Pros

It is very reliable.

Cons

It's a tiny car.

It Is Dependable. — It is only a four cylinder so the accelaration isn't very good, and i havent dared trying to figure the top speed i think the fastest ive gone is like 110. However it is a good car i mean after all it is a honda so it will run forever. The gas mileage is ok, it probably gets somewhere around 25 m/g. The handling isnt the greatest once you hit around 85mph it starts to shake. Overall all though it is a reliable car that will get you from point a to point b without a problem.

It gets broken into too much.

Good Beater — Performance is medium across the board. Build was awesome, it's survived me thus far. Appearance, well it was a nice car to start. I still have last winters bumper damage. Cost to own has been minimal, minus body shop repairs. I usually get mid 20's for gas, unless on sunday drives where i get 30-40's. Fun to drive, not to work. But other places, yes.

Pros

I get 35+mpg with over 90hp :o)  and its not broke like your american pile

Cons

you can time the 1/4 mile with a sundial and its not meant for offroad use

It's Not A Rice Burner, Maybe A Rice Cooker? — To start its got the fine Honda engineering that Should go into all premium automobiles. It's never let me down, I've only had to do the basics that you would with any other car but without any major problems. Bought it with 88k and now I got about 110k and still rolling strong. Not quite the horsepower of todays cars but how many of todays cars get over 35mpg in traffic day in and out?
