    Work In Progress — The car, just stock, is great... but mind you I have changed a lot on it, and still am going to change a lot more. But definitely reliable, handles great, comfortable space, sleek design..

    Great Car-only Flaw Is Squirrely Handling On Wet Road Above 60 Mph. — Very reliable, low maintenance, adequate acceleration (5-speed manual transmission). Reserve energy good for only about five miles of mountain climbing, but gasoline engine adequate to carry car over mountain after battery reserve exhausted (70 mph up 4% grade with light load).

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Pros: Great fuel economy (50+hwy, 45 city), nimble handling around town.

    Gas Sipper That's Low On Spunk. — This car doesn't generate much emotion. It gets very good gas mileage. Sometimes on trips it will tick past 40mpg. Around town it's usually 30+. However, this car has very little get up and go. It is sometimes frustrating trying to merge onto limited access freeways or while passing.

    Pros: Gas Mileage, Solid Construction

    Cons: Slow

    Good Value — This vehicle runs good. Is very fuel efficient, and very basic. It is a good value for what you pay for it, but I will get a few more creature comforts next vehicle. I HAVE NEVER SAT IN A COMFORTABLE HONDA SEAT INCLUDING THIS ONE.

    Honda Reliability — I love this car. In fact I've had Honda Civics since I started driving. They are steadfast reliable and incredibly easy to maintain. I've decided to move onto something more suited for my off-road lifestyle, but this car can certainly hold it own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is a wonderful car; especially for people that have a commute. The trunk is also a good size. I can fit a folded stroller and all the groceries in the trunk with room to spare.

    Cons: Not the best choice for going 'outdoors'

    Good Commuter Car. — It is a great, reliable car. Gets excellent gas mileage (have had as high as 42 mpg). It handles well, but is not very exciting to drive. It does get crowded inside and not great for tall people. Insurance is reasonable too. Every time I get bored with it and think of selling it, I remember what a good car it is and change my mind!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent gas mileage and very reliable.

    Cons: Not much room inside. Lots of road noise. Not comfortable for long distances if you have a carload of people.
