This car is FOREVER old and it's been really good. Of course, there are some things that have gone wrong seeing that it's been around since 1996. It needs a new muffler and the front windows are having issues getting up and down. Such are power windows, though, after close to 14 years! Something actually just went wrong the other day and I can't get it to turn over. Not sure what the problem is yet but it's been super STURDY and great up until now. Honda rules. Oh, and it has 180,000 miles. Not bad at all! I'm sure after I get the "starting" issue fixed it'll have much more life in it. She's given me faith!

Aside from routine maintenance, and an occasional free check up, (complements of the extended emissions warranty) this car has required less than any other car I have ever owned to continue doing its job. I love the ride, and the 5-speed keeps it fun. I hungrily admire many new cars each year, but return to the same reasoning: why spend $15-$50K on a new car when the one you are driving is perfect and virtually free by comparison. It seems almost un-American, but I'll keep my money for now.

This is an economical car! Very reliable. Costs for repairs is expensive; suspension and steering was damaged prior to purchasing, costing over $2,500 in repairs if not more. Over all a wonderful, money saving car.Will never get rid of it. It's my 3rd Honda!

I bought this car new 8 years ago and
it has been virtually maintenence free
until about 102,000 miles when it
developed a major oil leak ( broken
seal) but besides that it has only been
routine maintenance and it now has 106k
miles. It has served our family well!

Being in sales, I'm very tough on autos
and this one has lived up to the
tests. Very reliable, comfortable and
fun to drive, handles like a dream. I
had the 5 speed manual transmission
which is nice on back roads, and for
immediate extra power, but annoying in
the city. If you need something
affordable, dependable, and extremely
economical this is a great choice.
