It's a little car but it's quiet, fun,
peppy, and the economy is a thumb in the
eye to the oil companies. The Honda
quality is evident though we have a bit
of a dash rattle. The two anti-theft
systems got us an insurance break. The
car asks nothing special of you but
beware that it's built for economy and
not tire-shredding takeoffs. We
routinely get better than 55 mpg in town
and 48+ on the highway, better than the
EPA numbers and better now than when
brand new (10,400 miles ago). This is a
CVT which "outmileages" the manual by a
Mileage (duh). Easy to drive and park.
Nice sound system. Standard antilock,
cruise, AM/FM/CD, power locks, windows.
The center console gets in the way and
is really pretty useless. How about
daytime running lights. They do it for
the Canadian models. One should be able
to roll up the windows once the car is
shut off. More color choices.
