This car is classic Honda: wonderful
fuel economy and reliability, agile in
driving (I'm a stick-shift fanatic so I
chose the 5-speed), virtually
worry-free, and overall nice looking.
Drawbacks: being a small hatchback,
naturally, the back seat leaves
something to be desired-- barely enough
room for kids but I imagine people who
buy this car probably don't have kids to
begin with. Bottom line: if you like
small, zippy, Euro/Japanese cars, this
is definitely the one for you. Am a
lifelong Honda fan.
Good tranny (shifting a breeze), fuel
econ, 82000 miles with only scheduled
maintenance. (Even the brakes are still
at 50 % at 82k! Of course, I'm
primarily a highway driver.)
None for this class of car. Honda does
it right again and again.
