It's size is perfect for a smaller person, I love the way the dash board looks, and I got it in vintage plum. Since then I have come to appreciate the reliability that Honda provides. Even though I live in the NE where we get winter 6 months a year it has always started. It is the perfect size for a small family or a college student, I practically live out of mine sometimes! Seats 4 adults comfortably, 5 at a squeeze (if they are small). A great car to learn to drive stick with, it is very forgiving.
I know that people say that there isn't enough pick up, but my little 4 cyl, 5 speed has plenty of pep. It's spunky!
Paint scratches very easily, interior is a bit cheap looking especially when compared to the 2000 accord.
