First Car Decent, Yet Lacking

ReviewFirst car I've ever owned, and it's great to drive. Started having problems around 45,000 miles with the automatic transmission not downshifing to 3rd when drop in RPM's in 4th gear, causing the drive train to "lug" as a manual transmission car would if you failed to downshift and were driving it too slow. Causes a massive rattle that shakes the whole front dash, VERY annoying to deal with when driving around town. Other than that, very peppy car, gotta love the horn, and at 100,000 and still going strong.
Best FeaturesGas mileage is excellent, 24 in town, 26 on the highway. Drives like a car, yet has all the benefits of an SUV - very spaceous back row of seats, and a large trunk and storage area.
Worst FeaturesNeeds more power, a passenger side armrest, and could use better stereo equipment on standard. All in all, for Honda's first true attempt at an SUV (Come on, the Passport is Isuzu's), it's a great first model.
