I purchased this car new in Oct. '04, love it! I've had it 4 years now and have had no mechanical problems other than having to replace a battery terminal, brakes twice, and working on my 2nd set of tires. No pause on acceleration, awesome zip. Ultra comfortable interior. Stereo is great. I will definitely be looking for a new Honda next year as I pass my down to the next child in line.
Cushy seats, zippy to drive, feels real sporty.
Not very sound proof, hear more outside noise than I like. Plug in for cell phone charging turns off with the car - needs to stay on like all other cars so you can charge with car off.
