For a single person with no children, and someone living in a city where parking is an issue, and for someone who moves a lot, this car is the best. It's fast, it's small, it gets great mileage, and it's totally fun to drive! I drove it up and down from San Francisco to Los Angeles dozens of times in the last 10 years, and I just feel there is no better car. As small as this car is, I can fit 4 large adults very comfortably, and 5 medium-sized adults without too much of a problem. I've lugged tons of stuff, because the hatchback gives you a lot of space to store stuff. Also, the cloth interior after 11 years still looks like new. Finally, I can get up to 30-32 mpg.
Good gas mileage
Fun to drive
Very roomy inside
Compact; can squeeze into small spaces
- Manual steering can give you a work out.
- Honda should make it harder to break into (very popular car for thieves)
