I bought this car in 2006, and have not had a single problem. I love taking it up past 5000 (and so does it). You can't give this car too much abuse. It just laps it up. Although, I agree with top gear, it is a "bit of a tripod". It handles like a dream, and accelerates like a bloody rocket! I'm averaging about 30-35 on the highway, and that's at a constant 6500 rpm! I'm pretty sure if I slowed down a bit, I could get better mileage. Nah...
The gear lever. Right in the center of the dash. I have always been a fan of rally ingenuity, but in a Honda? That's unheard of. Plenty of room in the back seat, and the boot is just HUGE!!!
A little more torque would be ideal. 132 ft.lbs just is not enough to launch the 2700 pound car quickly enough.
