Cons: Door body lines
Advice: If you get one. Make sure you dont park too close to anyone!I own the EX V6 sedan with every option. Im in the military living in Germany. I love my car and I really take care of it. It is wonderful driving to work in it every morning. Also my first car with leather. Great for kids! It just gives that sense of security. I am 26 and I find the car quiet sporty. Now for the downside i really try to take care of my car. I hand wash it about 2 or 3 times a month and wax once every other month or so. I got one little spot of bird poop on it and my paint is ruined where it was. Dont really understand it. Also the exterior of the car is a great design, but somebody put the body line along the side in the wrong spot. Within the first week i got a huge door ding that is now there forever becuase it is in the body line. Since then i gotten several more. I have had it for almost a year now and thats all thats happened. Oh, by the way i know it will go atleast 125Mph. It can hang on the Autobahn. Overall i give the car an OUTSTANDING!
Pros: size, mileage,
Cons: cupholders, power point needs to be live all the time
Advice: Read the brochure. ALL the info is in thereWell, for the disbelievers, I am sorry that you like something else. I did all the research that could be done and I am a former mechanic. This is the totally best value on the market with the totally best reliability. You folks that hate it have a reason inside that you are not telling here. The only regret that I have is not having enough money or credit to get the LX or EX. This is about my 9th Honda car and I have had about 5 Honda motorcycles too. I had a Camry once and it too was a good car, but had factory cosmetic blems. None on Honda. With Your HOnda you have lots of headroom and the seat goes wayyyyy back for leg room, with room in the back seat for my parents. Gas Mileage is a Dream! And if you want more Horsepower, go out and buy a K&N air filter, I have gained 5% or about 6-7 more horsepower with just a better air filter. If someone is unhappy with this car, they will be unhappy with any car. Yes they will find fault with anything. I love it! I had to make some concessions to luxury because I bought the VP model, but that was my choice as was yours when you bought a car. So, its not Honda's fault for anything, you make the choice.
Pros: The Ride
Advice: Buy ItThe Ride was great, The look is what I like, and the performance is what I want as I have a honda now and had no trouble
Pros: Power (V6)
Cons: Exterior Color
Advice: Research and don't pay just for the brand. Make sure the car you buy is comfortable and powerful.I loved my 2002 V6 EX coupe. I test drove many cars including Toyota Camry, Volvo S60, Nissan Maxima, Honda CR-V, BMW 325I. And I felt I got the best price and value for a powerful machine and spacious and beatiful look inside.
Cons: seats, lack of pickup,
Advice: shop around firstCar is your basic nice car. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable and have given me severe pain. The car is also not great if you're over 5'7. I think the car was designed for a smaller petite individual who doesn't mind the lack of pick-up.
Pros: Adjustable seat height
Cons: There is no arm rest storage space
Advice: You can do worse!Adequate power & comfort with features that few cars have at its price. Standard ABS, keyless entry, and sunroof are always a plus.
Cons: THE STEERING WHEEL IS TOO LOW
Advice: IF YOUR 6' OR OVER BUY A TRUCKI LIKE MY CAR BUT THERE ISN'T ENOUGH LEG ROOM
