As for blind spots: the B-pillar is thick, but the rear passenger windows allow for more than ample eye sight (these are things you notice on a test drive, not 2 months later!). As for the quality ext./int. yes its cheaper, but for the price the quality is more than sufficient, and the design is quite nice. Go look at Chevy and tell me you don't love Honda interiors. Performance wise, this is sufficient, but definitely not sporty. The engine has 140 hp@6300, and 128 lb-ft@4300. So really, I've no complaints about this car, and have been quite happy with its MPG. I recommend it to any one needing an economical car that is almost guaranteed to last 300,000+ miles if you care for it.
Comfortable ride. Telescopic steering wheel. Folding rear seats. Excellent MPG. Smooth transmission. Relatively quiet interior. Excellent steering, although overly light. Interior design blows all equal priced competitors away. Honda made, so its good for 300,000+ miles under proper maintenance.
Offer leather interior. Include stereo controls on steering wheel.
