Summary:

This car is a keeper, you just have to take care of it, and it will take care of you!

Faults:

Vtec solenoid seal and distributor oil seal leaked. Replaced all seals and the leak was completely gone.

After a month, I hear squeaking sounds on the driver side suspension. Replaced both left and right lower ball joints. A week after I had the front brake pads replaced, and installed a new alternator belt.

General Comments:

Always starts with one click. Very reliable on the road, not bad for a 12 year old car! Still runs smoothly and handles very well, rides like a Cadillac. Power windows are a bit slow, but works well. Fun to drive but take it easy with the gas pedal.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
