This vehicle has been a pretty good day to day driver but the attention to detail is been lacking. Fuel economy is great and 7 years later feels tight and drives like new - but it is not without its issues. After two weeks of ownership, the interior fabric fell off the doors and need to be reglued. Stabilizer links failed at 80,000 km. Air conditioner failed at 90,000 km (55,000 miles). Exhaust manifold was cracked at 100,000 km (63,000 miles).
Fuel economy, has aged well and vehicle remains tight. Made in Canada.
Better exhaust manifold. Fix chronic A/C problems. Seats are horrible after 2 hours of driving. I also had a '97 Civic Si - same problem - get better seats!
