bought one because:

I bought a 2012 SI, so a performance model. It is a sedan and has ample room for anything I'd like to fit in it, handles fantastic, and has the power to keep you interested in it (mainly for us car guys.). A TON of trunk space, great back seats, and overall a fantastic purchase.

Pros

Excellent handling....great on gas....sharp looking (everyone looks as I drive by), compliments of how beautiful my car is. Stereo system is top of line, sun roof is an added delight, and I love the Bluetooth capability.

Cons

Not a lot of grocery room.

Classy Car — I love the car, it handles real well. The gas mileage is a winner, and shifting the car is so much fun, she is fun to drive! It's sharp and eye catcher, just sad I must sell due to unforseeable circumstances.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very efficient (39-40mpg on hwy). Stylish futuristic interior. Sharp looking outside.

Cons

ROAD NOISE. Cloth seats don't have the best fabric.

Great Car - Some Drawbacks — I like my car. it's efficient, simple, and good looking. The imid display, steering wheel controls are super nice. I like the built-in phone and the adjustability of the steering wheel and seats. I'm not happy with the road noise or the comfort of the seats for long trips. Its a great car for what it is though. Much cheaper than similarly appointed Toyota Prius.

Pros

Looks good, handles well. A bit high priced for what the car is overall, but I Honda has earned a reputation for long lasting cars. So I bought the car with this in mind.

Cons

Steering wheel controls are a bit cheap, the paint has started to wear off from repeated touching - perhaps use a longer lasting material for these?

Decent Looking, Economical, Compact Family Car. — I love the fuel economy of this car. I also includes bluetooth technology, hands free mobile connectivity. The "eco" function does help improve fuel economy, at the expense of engine power but is a great feature for highway driving. I'm hoping the get many more years of reliability and great fuel economy from this car.

A Great Bundle Of Stylishness, Efficiency, And Technology — I loved everything above: the alloy wheels, leather seats, Bluetooth, and Gas consumption. It's pretty stylish and comfortable. Fun to drive and a nice car to own. Honda cars are expensive brand-new, but they last a long time and just keep on going and going. I had a 1996 Honda Accord, and currently have an 2003 Acura MDX and 2010 Honda Odyssey. They are great cars. Overall, it gets 5 stars!

Great Second Car. — This car met all of our expectations for a second car. It is comfortable and roomy. We drove the car on a few long trips and we're very satisfied with the performance. We liked the economy, looks, performance and reliability.

Economy Size Car — Like the reliability, features such as bluetooth, xm radio, easy accessibility, cruise control, digital speedometer, leather seats, sun roof, alloy wheels, gas mileage, maintenance, exterior color black, and interior color light grey. Dislike the annoying seat belt noise but it's good for safe measure.
