Overall, an excellent car and just a few misses on interior fit like lining up the aluminum trim on the right side of the dash with the door trim. Some interior ticks and creaks now and then from the dash. Nice materials though. Power, comfort, lots of do-dads and nice sound system. Too bad DVD audio did not make it universally. Hard to find good DVD audios. Handles like a front driver and lots of understeer but controllable and improved from the 2002 model. Rides nice and not too noisy for a Honda product. Stock tires a joke and wear fast.
Exterior design, interior materials and design. Sound system, comfort, good fuel economy (31 avg). Trunk is very usefully shaped. Fun to drive. Lots of amenities come standard.
A little less road noise, although my new tires are much quieter than the stock ones. Michelin Exaltos, excellent wear, very good in wet, dry and snow. Interior trim fit. Silly doors are easy to get away on you and crash into some thing nearby. Just be careful folks when you open your door!!
