Summary:

Fun, intelligent, smart and elegant

Faults:

When I got the car, the radiator was leaking badly, so I had to change it! The cost varies quite drastically, from Honda's network cost of about 1200 euro, then a main car dealer quick repairs 700 euro, to an Internet search 235 euro fitted!

The exhaust pipes were worn out. Shock absorber as well.

General Comments:

This is a good MPV. Actually it is the one that began the trend for the MPV! Smooth ride, slightly underpowered for an automatic car, so it will guzzle petrol quite easily!

Comfortable... Steering is excellent.

I bought this car in August 2006. Since then I have driven it quite a lot, and yes it is a good little car. Spacious.

I fitted the car with 205/17 V rated tyres, and it is not because I like speeding, but for a comfortable ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
