I have loved this car from the moment that I took my test ride. I bought the VTEC engine to get in and out of Atlanta short ramp interstate traffic. It has done the job exceedingly well. The reason for my high mileage is that it is our car of choice for every weekend activity as well as to/from my place of business during the week. My wife's TL stays home.
bought this car with 66K miles on it; it was owned by a family member who took care of it. I have taken care of it and have driven it hard many many time; i have strapped kayaks on top (three); and have trailered as many as 10...people laugh at me when i show up with this car laden with boats...but it has stood-up. This sets the bar for reliability for all other cars. With 147K miles on it, i have bought another car for replacement...but think i will hang on to it yet for the sheer fun of driving it. They just dont make them like this anymore
It handles great, so much can be done to this car, a true sport compact! Whether you want an efficient car that gets great gas mileage or you want a car you can whig out1 this car is a must buy, imports rock!
This is the best car I have ever owned! I bought it brand new and now have 190k miles on it and still runs like a charm. At 100k miles I replaced the radiator (it was leaking). So I replaced the timing belt & water pump at that time even though they weren't broken. The clutch is still original! I have had no problems with this car. Everytime I get into it I still love it like the day I bought it. I would recommend this car to anyone.
