I have been in 3 crashes since I purched this car in March of 2005. Though slighly injuring my neck and upper shoulder areas, I escaped with no serious injuries. It is the safest small sedan on the market today IMHO. I generally get 35-40 mpg. July 27, 2006, I just turned over 10,000 mi. It is better than the 2 Accords I previously owned. I am very satisfied with my decision.
Cup holder is in a difficult place to reach larger cups without losing lid and spilling. Would like electric defroster/defogger in side mirrors and collapsable side mirrors.
