Review

Had some init probs with reliability -- GM gave us a free upgrade to 72mo/100K $0 Deductable warranty. In shop 4x for vid sys modules (3x for audio, 1x for video), all were covered. Some probs w/ oxy sensor (engine light on, low mpg) covered under warranty. Intermit low coolant lgt -- air bubbles in sensor line. Comfortable ride, good perform, lots of room inside. We have 3 kids each gets their own seat! Traction control is great for snow and ice - never stuck in 5 years. Replaced weak original headlight bulbs with prem bulbs that are 3x as bright(but still not as good as my '95 F-150). Just turned 110K miles and it still drives like new.

Favorite Features

Video system (VCR in dash - very clean design, not a cheapo aftermarket add on). We use portable DVD player on trips. Comfortable seats, air pump in back. Good mpg (26 avg) + 25 gal tank = super range!

Suggested Improvements

60/40 split hideaway rear seats are a must for families with 3 kids (Honda's all or nothing design is worthless). Ventillation system weak. Brakes could be stronger. Weak standard headlights.
