Summary:

A totally amazing car!

Faults:

The clutch currently needs replaced due to a weak pressure plate.

Air conditioning no longer works as the gas has leaked, but intend to get it repaired.

Fuel filler pipe corroded causing a leak when filling tank.

General Comments:

This car is extremely reliable and satisfying to drive.

The equipment level would put many new cars to shame and after 16 years it works as it left the factory.

The interior trim is of a very high standard and shows absolutely no signs of wear.

Previous carVauxhall Cavalier

Summary:

Another excellent Honda

Faults:

The Anti Lock braking sensor on the front of the vehicle has failed.

The front left brake hose ruptured.

General Comments:

This car is cost me £345.

It is comfortable and handles very well considering its' size.

The performance from the 2.0 litre engine is superb. I have not seen another GSI in the uk yet.

The car starts first time, every time.

It has every luxury including Cruise Control, Air Conditioning, Electric Windows, Electric Sunroof.

I could not recommend Honda more. They may be a little plain inside, but the reliability and performance are second to none. I have owned a Civic VTi before and had very good service from that. I will not hesitate to buy again especially after the awful Cavalier.
