Pros

Fun and easy to drive
Good gas milage
Easy to self-repair
Easy to modify

Cons

Poor acceleration on the highway
"Extras" generally not included
Many aftermarket parts not cheap due to high demand

25

Good Bang For Your Buck — Don't know what to say. Its a solid car for what you pay. Acceleration off the line is decent, good fuel mileage, they're easy to modify and to work on yourself. There's not alot to them as they are cheaper cars and thus don't usually include all the extras that come with higher-end cars.

Pros

100% reliable car. Fantastic value for money.

Cons

Not the most exciting car in the world (stock).

35

Solid Reliable Car — The first car I ever bought. Fantastic value for money. It really proved to be a wonderful companion for 9 years of toiling under harsh arid conditions. Solid as a rock (rear ended some other people a couple of times) and all I got was a cracked bumper while their car boots were completely crushed. Hondas are reliable reliable reliable.
