It's a Honda.

Cons

Nothing sucks about it.

It's Amazing. — Averages about 30 mpg city driving and about 40 highway. Fun and quick little car to drive. Built like a tank. There's never been a time where it has stranded me or not started or anything. No problems at all. Through all the heat and cold, always starts, runs, drives. Look forward to driving my baby into the ground. :) It's a Honda, what else would you expect ? ;)

Pros

excellent suspension geometry, fuel mileage, cheap to maintain

Cons

The engine isn't a B16B, B18C5 or K20A.  Not yet...

210 Km/h Is Great For A 127 Hp 1.6l Sohc — I've owned my car for three years, and am looking to buy another one to modify. Love this car for daily driving and very easy to get around the city. Very solid in the winter and with my winter Michelins no ski hill poses a threat. Don't buy a SiR or Type R, I want them all.
