Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: smooth, good looking, comfortable
Advice: do some research before purchaseI love my 2002 Honda Accord. We got a good retail price. The car looks beautiful and runs great. So far at 2000 milage the MPG is about 22/30. The ride is smooth and comfortable.
Pros: Lots of storage pockets
Cons: The lever for the windshield wipers is where the gear shift usually is in a car and I'm always turning the wipers on when I want to change gears.
Advice: Get one!What a fun car to drive! It's comfortable, roomy and rides very well! Has a lot of get up and go!
Pros: Easy speed acceleration.
Cons: Factory radio sucks.
Advice: Goes through tires easily & they're expensive to replace.Can pass up cars easily. Turns very tightly.
Pros: HP and torque are improved greatly over the previous models. 6 in dash CD. sunroof. interior space. rear seat adjustments. great gas milage
Cons: clicking noise comes from the shifter in Auto models when comming to a complete stop. rear middle headreast is in way of view. tires somewhat small for vehicle size. auto shifter takes a while to get used to.
Advice: test drive and listen for the reverse lockout solenoid that clicks when you come to a stop. it can drive you crazy if little noises bother you.superb improvement on the pick-up from the 98 model which I traded in. this is an overall great car for the price. there are a few quirks but they hardly compare to the multitude of great features. Note. This car ships with two different tires, the BF goodrich Touring which are very quiet and superior to the Duelers, which are very noisy.
Pros: Visibility from the front seat
Cons: Very hard seats
Advice: For short jaunts it's ideal but not for trips.The 4 cyl, 150 HP engine is very responsive. Car is ideal in every way. Please read Mark from Texas' review. I agree with him 100% This car is a fantastic value for the price but the seats are terribly hard. The Honda folks should be ashamed but then maybe Japanese behinds are different than ours
Pros: tight, well-controlled handling
Cons: poor factory radio
Advice: drive one before you buy, the steering wheel isn't adjustableThis is an elemental roadster in its most pure sense. If you're looking for cushy accommodations and creature comforts, look elsewhere; Honda makes no apologies in its nearly perfect iteration of the classic sports car. While some may fault the S2000's lack of low-RPM torque, in actual driving it is perfectly balanced with more than enough off-the-line oomph to get you going. When the tach goes above 6000 RPM however, hang on to your hat. At this point, the VTEC kicks in and you feel a surge not unlike a turbo-charger, but this car is normally aspirated and will suffer none of the long-term reliability issues associated with a boosted engine. The engine will keep providing power until 9000 RPM, a stratospherically high piston speed that no other production car can match. With the top down and the engine screaming at Formula-One car speeds, this car provides a visceral experience that can't be found with any other car in this price range. With six forward gears to choose from, this car will appeal to those who like to shift; if you're not manual-transmission inclined, again this car isn't for you, it's not available with an automatic transmission; this would be an insult to the design intent of the car.
Pros: rear seats that adjust and recline
Cons: nothing yet
Advice: a lot of vehicle for the moneysolid as a rock
