Cute car with great gas mileage. I am a first time Honda owner. The sound system sounds fine to me. There is significant road noise but I just turn up the radio and it doesn't bother me. My only complaint is that the seats are very uncomfortable. My Toyota is much more comfortable. The dash is impressive. I don't mind the emergency brake placement either. If Honda's are as good as everyone says, I will drive this one for a long time.
The style and fuel economy.
More comfortable seating. I have yet to get my seat adjusted just right. It hurts my back and the seat feels too hard.
