I love this car. I have no complaints
about power because I know nothing will
ever compare to my former Prelude. At
about 78,000 miles the power locks are
having issues (will be a few hundred $)
and the breaks are a little squeeky,
but this car is so adorable and I know
it will last forever!
Exterior design, moonroof, keyless
entree, Light Blue exterior color!
Need to remove cups from cupholder in
order to change cds! Moonroof button at
distracting position. Need read
I have been very disappointed with
this car. The only thing that compares
to it is William Hung's rendition
of "She Bangs"...it's that bad. The
transmission has gone out and still
shifts violently, manifold has
cracked, windows squeak, sunroof shade
rattles, when windshield wipers are on
they make an ANNOYING clicking sound
inside the dash, and the paint is
peeling. Also, the piece in the middle
of the trunk that holds the license
plate is probably going to fall off.
Some other things that are a
bother...everyone and their uncle owns
this car and it has the personality of
a lampshade. This car also offers FAR
less than it's European competition.
None, I am totally disappointed with
this vehicle. It's almost like Honda
has done everything to make you feel
cheap about buying their lowest priced
car. Using the turn signal sounds like
you're breaking a chickens neck.
Give this car some personality, more
power and a better shifting automatic
- Great Fuel Economy
- Great Resale Value
- Great Reliability
- Interior Ergonomics a Bit Awkward
(especially audio system position)
- Needs a bit more power
- Alloy Rims should be used on "TOP-OF-
- Automatic Transmission a bit quirky,
not as smooth as expected
- Exterior styling on the bland side
Bought it at 4 yrs. old, 21kmi, one
owner. Very good car for driving around
town--especially since it is an
automatic, not that great on the
highway. The base model is really
basic, wish it had some more features
(power locks, cruise control, ABS,
A/C). Maintenance-free so far, 20
months and 27 kmiles later. Shift
program problem: when accelerating
after slowing down to about 20mph it
shifts a lower gear and revvs the
engine like crazy, sending shocks
through the drivetrain. The windshield
wipers have a weird pattern, leaving
big portions un-wiped. Passenger-side
wiper needs to grow to driver-side
30 mpg mixed driving. Maneuvrable,
although hard to see the ends when
parking. Good "thump" when you close
the doors. Excellent trunk size for the
car. Good build quality, although
Better engine start (especially if the
gas tank is low).
Find a better place for that oil filter
than behind the engine!
Windshield wipers pattern, and make
them the same size!
Noisy engine when cold.
Timed wipers-get a continuous
adjustment on the timer.
