Pros

Easy to maintain. Great on long as well as short trips. Does have a ragtop so it can be driven yearround.

Cons

Getting harder to find parts. Road noise is a little loud. Needs a better sound system.

"summer Fun" Car. — Was originally a hatchback. Has stock ED3 engine and 5 Speed transmission. Gets great gas mileage. Easy to maintain. Great on long as well as short trips. Does have a ragtop so it can be driven yearround. All-around fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Worst Car Ever — This was the worst car I ever owned. Problems started a week after I bought it. The rear wheel bearings were grinding and the dealer would not believe me. I brought it in 5 times before the stupid car made the noise in front of them. They kept telling me I was crazy and imagining it. They finally had to eat their words. It was a semi-automatic and had no pep at all. I was afraid every time I drove it. At the end I had to put in a quart of oil every time I gassed up. What a nightmare. I know Hondas are supposed to be great cars but I sure got a lemon. Still won't buy a Honda because of this car.

Great Drive, Great Mileage, Great Parking, Plenty Of Room For Friends. By signtalker

This was my high school car, and it was the best thing going. $3.00 filled up the tank at the time, and it seemed to run forever on that little tank of gas. It took us everywhere. When it got too ol... Read More

Great Value And Wonderful For A Young Family! By Michael
