Love my Honda
Pros: Wonderful sound system.I looked at lots of other cars and chose a 5-speed Honda Civic loaded with features. It is very comfortable, easy to see the road out of, and a joy to drive! Love it! It also looks great! What else could you want?
My first Honda but the last!
Pros: High quality . . . no breakdowns
Cons: narrow seatsBest attribute in my opinion is the low maintenance and a very reliable car. The only issue is the rear brakes of which the pads were replaced at 30 k miles. Seats are a little to narrow for comfort and I'm 5'10' and 185 lbs. Everything else works great! Does not perform like an Acura TL/BMW but that is a whole different league of automobile (including payment). I highly recommend if you want a no thrills, with decent performance, type of car.
Cons: rugIts great
Same old stabilitty from Honda
Pros: the arrangement of the front cabin to provide plenty of room and visibility
Cons: that it has drum rear brakesI just bought this vehicle, but so far, so good--responsive, tight handling, good gas mileage in mixed driving (34 mpg), comfortable to drive, and has the stable presence of a larger car, though it is really a compact. It does not handle as sporty as my old VW golf, but hopefully will be more dependable, and continue to provide better gas mileage. Acceleration is slightly sluggish around 35-45 mph, and again at about 55 mph, but it hums along fine once you've reached your intended speed.
2008 Honda Civic SI sedan
Cons: Overall qualityAfter 2 years/42000 miles I can say that Honda quality is not as it used to be.Cheap looking plastics/2 broken visors/odd pull from side to side when shifting is not Honda quality.But for the money it still beats all the competition.Performance/gas mileage/handling are all still great.Still fun to drive.
Rough Riding Accord
Cons: ComfortOveral the cars quality is good.The car has a bad blind spot , must really adjust mirrors to compensate for the view. I've tried different tires but the car still has a rough ride .
