Summary:

Reliable overall

Faults:

- Transmission boot broken at 60000km approx. Changed at Honda's cost.

- Not a single bulb since then.

General Comments:

Dislikes:

- Very noticeable turbo-lag.

- Some noises in the interior (glove box, speakers and right seat). Not so loud, but annoying.

- Handling is like you are driving a truck. It feels nose heavy and disappointing on mountain roads.

- Not the prettiest rear out there.

Likes:

- Handle on highways is OK, very stable and comfortable.

- Has good performance for the 140HP.

- Great fuel economy (6.8 liters/100 km, cruising at about 140 km/h).

- RELIABLE. Only a transmission boot broken in 195000km, and I suspect that wasn't a car fault exactly.

Summary:

Faults:

Nothing at all, so far.

General Comments:

I like it very much, it's fast, handles well and looks good.

It's a bit narrow in the back, so it's difficult to get two children's seats in and an adult in the middle.
