This car has taken me 66,000 miles without the slightest problem. I drove my last Accura RSX to 180,000 miles on the original clutch. You cannot say too much about the reliability of Honda products. In good old flat Florida the 1500 cc engine is just fine. I found the engine to be very busy in the mountains when I drove out to LA. The handling of the Civic is OK but once you get used to an Accura you are ruined for anything else. My next car will be another RSX.
In a tropical climate a sunroof is an absolute joy. Sunshine and 38mpg is a great combination.
The lock on the fold down rear seats is a big nuisance. The original tires were not worthy of such an excellent car. They failed in just over 30,000 miles.
