Stick with Honda, trust me!
Engine: head needed replacement at 74000 miles.
Cat converter pipe: replaced and needs replacing again.
I have owned a Ford and a Honda and this is the worst car I have owned. It has no power (four cylinder, three speed auto, my Civic '93 LX has better pickup 1.6L auto).
It looks ugly.
It idles rough and stalls every time you turn at parking lot speeds.
The interior room sucks (hatchback?) and when you turn it feels like it going to tip over (the Civic handles much better.)
I would wish this car on my worst enemy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
