Bought for my wife used in 2007 with 18k miles.
It was a Honda certified.
It now has 142k miles.
A/C blew up at 60k (absolute dishonesty from Honda on this issue)
We complained to dealer and Honda; they both played dumb on the issue.
I printed off many complaints on this from this site and Honda reluctantly agreed to cover except $800.
O2 Sensors went out at 80k.
The front strut mounts have gone out several times (we live on a 1/4 long dirt road).
Overall decent reliability except the A/C.
Honda skimped on everything from the A/C, to the complete lack of sound deadening and suspension travel.
Handles well but rides horribly.
I didn't see what my wife saw in the test drive.
Decent MPG with AWD.
Dynamat doors and floor, tiny tires don't come in all terrain tread.
Demand the newer A/C compressor WHEN yours blows up!
