I bought this vehicle mainly for its fuel economy and low ownership cost, and it's ok in those regards. However, I'm disappointed by its rough ride, noisy engine and cabin. I find the controls and interior details annoying. For example, the accessory power stays on only when the ignition is on, making it impossible to keep a cell phone charging overnight. The window lock on the drivers side prevents even the driver from operating the windows. You can't lock the doors with the remote unless all the doors are closed and if you unlock the doors remotely and don't open a door right away, it locks itself again. Honda, stop trying to protect me from myself -- it's annoying!
Fuel economy, tight turning radius, good resale value.
Smooth out the ride, reduce noise, rethink controls.
