"No problems whatsoever with the engine, transmission, brakes, etc.
However, Honda has issues with some of the parts used to make the car:
Replaced the cruise control button as it failed to work. (the CC worked if you held the button down, but it wouldn't stay put!)
The driver side sun visor; had to replace it 5 times already and they are not cheap! (well actually, they are)
Driver side power window had to be repaired, cost $449!
Had to replace the driver side door lock, it left me stranded outside the car with the engine running, couldn't get into the car!
Had to replace the driver side inner-door panel as it started peeling, looked terrible.
Had to replace the shift knob, it cracked and fell apart
The plastic back of the passenger side seat fell off, and barely stays on now.
The brake handle and button on the end were losing paint, looked terrible and were replaced.
Regarding the driving experience, the handling is really incredible and fun, it brakes great even with rear drum brakes, and I get 32-33 mpg with the 5-speed manual.
However, it is very noisy especially on roads in need of resurfacing. Probably best for a young person. Oh, I very much like the climate and radio controls and digital speedometer."
