Excellent value car
Broken cover for the radiator - fixed for around 1 EUR.
Noise and vibration from the gear lever, happens when accelerating - not solved yet, but shouldn't be too expensive.
Middle muffler is teared inside - expensive to replace, from the dealer around 1,000 EUR.
General tear and wear from a 15 year old car.
The car is very comfortable, low noise on highway speeds (120 kph). It pulls OK for the power and weight, but it is not an S2000. If you push it, it will drain the fuel tank in a blink of an eye, but then again, it is not what this car is about. If you want a high revving and exciting 4 door Honda, buy a Civic instead.
Despite the above quoted problems, for the money I purchase the car, I would recommend it. It is really a good bargain nowadays.
Had to buy one, since it is one of only a couple of cars my wife enjoys the styling of (for the money) and she has a point. It is still a good looking car.
The servicing is expensive at the dealerships, but you don't have to do it so many times, so it's OK for me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
