2000 EX 4 cycl w/ leather purchased new for $20k. 88k miles & running strong. To date, only had to replace oil/air filter (normal sched), light bulb in clock (at 20k), brake pads & tires (at 60k), battery (at 84k), and transmission (at 84k, covered by warranty - known issue for this model). Also had dealer clean out sticking throttle body (at 84k). Just replaced windshield wiper blade inserts (at 86k). That's everything to date. The driver's side window squeals sometimes (probably due to tint install) and the cupholder lid doesn't close properly (appears to be a broken hinge); can live with all that. Overall a very good car for the price; very reliable; good exterior/interior design/quality.
Interior doesn't look/feel cheap like a lot of new cars these days; basic, but functional. Really like all the storage space and the sunglass holder. Comfortable to own and drive. Great gas mileage. A little conservative, a little sporty, all purpose vehicle. Will drive until the wheels fall off.
Definitely the transmission (very dissappointed with Honda). Way too much interior road noise when on the highway (can barely hear my cellphone). Power driver's seat is too stiff; front passenger's seat is very comfy; wish i could switch them. Throttle pedal sits too high; foot gets tired on trips.
