For £2000, it's probably the best little car I've ever bought.
Very economical for its performance. 300 miles+ from a tank full @ £23. Parts aren't too cheap and neither is the insurance for this model.
On the road
Nice seating position, clear visibility and all driving controls are smooth and balanced.
For a 1.5 it's very nippy. More than capable of cruising the autobahns in 3 figures.
Living with it
My heated rear window bulb blew...
Front end is starting to look a little dated, but in my opinion, it still looks very sporty and has a nice side profile. Good for a 10 year old car.
Suspension isn't too harsh and seating is comfortable.
Security and Service
It has an aftermarket immobiliser fitted as standard... Obviously Honda hadn't considered this when the car was in production. The immobilisers were fitted by the dealerships and seem to vary in make. Some of which are now out of business.
I've only needed to buy a bulb so far...
Problems and Ownership
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
