"Not many complaints on this car. Added cold-air intake which helped performance. Only problems were hard-to-reach fuel filter (couldn't change myself), consenser getting plugged and water from A/C leaking onto floor in car, and door-lock actuators that went bad. If you work on your own cars this one will take a little more time and effort than usual, especially the rear drum brakes. But better to do it yourself and save 400 bucks on dealer doing them. Mine has 112000 miles and is still a strong runner."
"This car is reliable and gives good MPG. At some point you will need to replace ignition coil but its under hondas extended warranty. CV joints also need replacement after 120,000 miles and timing belt also. But really, just this two repairs and a regular maintance and the car WILL NOT give you any problems."
