Best $3,000 I ever spent on a used car
Fall of 1996, 151000 miles, replaced the rear control arms and Timing Belt.
Replaced passenger side front window motor in early 1997.
Clutch went out 15 minutes before midnight New Years eve 1997.
Rust beginning to appear around rear wheel wells.
Fuel injection light comes on and stays on after engine runs for 10 to 20 minutes. Has been checked, but mechanic did not feel it was serious.
Replaced struts all the way around at 193,000 miles in September of 2002.
Have had front brake rotors turned twice since buying the car.
The air conditioning still blows cold.
Still gets great mileage on the highway. It's not uncommon to get 35 MPG plus on trips.
Huge trunk for such a small car.
The 2.0 Fuel Injected engine coupled with the 5 speed manual transmission makes for a fun car to drive.
The car is paid for and I just can't bring my self to sell it. Just doesn't make sense to pick up a car payment when there is nothing wrong with the Honda except a few miles and some paint flaking off the bumper. I'm actually looking forward to watching the odometer roll over 200,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
