"I fell in love with this car when I bought my first new ap1 2001 model. This 06 model which I bought new has not seen enough use, but I'd never let it go. Quite simply, it's an incredible performer. I've never owned or even driven a car that is this much fun. High revving, and it will have you grinning from ear to ear.I recommend the Ap2 (2004-2009) because it looks nicer inside and out, has a more torque, and is a better overall car than the AP1. The newer, the better.
Unfortunately, I developed problems many owners don't suffer. Water leaks on my driver's side at the seal on window, and car is basically like new. Also, this car is notorious for the soft top tearing, which I am beginning to experience. I also have annoying rattles coming from the frame when top is up, and cannot figure out what is wrong. Warranty is out, I can't afford to have it diagnosed and fixed right now, so I just accept it, use my hard top more often, and let it go for now.
I don't recommend this as a daily driver, unless you can withstand the loud road noise, loud engine on highway, and cramped interior. This is a driver's car, and a pure sports car. Nothing luxurious about it. It can be as reliable as any Honda, so those who don't mind, and don't live where there are bad winters, go for it!! You won't be sorry!!"
