I bought this car new in 2000, my first Honda after driving Fords. What a difference a brand can make. Honda dealerships have been great. Treat women like people, unlike Ford. Car is the best auto investment I've ever made. 10 years later and 177.000 miles, it runs better than some of the used cars I've just started test driving. Also being offered $4k for trade-in. Am now thinking about keeping car (rust and all) for another couple of years. Now gets ~25 mi/gallon. Only got ~20 mi/gallon for first few years. Not crazy about styling, but car is dependable. Had front end repaired a few months ago and muffler pipe replaced last year. Other than oil changes and tires, that's it.
Dependability, no issues, mileage ok, solid construction, seat material/interior quality, dealerships/service, feel safe driving. The car runs and runs and runs.
