ive always been afraid to buy an awd car for fear that id eat the clutch in no time. i fried the input shaft bearing and the seal out of my civic(you have to drive it hard just for normal driving- has no power to move) im putting a stage 2 clutch and flywheel in my honda for now, but when i sell it i want a car that can handle my driving. i like to roll into the throttle (no launch) but the honda is like an on/off switch. i dont want to go through this again.the hondas good on gas , but thats it!
