    Doesn't Go Wrong — Very reliable, needs no special maintenance, just wish it went faster (only a 1.4L). 38MPG Loads of room inside for 4 big adults, 5 smaller ones at a push Bit boring to drive, and expensive to buy, but a good resale value.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: boring

    It's A Honda... Need I Say More? — Pretty crappy acceleration in my mind, but I love the way it looks (for an 03). Awesome mileage, and low maintenance. One thing we can't figure out is some mysterious clunk in the back end when going aroung traffic circles (3 mechanics didn't know either). A good, reliable car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Low gas mileage.

    Cons: Small... but it's a car.

    This Car Is A Piece Of Crap. — Transmission failed at 30k miles. Car was driven respectfully and with city and highway miles. This car is a piece of crap. I also think the interior design is awful. All knobs on right (heat temp, fan, etc.) are round and approximately the same size. All knobs on left are square (side windows, sun roof). You HAVE to take your eyes off the road for an uncomfortable amount of time in order to make any adjustments. In my Toyota before this car, every button was different--all you had to to was feel for it, and you could make all and any adjustments without taking your eyes off the road. I will never buy another Honda again. I canNOT understand why this car has a good reputation with an unconscionable transmission problem for YEARS in ALL MAKES of Honda.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: none

    Cons: transmission, interior design

    Good Car For People Who Just Need A Car To Get From Point A To Point B. — Obviously this car isnt extremely performant, the acceleration and braking are mediocre at best, however i was pleasantly surprised by the handling on this car. I find that's the one reason that makes this fun to drive. The one thing I can't complain about for this car is its reliabiity. I haven't had to perform any repairs on this car other than regular upkeep. It does look like just any old car, it definitely doesn't stand out since there are thousands of them on the road. But all in all, its an inexpensive car that doesn't have very many hidden costs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very reliable

    Cons: Not performant.
