For the mileage yeah, but I think a Viper would pull about 100X more ***** than a Civic no matter how riced out the Civic is.

Not really an issue for me, I'd take the civic. For all of the limits inherent in a civic, vipers are junk. I only have experience with older ones (my brother in laws partner bought one new) but they are embarrassing in everything except speed. He was also lucky to get 10K on a motor, though he drove it like he stole it.

i know 3 people with vipers, one had 50k+ miles on it and he said it was very reliable. and one is a 1000+hp twin turbo one and he has no complaints
