Very poor, dismal, overrated garbage!! Never buy Honda!!
Transmission failed at 50,000 miles.
Replacement transmission failed at 76,000.
2nd replacement transmission jerks and shudders.
Windows came off tracks.
Poor quality Factory stereo, cheap junk.
CV joints broke many times.
Weak air conditioner failed many times.
MAJOR RUST BUCKET, this car has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.
Poor performance and acceleration.
Engine ran horrible and would would not idle in cold weather.
Engine would not start below 20 degrees fahrenheit, dealer refuses to cover under warranty.
Brake rotors warped many times.
Sheet metal on car is to thin, like a soda can. You can almost dent it by looking at it.
Exhaust smelled like puke, rotten eggs, hot diesel, and dog crap. So much for hondas "clean for the environment image"
Honda's are cheap, overrated pieces of Japanese garbage. I'd rather buy a Yugo than buy honda. There was nothing good about this car. it sat in the shop more than it was on the road. I will never buy a rice burner again. If want want a reliable, fuel efficient car, get something other than Honda! GM, Ford and Chrysler will save you and your wallet a lot of heartache and pain!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
