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.
