I bought that car with a salvage title. It was in two major wrecks before. Recently it was totaled again. I decided to rebuild it - that's how much I like my Honda! The car runs exceptionally well. It has 115,000 miles on it, but it looks and drives like brand new. My recommnedation is to buy 4 cyl. EX with 5spd - it is fair on gas and yet when the VTEC kicks in... say astalavista.
