I have to say, this is the best little commuter car I've ever owned! Hands down Honda quality is evident in this car. I get mid-upper 40s in the city and upper 50s on the highway. I live in Colorado so its meager 60 horsepower engine isn't anything that's going to win races. However, for stop and go traffic this car has treated me well. I have replaced the clutch a few times, and overall just general maintenance. I've owned the car for 10 years or approximately 477,538 trouble free miles!! Other than that... I love my Honda CRX HF!!
Fuel mileage, superb reliability
Downsides--well... poor rearward visability (added blindspot mirrors), and the seats are no longer supportive.
