Pros: The 4-cylinder engine has quicker response and more pick-up than I expected (and way more than the Nissan Altima 2.5). The interior is nice, not cheap (again unlike the Nissan Altima) and very comfortable both for me (at 5' and for my husband at 6'4"). The ride is quiet, smooth, and hugs the road. We were in the market for a fuel- efficient mid-size car and looked at the Altima and the Toyota Camry (our other car is a Toyota 4-Runner). Honda was our last stop because we weren't really interested in owning a Honda (everyone has one...), but one test drive changed our minds and we are pleasantly surprised everytime we drive somewhere!
The EX features: sunroof and 6-disk in- dash CD changer. Also the engine- can't tell its a 4-cyl. Great cup holders! Convenient, and the in-door water-bottle holders are a plus.
The control buttons for the sunroof are on the driver's left side next to the steering wheel. Very odd/inconvenient place. The gas mileage is not true to the EPA ratings. They should advertise more accurate figures.
