I drive about 20k per year. This car takes my lead-foot abuse and has been such a great car. Drove from Indiana to California and back through ice, wind, sleet, snow, hail, and desert heat. This little car is a trooper. I get about 40 mpg on highway, 30 in city. No problems so far. Car had 11k when purchased in April of 09 and now has 40k. Had to replace the brake pads at 20k which kinda irritated me, but the overall quality of this car makes up for it.
I absolutely LOVE the "controversial" 3-Tier dash/speedo layout! Awkward for the 1st week, but once I did some highway driving I learned to appreciate it. The cup holders are perfectly placed as well as the slider armrest. I'm 6' and 280 lb and it's plenty of legroom for even big guys.
My only suggestion would be something Honda already did, get rid of that suede fabric. It has a tendency of making your shirt hike up, kinda annoying. I see the 2010's do not have this fabric. Good thing.
