ReviewWe purchased the car for the low price, standard features and fuel economy. On the plus side, fuel economy is good and is near the rated numbers. The engine is anything but smooth, and does not like to be revved above 2,500 RPM without a lot of coaxing. Clutch throw is nearly a foot, transmission is clunky; it is NOT fun to shift especially around town. The computer keeps the engine between 2,000-3,000 between shifts which sounds and feels totally awkward. The car developed several creeks and clunks right away. Not impressed at all; I wished we would have bought another Honda instead!
Best FeaturesTremendous value with current dealer incentives. The car looks nice and had a long list of desired standard features
Worst FeaturesShorten clutch throw for heel/toe clutch operation, redesign shifter gate and shorten shift lever for wrist- action shifting. Eliminate the engine RPM float between shifts. More effort is needed to balance engine and drivtrain. Make the car as fun to drive as it looks.
