Just brilliant! I wish I didn't have to part with it. :(
Premature wear on the front passenger seat.
A fantastic engine. It's smooth, enthusiastic and sounds awesome between 5000-7000rpm (VTEC would be nice, though).
Looks really really cool!
It's not a hard-core 4WD. Nor is it a hatchback. Nor is it a station wagon or estate. It is a truly unique car with virtually all of the usual doubts over reliability of unique cars removed.
Very well equipped for the price.
That world famous Honda Quality we all know and love.
It's just different.
Bizarre problem with seat wear. Dealer fixed and has not been a problem since.
The front suspension and rear suspension feel like they are from two different vehicles. The front suspension feels sporty and soaks bumps well, whereas the rear suspension is very stiff and the car's rear end bounces more than an enthusiastic aerobics instructor.
Try explaining one to someone who has never seen one before...
People think you spend most of your time driving with one hand if you own a 4WD.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
