Purchased vehicle new in January 2002. Currently have 60k miles and have been pleased with the overall performance and reliability. No mechanical issues except the a/c compressor mentioned in other posts. However, our mechanic (Honda of Fredericksburg, VA) did a little research and found this problem to be occurring with more frequency; called corporate Honda and replaced the a/c free of charge. This when the car already had 50k on the odometer (and no extended warranty). It's worth the time to question Honda on this one. The one complaint would be that, although Honda makes a great, reliable vehicle, they seem to go light on interior design quality.
Fun to drive; great storage for a small SUV; customer service makes for an easy decision to own a Honda.
Gas mileage is not what we expected (low 20's); tires needed replaced at 30k; Honda only put outside air temperature display in Canadian models; no standard roof-rack;
