Honda Reliability — As typical, Honda made a good car with this model year. As an underpowered four-banger, this car is quite uncomfortable for long trips, like most Honda models. The foam used in the seats are just too stiff, making your body sore in a matter of hours.

Pros: Fuel economy, practicality

Cons: Weak power, uncomfortable for long trips.

Overall:

One Of The Sweetest Cars Ever. — It handles really well and turns into a beast at 3800rpm. The seats are comfortable and there's a lot of leg room for the driver and front passenger. The car is very aero dynamic and it hugs corners like no other. The low-cut dash also gives the driver a great view.

Pros: Speed, Handling, Engine Purr.

Cons: It's not a vTec and it has developed a light clinking at 2500rpm.

Great Family Car, With A Kick. — The 170hp V6 gets it moving quickly, but dont expect to race. Handling could be better, but does have double wishbone front suspension, as opposed to McPhearson Struts. Its a Honda ,so it will last.

Pros: Legroom, V6, ABS, 4 wheel disk brakes, could easily make it to 200,000 mi.

Cons: Seats (Leather) stiff and quite uncomfortable, Some issues have sprung up in the electrical system.

Not Bad First Car. — Its seen better days, but it still runs fine. I'll keep it until I can get enough money for a better car.

Pros: Good leg room, storage space, not bad acceleration.

Cons: It's an automatic, need I say more?

Great Car If You're Looking For A Combo Or Room And Mileage — Plenty of room, plenty of accessories, good smooth running car, no extra noise from the transmission or anything like that. Usually get about 35 mpg in town. No signs of "slowing down".

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Great Car With Awesome Performance Potential (with Some Patience And $$$) — All i have done too it is a super short ram, front sway bar,and an ultimate tuning performance (UTP) chip. With these three mods (roughly $120s worth) the car has opened up just slightly in low range, but does great in mid range, not so good in high range power. The car stock performancewise is worthless as its a f22b2 2.2 litre single cam non v-tech (stock rating @ 8.8:1 compression ratio//great for boost) with a 4 speed auto. Love the body lines. The car is pretty fun to drive for most part specially with the tower bar up front helps dramatically with cornering. Car had been in 2 accidents and still runs and drives great jus needs alignment and a driver door and we are back in business. not the fastest but fast enuff for now! (20-23mpg, it was purchased for $4400, other than oil changes theres not really any maintenance to be done )

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: super fun, easy to tune, low maintenance, decent mpg

Cons: if you are strictly a v-tech fan this car is not for you, also being it only has 8.8:1 cr it has little to no low end power
