    I've been considering checking one of these cars out. They seem to make okay power and do well on gas, plus have modability, so I thought it would make a good car for school. Any cons to the car? Besides knowing the Si is probably going to get stolen and stripped for parts..

    Great little cars for what they are, very reliable, resonably peppy, can be made to handle very well and are great on gas.

    I would say watch who you buy the 99-00 Si from. There are many people who bought those cars cause they were "fast." People modded, and possibly beat the car while driving it. That car is also notorious for being stolen and stripped.

    yeah, I'm trying to look for one that is stock, that'll probably help narrow out the ones that have been beaten on and raced. The area I live in isn't really known to have car theives, but yeah I noticed the Si gets messed with alot
