Outstanding car. Plenty of power, great stiff ride, German feel, good fuel econ. about 27mpg avg. I have had this car since it was brand new, and I will drive it until the wheels fall off. Of the cars in this class, this is the best one. Hatch is handy. Deceptively roomy. Great seats and steering wheel. Brakes are better than average for Honda.
Handles well. Smoooooooooth engine. Low end grunt is much better than average. Shifting is smooth, unless the transmission has been abused. Neat shifter. Seats are great.
Everyone always wants more power, Needs a bit more rubber on the road, aggressive camber eats tires, my drivers side door seal leaks a bit, floor mats are cheap and wear through, armrest would be nice
