    Dependable And Roomy — This is actually the first NEW car I've ever purchased, and it is by far my favorite... maybe for that reason. Being a rather large (read fat) man, I have few choices for vehicles to fit into. This fits with room to spare. Smooth and powerful to drive, yet doesn't suck down the gas as quickly as expected. With gas prices as they are, maybe the hybrid version would have been a better value, if it had been available in '05. I hear that the '06 version is even better, but I'll stick with this one.

    Pros: Roomy
    Powerful
    Smooth

    Cons: None

    Gets The Job Done — This is a FWD with the Eco-Tech 4 Cylinder Engine. While it won't burn up the road, the engine has adequate power for everyday driving. Gas mileage is good for a vehicle its size at 23mpg in town and 28mpg on the highway. Interior is spacious, and the fold down rear seats are nice. Interior trim feels cheap and has occasional rattle issues. Stock Bridgestone tires were terrible in the rain, hydroplaned all the time. Have since replaced with Toyo Eclipse tires which are a HUGE improvement. The electronic power steering is nice in parking lots, but is too sensitive at speed. Overall its been a reliable and comfortable vehicle, it doesn't excel at anything but doesn't really suck at anything either.

    Pros: Inexpensive, Reliable Drivetrain, Adequate Power, Guages look cool

    Cons: Interior feels cheap, rattles. Electronic power steering too sensitive at speed.

    * * Great Mpg, Great In Snow, Who Needs 4 Wheel Drive ! * * — This car handles well in the snow . . . don't let them sell you all wheel drive, you don't need it ! We drove it from Maine to Florida & back with 30 MPG ! The only thing they could do better would be to power it with a diesel engine!

    Good Daily Driver — Faster and more powerful then most people would think. Thanks to the Honda J35A3 v6 for that(250hp, 242ft-lbs torque). Very reliable. Gets pretty good gas milage for type of car it is, about 20 mpg around town if u baby it. 28 mpg on the highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gives a pretty good ride for a cheap family car.

    Cons: The body lean while turning.
