I bought this to drive to and from work because of the dependability and resale. This is my first Honda and I bought it with just 23K. It replaced my Ford Escort. Gas mileage is about 1 or 2 MPG better than 2002 Escort. It sits better and has better acceleration than the Escort. Honda gets about 32-36 MPG to and from work which is about 8 miles in town, 34 miles on freeway. I do not just drive it in town. It gets twice as good of MPG as my Mountaineer!
Sunroof/Moonroof, cruise and comfortable drivers seat makes for good commuting. Trunk is roomier than I thought. Good gas mileage. Very good response from steering.
Front stereo speaker quality is poor. Windshield wiper spray and wipers are weak. Tire quality is an issue when driving through snow. Looking over your shoulder to see the blind spot is a problem.
