At 57,000 miles, overall the car has been ok, but, I have had both rear wheel bearings and the rear control arms replaced. This was due to a factory problem which caused a rear tire to severely cup. All OEM tires were replaced at 45,000. The past 10,000 miles the transmission is making strange clinking noises when accelerating from a stop. A low roar has developed in the exhaust system. The car handles well but road noise is still a problem. Comfort isn't too bad but the emergency brake handle needs to be relocated. Overall I like the car but I will be trading in for a new Accord as I no longer need a commuter car.
Style, dash set up, handling and interior design. Excellent paint and finish. Good size trunk. 40 mpg on the highway. Good visibility.
Move the emergency brake handle as not to press on right leg while driving. Honda needs to take another look at the running gear design. Need to improve road noise suppression. Roof metal needs to be strengthened (too thin).
