I bought "Ellie" brand new and haven't regretted it one day, in fact the closer I get to pay off the more excited I am to see how many miles and years I can keep her on the road, we're only at 116,000 so far. I see us well into 250,000+. It is the most all around usable vehicle I have ever owned. It is transportation, out of the weather hauling, car camping,and a quick nap at lunchtime. She handles the snow and ice, the mountains and loves being loaded with camping gear. I see no reason to ever have any other vehicle.
Cargo space, easy to keep clean, clam shell doors. Fold up seats . Excellent turning radius. Stadium style seating in the back. Head and leg room in the back.
Somehow fix those A and B pillars blind spots. Too bad Honda just put the cooler in the 2009, it would have been great in the beginning 2003. Provide the legs to the "table" tire cover.
