I love everything about the car. In the beginning I was disappointed in the gas mileage (~16MPG) but now that I've learned how to drive less aggressively, I'm getting 24 to 27 MPG in a mix of city/highway. The trick is to stay out of boost and under 70MPH on the highway, sure it takes patience but I've gone from 260 miles per tank to just under 400... that's a savings of about $150 per month based on the 1800 miles per month I drive.
Handling: Amazing what a set of 20x8 wheels and 275/40-20 tires + Eibach Pro-kit 1.3" lowering springs can do for the handling...feels like it's on rails, almost Corvette-like. Gas Mileage: see above, averaging 26MPG. Honda reliability: haven't had ANY problems and I'm sure I wont (my 15th Honda).
