Horrible car pile of garbage

These cars are awful. They are unreliable. Mines was a nightmare worst car I ever owned. It had a bunch of leaks on the engine, and transmission leaked and kept somehow getting oil mixed in my transmission fluid. The transmissions are garbage and mines blew. Left me without a car. The transmission is paper tissue.



This is absolutely THE GREATEST CARS EVER MADE IN THE WORLD. THEY ARE BULLET-PROOF CARS made to drive for 350,000 miles or easily up to 400,000 miles since they are made to last with that incredible VTECH engine. Easy to drive, easy to park, glorious looking and fast as lightning especially with a 5 speed manual transmission.



I love this car for the short time I owned it. While driving in 5th gear went to shift down to fourth gear and it went to second gear and blew out of head. But in a car like this it should not be able to shift from 5th to second with no resistance. Took it a Honda three different times to get fixed for the same problem and they said it was not the same problem. They would not take it back even though it was a lemon. Meaning I took it back for the same exact problem three times. So be careful because the gear shifting is not good. Now that most of the Honda is made in America it does not run as good!
