Solid and reliable
All age-related stuff:
I have replaced:
-Tune up parts: wires, plugs, cap and rotor
The A/C doesn't turn on, so either it's out of freon or the compressor's gone. Haven't bothered to fix it.
I bought this car in early '06 as a second car. It's a five-speed EX-R, which is pretty hard to find. Quite fast and solid for a ten-year-old car. No rust and the interior is mint! I often get asked what year it is, since it still looks new.
In the year I have owned this car, I have put about $1500 in new parts in it, but I expected this simply because the car is old and has quite a few miles on it. I'm confident that there is quite a bit of life left in it, because it still runs very well, starts up without a fuss every day, and has never left me stranded.
I would highly recommend this car as a used car purchase, but make sure to have it thoroughly inspected by a trusted mechanic before buying one. I encountered one before I bought mine that had serious problems even though the dealer claimed it was fine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
