Not what we expected from a Honda

ReviewWe bought this car new and it was good for about 50k miles. First problem was that the front door locks simply stopped working. Then the cheap plastic parts in the interior started breaking. Then a problem with the VTEC system. A mechanic said that dirt had prevented the extra set of valves from engaging when the engine needed more power. We were not doing any heavy duty off-road driving, so that was strange. Now, like other readers, our throttle sensor has gone out and it is going to set us back $900 to replace the whole unit. I'm sorry, but this is not why we bought a "reliable" Honda. Seems like the company is coasting on its reputation and I'm not enthusiastic about buying one again.
Best FeaturesPlenty of power with the VTEC.
Worst FeaturesPerhaps Honda should issue a recall for the throttle sensor, or at least make it possible to replace just the sensor and not the whole unit.
