Bought the car with 28K miles in 2000 and still drive this car daily with now 228K!!
In fact, the car went the past two years without anything but oil changes until it was time to replace the timing belt again.
It is amazing the clutch hasn't needed replaced, nor has any other major item engine wise other than a starter over the years.
CV joints went out at 180K, and the wheel bearings are getting close now.
My wife drives and 07 sedan and my stock radio is a nicer system.
I think the brakes on this car are better than the 07!
And it survived a collision with a 6-point buck this year and all I needed was a headlight and a hood!

When you get in your car, you should expect it to work. Also, with routine and preventative maintenance, you should expect NOTHING to go wrong with the car. My Honda has been running strong for 3 straight years. I changed out the plugs, hoses, added a new muffler and oxygen sensor and at 174,000 miles it is running perfectly. I will definitely buy another Honda when the time comes, but I plan to run mine into the ground.

I bought this car last month from a
private owner. When started, the car
makes a lot of noise (is it normal??)
Runs quitely till you reach about
60mph. Drags initially but after about
30mph, runs very smoothly. High road/
wind noise. Excellent braking &
manueverability at high speed. Leather
seats are firm but doesnot provide a
good lumbar support. Too early to
comment about reliabilty. Overall,
great peace of mind.
