I have owned this vehicle for 2 years and there has not been a day when my daily driver hasn't caused a broad smile on my face. And then there is the grin caused by a winding mountain road. Priceless. The engine is a little miracle: sedate if you like, or an angry little monster if you punch it. Undoubtedly the best manual transmission around. The handling is fantastic. The pedals are perfectly placed (heel-toes all day long). The soft top is the fastest and simplest around. Totally reliable. Totally Honda. A perfect auto enthusiast's car. No good if you are looking for creature comforts.
The easy-revving engine. The VTEC above 6000 RPM. The exhaust note. The smoothest shifter around.
Clunky tonneau cover. Weak sound system -- but then again, who needs it when you have the exquisite exhaust note.
