While the engine and gas mileage are good on this car the rest of it is not up to typical Honda standards. Right after purchasing it the trunk was leaking due to a seam that wasn't welded properly. The little bit of metal that is used on the body is cheap- dents very easily. Had light bulbs burn out in less than a year. Original tires are cheap-had to replace after 2 years and that's with snow tires on at least 5 month/yr. At not quite 3 years old new shocks and brakes. Oh and my favorite the turn signal/4 way relay switch I believe it's called just died for no reason-replaced at my expensive of course. And now the cd player decided to stop working. It loads and ejects w/o a cd in it.
The gas mileage is the only redeeming quality of this car.
How about a bigger trunk opening? The trunk itself is a good size but the opening is useless. Why can't Honda make another hatchback that isn't that ridiculous SI model? Heck why can't Honda make a car that lasts more than a couple of years? Oh yeah because they're made in the USA now.
