Got married and moved to the country so needed to get rid of BMW convertible and get something practical. As a consolation, picked the five-speed manual which increased the fun factor. This is my fifth Honda/Acura product and they never disappoint. Five practically flawless years.
Smooth manual and good acceleration, adjustable rear seats slide fore/aft and recline, great visibility, tons of space with seats folded up. Getting 22 mpg in mostly "spirited" highway driving.
Six-disc CD player went out after three years, but no other problems. Not a true off-roader; bent a rim on a badly- rutted backroad, but driving too fast and hardly the car's fault.
