I bought a new 2000 Lxi after owning Hondas for 23 years. I took the plunge after renting a Dodge Stratus, knowing it had a Mitsubishi engine. The car has been good, comfy & dependable transportation until this winter (2010). The thing stopped running at a busy intersection. A local shop replaced the computer & the distributor assembly, which houses the coil. It's back in black, but there are some nit-picky things I don't like: 1) visor clips break every couple of years at nearly $15 each, 2) the 6-CD changer went out after 5 yrs & is quite expensive to replace, 3) all the rubber grease boots on the struts wore out just out of warranty, 4) replacing the back 3 spark plugs costs a couple of $hundred in addition to the $20 for the plugs, 5) the trunk seal fell apart after dragging several heavy things across it. I now have > 132,000 miles on it.
