I bought this car new and it is a
justified success story. It always
starts and runs smoothly,getting great
gas mileage all the while(36-40mph
hwy). All I do is change the oil,rotate
the tires, and wash it occasionally
while driving about 15k mi. per yr. My
original tires lasted 49k miles and I
will not do a tune-up until 60k miles.
Overall, it's a very solid car for a
reasonable price. I have friends with
over 200k miles on their Hondas, so I
expect to keep this one awhile. The
only problem I had was a loose front
passenger int. door panel which was
replaced quickly by the dealer at 5k
shifting,turning, and parking.
insurance costs are low. the ride is
not bad at all for a compact car.
slightly bigger engine which I believe
was added to 2001 model.
