Pros

Does not break down + cheap to fix if it does

Cons

Terrible on icy roads

25

Good For The Money — Gets great gas mileage, does not brake down ever, have 225,000 miles and still not much for issues, be careful in winter it like to slide around like crazy. Acceleration was okay, I cant speak for the auto version but the manual tranny was a breeze and very forgiving. overall its a good car for getting around, you wont win any races with it or make any heads turn, but for a cheap car you cant get something much more dependable and cheap to drive.

it's reliable.

Cons

it doesn't look special.

25

It's Reliable And Was A Good Price. Lasts Forever. — good reliable Honda. It's not fast, but it's fast enough. The seats are comfortable and there are good features for a car that is almost 14 years old. big trunk, seats fold down. Easy to install upgrades. Good price too.

Gets Me From Point A To B — I like the spacious interior, its not major but good enough for me. Performance is relatively good, Gas mileage is OK. Appearance, well with some tints, it looks good. Cost of ownership is good, and it IS fun to drive.

At 13, This Car Still Gets 31 Mpg - It Just Keeps Going... — Excellent reliability, great gas mileage, and few repairs. Honda continues to provide excellent vehicles at excellent prices that have durability that far exceeds its American competitors. Couple this with excellent fuel standards and sleek designs and you can understand why Honda has one of the highest rates of non-employee repeat business.
