I love shifting gears, you know this.
Most press cars are automatic. So this week was real refreshing.
Shift, rev, peel, skip from 4th to 2nd, lots of superfluous revving just because I can.
I use the hazard button a LOT when I drive.
It find it more effective than brake lights alone.
See the pink arrow above? Note the positioning, the clear path from wheel to engaging the alert system? That’s how you know this is a drivers car – Honda Civic SI.
Shifting gears is easy, don’t be intimidated.
It’s like learning a little dance routine: depress clutch, shift with arm, release clutch. See? Easy.
Even in 5″ heels.
Had to give it back Monday to Honda Canada.
This week’s car, an Acura MDX.
Acura is the fancy, higher-end line of Honda.
It’s making me drive slower, like the Navigator did. I guess that’s good.
