Absolutely Reliable. A Godsend
Muffler at 70,000 miles, Engine oil seal at 120,000 miles (Honda paid for the entire repair including towing),Coolant leak at 230,000 miles, radiator at 285,000 miles, exhaust pipe at 300,000 miles.
This car is absolutely reliable and still running today with 305,000 miles.
It has the original engine, transmission and struts. The engine only uses 1/4 of a quart of oil between changes. It passes emissions tests and still has full power. It has never had the air conditioner repaired and it blows cold. I change the oil every 3,000 miles, resurface the brakes every 50,000, change transmission fluid every 60,000, change the coolant every 60,000, new tires every 75,000 and change the timing belt and water pump every 90,000, and replace the brake rotors every 100,000.
The only thing wrong with this car is that it's not very fun to drive, but you will fall in love because you can count on it.
PS: I'm terrible with being late changing the coolant and transmission fluid. I don't blame the coolant leak and radiator replacement on Honda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
