Trouble free car, only having to perform regular maintenance. 183,000 miles and still running strong. Love the moonroof, and aftermarket parts are cheap and plentiful; customization of this car is limitless. The car is quick for a 4 banger, and handling is top notch. Top this off with Honda reliability and you've got a great car. My only complaints are back seat room is limited, there are no cupholders (which have led to more than a few messes), and the gas mileage could be a little better (i get between 24 and 26 MPG with a mix of city and highway driving). Motor still runs like it is new and there is absolutely no slippage of the tranny. Give this car regular maintenence and it should give you 200,000+ trouble-free miles!! Overall, a good car, highly recommended.
The looks of the car. It's 15 years old and is still a head-turner. Also, the moonroof. I'll never buy another car without one!
Air conditioning no longer works, and lack of ABS (and not being used to not having it) has led to a few close calls.
