We wanted a roomy, high quality, low cost vehicle, and this is exactly what Honda delivered.
I've owned a muscle car, a Vette and the VTEC, and I have to put this little guy up there with them for performance and handling, especially when passing.
I did a cross-country trip in it, and actually slept two nights in it at rest stops.
It's a small car...likely not as comfortable as our 1996 Explorer...but 14 hour days on the road worked...and the mileage clocked in at 35mpg.
Like any Honda, I expect to drive this one for 800,000...and then bequeath it to my heirs in 20 years.
Headroom and cargo space.
I especially appreciate the computer assist with braking (it downshifts) when braking on a hill, and also when going downhill in Cruise Control.
The headrests lean way too far forward in this car.
I actually took mine off, took them into the workshop and banged on them with a BIG hammer to straighten the legs out.
Now they work fine:).
The floor over the spare tire compartment should be beefed up.
A little redesign of the armrest situation would be nice too.
On long trips, I prop my left elbow with a small pillow.
