So far i've put 5k miles on the car in the last 4 months. The gas mileage is awsome, i've been averaging 29-30mpg and i'm an aggressive driver. I"m more interested in performance and sportyness ratehr than comfort but this car does a little of both. I drove it on a 6hr trip and I was fine. There is quite a bit of road noise that could be delt with by adding some more insulation to the car, theres only a couple squares of foam in the floor. The car is light and handles very well. The engine is kinda sad but Honda has managed to get well within the 100hp/L, something most american cars never achieve. The stereo isn't all that great and the quality of the interior components aren't very good.
Car will never break down. Economy, nible in tight corners, engine sounds good at high revs, good exterior styling, very practicle with fold down rear seat and large trunk, very easy to find performance mods for this car.
make DOHC standard, less road noise, stadnard 4 wheel ABS. Torquier engine, wider tires (easily looses traction on rough pavement),low quality interior (paint wearing off buttons, tabs breaking off lids and panels, fuse box lid always breaks off), better stereo, boring grey interior.
