This car has lived up to Honda's reputation for reliability. Besides a few creaks in the interior and the open sunroof, the build quality is impressive.
Like most Honda automatics, the transmission is very sporty but it can get lost looking for a gear when you step on the gas. The 4-speed automatic saps a bit of the engines power, especially on the top end. The quality of the transmission is solid and feels extremely dependable.
The handling of this car is its best feature. It feels like it's on rails. For a front-wheel drive vehicle, you won't find a better handler.
