"I bought a 2000 ES model in 2001 with less than 10,000 miles on it. I *love* the way this car looks, handles (turning could be sharper) the interior is comfortable and it gets up and moves great. That is WHEN it runs. She did great till we hit 90,000 miles and those were pretty easy miles. Regular maintance kept it running just fine till then. Since then, I have dumped over $4000 into this car and it STILL does not run. According to several mechanics now the computers in these cars are very difficult to read, and very unreliable. Once they go, good luck replacing it! I had major transmission problems, not once but twice and that was before the computer went out. We had tried two different ones so far and this thing is still sitting in the shop, 9 months later. According to several sources, these cars do great until they hit the 100,000 mile or so mark and then they fall appart. My gas mileage dropped signifigantly, the paint started peeling off, the trunk won't shut, the electric seat won't move forward or back, the cup holder covers snapped off. All of this literally within a less than 10,000 mile span! I am wishing now I had of dropped the money into a Civic that would still be kicking! I loved this car, and if you are only looking to drive a lower miles car thats a kick in the pants, then go for it! Just make sure you off load it before it starts falling appart. You will be left holding a junker worth nothing, and that's if your lucky!"
