It's the 6-speed, specifically. The 6-speed in my '04 Acura TSX is the same transmission that's in this Si, and it's the best manual I've ever driven (including BMW and Mazda products). The 5-speed in my '06 Civic EX wasn't nearly as good, although it was far from horrible. » 7/12/14 10:29pm 7/12/14 10:29pm

My G8 GXP needs LCAs (at 34k miles) and has had a few electrical gremlins. One turned out to be caused by rodent damage but the rest were the car's fault. Failed CHMSL, failed central TPMS unit, and the occasional freeze of the DIC display which can only be solved by turning the car off and on. » 7/04/14 1:12pm 7/04/14 1:12pm

Same experience. I took my G8 to the dealer at 30,000 miles and five years and had them do a changeout of all the fluids (coolant, brake fluid, M/T fluid, PS) along with the standard service. I nearly choked on my pretzel when they handed me a $1,000 bill. Never again. » 7/02/14 6:31pm 7/02/14 6:31pm
