Amazing for the price
Wheel cover cracked. So far, nothing else has gone wrong.
So far, no problems. I bought this Value Package edition for a great price in 2007 (it had A/C, PW/PL, and CD player with 2 front speakers). I saved $2000 over the SE edition and found that the VP: had no rear speakers, had less sound insulation, had narrower tires, and had no rear sway bar. update 6/2010 - there has been much more body roll than when new. Looking to add rear stabilizer.
I added rear speakers and now the sound is great. Even without the wider tires and sway bar, it handles well, but I do not drive like a maniac. The road noise sometimes can be a little too much.
Gas economy is great. 33 mpg highway and 22-23 city. My next car will be another Honda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
