I'll second that. Lost my '06' EX when it was totaled by a drunk driver and replaced it with an '07' SC. There is a world of difference between and EX and an SC. The SC handles sooooo much better than the EX and is also a lot more quiet. Plus, I really like the carpet and other interior upgrades like a center console, better audio system and 5-sp. automatic. Not to mention the better looks.I had a 2005 EX and then traded for an 07 SC. I liked the ex but LOVE the SC. It is different, they changed all the things I didn't like about my EX. Just my opinion. It is quieter inside as well. Oh, and I can reach my coffee now.
