In all fairness my ride/drive evaluation are being compared to my previous BMW. It will take awhile to adjust. The change was necessary due to gas pricing. Overall I am happy with the car. The styling is very nice along with the interior. The nav system is very easy to operate. The audio system is great. Having problem with adjustable sound (SVS), not a Honda issue...operator error. Aside from the great gas mileage, my 85 mile trek to work is quickly becoming bearable especially when a visiting the gas station...$30 instead of $80.
The premium audio system is great. A must have since it drowns out the road noise.
Honda needs to lighten up on the wheel locks. They are not good quality, one trip to the local tire shop for rotation, followed by a flat tire at night in the middle of nowhere and the standard lug wrench will not remove the tire.
