This has been a nice little car.
Performance is great. The EX goes 0-
60 in 8.5 seconds, which is excellent
for an economy car and is comparable
to much more powerful cars. Rather
harsh ride is an acceptable tradeoff
for great handling and not out of line
for an economy car. Funny thing I see
here is the transmission that so many
people complain about was built in
Resale, reliablity. We have had no
mechanical problems in 29,000 miles.
Drives great for an economy car, and
gas milage has been consistantly good,
over 35 mpg at 75 mph. Handles icy
Questionable build quality and
numerous squeaks and rattles are not
what I expected in a Honda. I wonder
if it will live up to Honda's
reputation for reliabilty down the
road. Dump the Firestones. More
backwards seat travel so my 6'3" frame
can be comfortable on long trips.
