"I got this car not to long ago for about 3000 bucks, so far all I have needed work done was a gasket that was leaking, but other than that all the money has gone into performance. The car has never let me down and is alot of fun to drive. The back seats are next to useless, but still comfy if the front seats are pushed forward. Good trunk space for a 2 door, and it is cheaper insurance than my Civic Sedan. All in all its my favorite Honda ever made, and I would suggest getting one."

Pros: "One fun car to drive-POWER and HANDLING!"

Cons: "Small rear seats."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Wonderfully competent driver. Great gas millage, around 29/highway, 21 combined. Brakes and tires seem to last a lot longer than other sports coupes, I put new brakes at 80K and still have 60% remaining and replaced tires at 45K and just bought new ones at 125K!The tread was still within good range, but, as I live in Las Vegas where the heat is hard on them, the side walls were starting to crack and crumble. If I lived in a milder climate (like Seattle) I'm sure the tires would still have been OK, not needing replacement for another 20K! I replaced all belts at 117K. Examining them showed they could have lasted longer, but MFG's recommendation was replace at 80K. Only caveat is rear seats are fit only for children or SMALL adults. Too bad Honda stopped producing them, (replaced with S2000) as I, along with many more folks, would definitely purchase another. Body has no " door dings""
