Purchased used with 32,000 miles for less than half the MSRP. Even with the sport suspension this is not the ultimate driving machine. The 2.5 six is underpowered and the ride can be harsh. I like the look of the wagon body, but the styling is a bit fussy. The interior is comfortable but uninspired. Would never buy an overpriced new one. I still have my 94 Honda Accord wagon which continues to impress me.
Heated sport seats, nice hunkered down look, smooth braking power.
Better interior styling and packaging, More powerful engine, longer lasting brakes, power windows that don't break, less plastic trim at door sills and hatch, more back seat leg room.
