I bought my '04 SiR (Canada) with 180 000 km on it, a mechanic used to own it, so it was still in great shape, compression was A1 and took no oil.
I'm now at 220 000 km and still runs awsome, very reliable little car. Didn't do much repairs on it except regular maintenance.
I use it as a daily driver and do at least 180 km a day on average, it gets great mileage and hasn't let me go yet.
Above all, it's a blast to drive, handles great, but in a weird kind of way: understeers a lot, but it will still manage to get around the corner very quickly.
My only complaint: Needs more power, it tends to feel weak at low RPM's, but thank god, like all Hondas, it loves to rev :)
Handling, Seats, Engine and Transmission, Hatchback Design, Gas Mileage.
Needs more power and a sixth gear, it would really improve mileage on the highway.
