1987 Honda Aerodeck EXi 2.0i A20A4
Great, cool looking classic Honda
Thermostat - faulty when bought, otherwise just service items. I replaced it with a genuine Honda item.
Looks great, drives great, what's not to like.
I bought my 'deck on whim as I liked the look of it; I have a thing about 3 door estates or shooting-brakes as we call them in the UK, and have just fallen in love with it. The car isn't perfect, but the handling is good, performance acceptable, and the auto box does what it should. To me it's everything you'd expect from a 1980's Honda: comfortable, reliable and a good all rounder. Plus it has pop-up headlights and a gull-wing boot.
Nothing major has gone wrong with it during my ownership, and I have just done general servicing on it. It's now approaching 130k miles so I'll be giving it a major service to make sure it lasts me a good while longer.
Yes I am using a 30 year old Honda daily, and no it is not an issue, as this is what they were built for.
I'm averaging 30-35 MPG (UK) so it's not bad on fuel either, and did I mention it has pop-up headlights.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
