This is a good fun to drive in the city car. (I don't know that I'd suggest 10
hour driving days in it though) If you keep the tach below 5000 rpm it's a
fairly high mileage normal sort of Honda but if you want a performance, just
hold down the pedal and wait for 8000+... becomes a whole different car at
that point! All I've done since I owned it (bought used) is change the oil
regularly and had the timing belt/water pump done once. And like a lot of
small Hondas, if you run it on empty long enough you can get about $12
worth of gasoline in it, which seems to last nearly forever if you don't spend
all you time between 5000-8000 rpm.
Small, quick, nimble. NOT a gasoline hog.
They don't make it anymore so there won't ever be any improvements, but
would have wished for the steering wheel to not be so quite far away when
the seat is back enough for good leg room.
