I bought this car in 2000 for my wife to be. Excellent gas mileage, good looks, nice handling. Overall, I wish I had bought the EX version. The fit and finish on this was not as good as my Accord. A little slow on the get-go unless you rev the engine super high. No trunk opener on the keyless entry.
Turn radius, looks, handling are all excellent. Good gas mileage. Very reliable, not one issue in 5 years. Good enough back seat even for adults if necessary.
Better fit/finish on middle console and all around. Wipers/washer are cheap. Change the gear ratio, revs too high on acceleration.
