamat is a better solution I would think for the pricepoint, plus has additional liner for the door panels, roof, and underbody. College Hills Honda sells the factory Honda insulators if you prefer the grey OEM looking material instead of the branded Dynamat under the hood & trunk.
