this car is a lot of fun to drive. i bought the 5 speed. i have 17,500+ miles. cross country interstate @75mph yields 37-38 mpg. around my small town, driving all short trips, i get around 35. driving a very comfortable 60-65mph on two lane roads i get 41-42 mpg. the handling is precise and sporty. my only complaints are: i've got a dreaded dashboard rattle. just above the center a/c ducts something is loose. it occasionally rattles at the base of the windshield, too. i'm guessing it may be a loose wiring harness. it started about 2 months after leaving the dealer. my only other complaint is the gearing. if honda had installed a six speed tranny, the car would be considerably better. it needs a sixth gear. the ratios could be tightened around 2nd and 3rd, and a tall sixth would increase the mileage. at 75mph i'm turning 3550 (+-) rpm. a sixth gear would make it a great car.
Best compact car ever
Having problems with wouldn't start 2 weeks ago when weather turned cold. Though it was weather related so I took it to honda dealership maintenance where I bought the car (battery is under 3 year warranty). Battery check out okay...was told I needed to drive the car more or further distances (I work for an airline and ttravel on a weekly basis). My car usually sits for no more than 3 days at a time.....I've never had this problem with other cars before..... I would like to know where to find a battery that doesn't start draining so quickly. VERY dissatified with this battery...may have to sell car .
2008 Sport with automatic transmission. It's small, but roomy and gets great mileage. I bought it when gas was $4.00 per gallon, and have been pleased with the vehicle. The only con with this vehicle is the small radio antenna. Had to buy a longer antenna to get local stations.
