I have wanted to purchase a Honda for a long time & always ended up buying something else because you could get more "amenities" for the money. Then I bought a Volkswagon Jetta VR6 & got a LEMON! Forget about amenities! This car is awesome. I was worried about driving a car with a manual transmission after driving automatics for 10+ years. No problem, this car makes it fun.
The excellent pickup & the engine sounds. I have been "pushing it" & I am still getting 29+ miles per gallon. Who could ask for more?
