This car has the original engine in it with 240K miles on it and does not use any oil, it starts every time runs out beautifully and the transmission works perfectly. However basicly every other component on this car has failed and since they only made the SE-i in 1985 and in another generation in 1989 it extremely difficult and expensive to get parts for it. I love this car, but can no longer justify spending any money to fix the ever growing list of problems.
Out of 18 cars I have had in the past 10 years this is the one that has been the most fun to drive, the power out of the 1.8 is amazing, the handling is great and the leather seats are very comfortable.
As I said with the other 5 Honda's I have owned this is my last Honda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
