An excellent small car with big space that just lacks a little something on long journeys
Very awkward flat spot below 2000 rpm. A brief turbo-like surge occurs thereafter. The problem is most evident on hills and in second gear, when it stifles any pulling power. Yet this is not an engine that aspires to rev. Is this a fault or do they really 'all do that'?
Rear view mirror vibrates.
A hugely practical and intelligent car for the size.
Easy and fun to drive despite the slow steering and a bouncy though not jarring ride.
Very economical in a variety of use, but it could do with a bigger petrol tank.
Despite the search for light weight, impressively solid and precise build quality.
However I am still uneasy about the service and the engine.
And why didn't Honda bring the 1.5, which is offered everywhere else, to Europe?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
