Fun And Reliable But Not For A Performance Snob — 4-cylinder engine leaves some performance to be desired but the car is sturdy and reliable. the sedan is small and anyone over 6 feet tall will feel very cramped and find it difficult to enter the car... the exterior styling is great however the interior feels a bit cheap with plastic dash and door trim.. overall the car feels more akin to a go-cart than a sedan but it will get the job done.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliable efficient fun

Cons: small dated underpowered

Honda — I kick the crap out of this car from 150k to 300k in a year and a halfs time. I drove this car LOWERED through markham snow in the middle of nowhere and it just plowed right throught it!. In the summer is was a lot of fun to drive. Tight corners, good accelleration, killer reliability, tons of parts and toys available.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: get hit by anything bigger than a potato and you're done

Honda Lx — Because of a smaller size and natural handling most hondas are built with, handling was already good to start with, but after adding brembo pads and rotors, kyb agx's, and a front stabilizer bar, its handling was amazing. 1.6L engine was pretty small, only 106 hp standard, but with its light weight and five speed transmission it made up in quickness what it lacked in speed. Appearance was altered, so i cant speak of the base model,but i had added a few decals that I got with the upgrades, 18" rims, as well as silver tint and a custom muffler tip. Overall quality was good, seats are kind of uncomfortable, interior design was smart and made use of the small amount of space. Fairly cheap to own, maintain, and keep the gas tank filled, with a 10 gallon tank and 30mpg, at the worst of the gas crisis i was sill only paying $30 every time i filled up, much better than most domestics, which i heard were usually anywhere from 50-70 to fill every time. Fun Factor.....10+/10...great car, easy and cheap to add performance upgrades

Pros: own one

Cons: winter...

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mileage

Cons: It gets broken into too much.

Reliable Car — When you fix a honda, the parts are not cheap. The car performs well for the smal 1.6 L engine that is in it. As far as the body goes, it looks good, but it is really thin. Thump the car, and you have yourself a dent. The insurance is fairly cheap, has a really good resale value, and this car is just fun to have around, of course with the great gas milage, you can drive all you want!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: MPG, Looks, Reliable

Cons: expensive to fix,!!!

The car was a super great deal and that was why it sold before I could make up my mind. It was one of those “to good to be true “ deals. That is why I hesitated. Read More
