This is a great car. It's economical, reliable and sleek. I have not experienced any problems at all. Smooth transmission and clutch, useful hatchback, and good safety features for the price. Very sold feeling. Cloth seats are seriously awful. Try this car on before you buy... especially if you don't get leather.
Instrument panel design and red lighting. Its cool and very cockpit-like. Smooth engine. Good fuel economy (always 32 or so on highway). Exterior design.
The cloth seats are terrible. Definitely the worst seats of all the Honda products I've had. The side bolsters are awkward at shoulder level, the lumbar support is all wrong and they are just really hard. No armrest either. The steering wheel should telescope. I'm 6'0 and never comfortable.
