Uncomfortable driver's seat. Limited
seat adjustments, awful slope to the
back of the seat. At 80k miles the
temperature selector knob failed due to
a broken linkage cable behind the dash.
Expensive repair; required remove the
entire dashboard. Entire air
conditioner failed, resulting in
$1,300 repair bill. ABS pump makes
scary noises and the ABS idiot light
flickers at times. yet dealer insists
nothing is wrong. Brakes are
inadequate, despite servicing from
Honda who claimed they performed to
specs. The factory stereo system is
anemic. The 1.5L engine, even with
manual transmission, is barely able to
get out of its own way.
Dual air bags.
More power, better driver seat comfort,
a decent stereo system, actually fix
the poor design of the A/C system.
