My first Honda was a Civic. Great car! This is my second Honda. Bad! I had to replace the transmission at 90,000 miles, and the catalytic converter also went out around the same time. In speaking with others who own this same car, everyone has had the same bad experience - transmission and catalytic converter. Of course, these problems happen when the car is no longer covered by warranty.
It is a very comfortable car, easy for a petite mom to maneuver, rides smooth, and is great on fuel economy.
Honda should compensate owners for these transmissions and replace the catalytic converters. Many owners now are stuck with vehicles that will not pass state inspections due to emission requirements.
