    What does this car say about you?

    Practical. Japanese. Economical.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They're appalled at our reliability problems.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No. It went wrong on many occasions and the customer service has been very poor. Having owned Honda's for 30 years, it's gone downhill in a big way. I won't buy another.

    Toyota! No more honda for us.

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Yes: Exhaust manifold cracked Fuel pump system - solenoid actuator Front fork failed from regular use Head Lights Air Conditioning Steering Alignment needs to be re-done every 6 months. Clutch fails prematurely.

    What's most practical about your car?

    I used to think reliability was the best thing about Honda. It certainly isn't too roomy like competitors. Fuel economy is good but offset by large repair bills.
