If you want a fun reliable car this isit with no doubt. I love the car and am a huge fan of it. There are a few issues to be aware of before you buy. I have had mine for a couple of months and it doesn't like going into reverse sometimes and the driver window neededto be tightened. The cup holders are great (even the one by the drivers window). There isn't very much storage space and the little place near the drivers shin will hold CD's w/o the cases but not with them and they fall out when you accelerate. There is no armrest but you won't want to take you hand off of the shifter long enough to rest your arm. In a nutshell this car is fantastic to drive and I do not regret buying mine!
The fact that it's a HONDA! Fun-to-drive factor, seats, shifter, handling, interior space, the dash layout.
Door guards to prevent denting, projection beam headlights, better noise dampening, a true VTEC engine not the half breed in it. A little more horsepower in the mid-range would help. An upgraded radio that plays MP3's.
