205000 and still strong

ReviewBought it new and at 205000m is still strong. Never broken down. Original clutch. No rust although a NE car. Gets over 32mpg now and revs smoothly and powerfully to the redline to which I frequently take it. Absolutely no rattles -actually am amazed, especially as I installed stiffer shocks and springs F&R swaybars (absolutely essential for decent handling), done the basic engine mods and drive this thing fairly hard. Brake work is expensive though with the pressed on rotors. If I knew it was going to last this long I would have bought the EX for more power, discs all round with ABS, sunroof, and power locks. It would have been well worth the extra money.
Best FeaturesSmooth engine. Build quality matching luxury vehicles. Solid feel. Reliability. Handling since I made the aformentioned improvements, without which it is too soft and does not do the car or Honda's image any good. Well spent $14000.
Worst FeaturesNo pressed on brakes. Stiffer stock suspension.
