This car is a lot of fun to drive around Chicago. The light weight, the 5-speed manual, the 1.5 liter engine, and the tight handling make it feel sporty. Low maintenance. High MPG. The body is solid but starting to rust a bit around the rear wheel wells. After a wash and wax, I get offers from random people on the street to buy it. Just can't bring myself to replace it. Honda really did this one right.
Low maintenance. High MPG. So many aspects come together to make it a fun little car for zipping around town.
Side impact protection is atrocious (watch an SUV almost drive through it on YouTube). No clock on dashboard. Plastic bumper cracked easily on an extremely cold day.
