Purchased As Used
First and foremost out of owning this car I learned that 6 cylinder Hondas are notoriously bad! They eat transmissions as fast as a Dodge. Hondas inline 4s are decent, but Honda is really running on its old reputation.
I bought this car from a old lady and it only had 40k on it. With in a short amount of time I started seeing problems. A valve tap was starting for no reason. Try to have it fixed but it didn't go away. For the next year it was fine. The car gets great city mileage. Oddly enough I got 25, but on the highway I couldn't get over 27. The performance isn't bad either for the coupe. 0-60 takes 7.4sec and top speed is a 130 or so. Handling was the best feature of it, and with strong breaks it was a good all around car. Though it does look "sporty" it is far from a performance car, but its versatile enough. The rear seats are cramped, but over all the interior was surprisingly good. The door moldings around the window were separating.(a common problem with these cars) Then I notice the trans would every now and again when cold would clunk into gear. So I would let it warm up before I would drive it, for a couple minutes. A close friend of mine had the same car down to the color, and she had 80k when it looked like the trans was going to completely fail. Her engine had a similar issue as well. Neither one of were to happy with the car. I didn't wait that long, I sold it after just over a year. A year of dealing with the least reliable car I have ever owned and moved to a 07 Camry XLE V6 and have been very very happy with it....read morehide
