- Sharp styling, good fuel economy, fun to drive
- More rattles and noises than you would ever expect.
Some days I love this car and some days it drives me nuts with all the noise it makes. For the first 5 thousand miles there were no noises and rattles. After that I started to notice annoying rattles towards the back of the car, it sounds like the back window is rattling. I took it to the dealer they said they heard the noise, but they cannot really do much about it. What a disappointment with a brand new car. Another thing is how uncomfortable the drivers seat is, I feel like after long road trips I need to go see a chiropractor. I decided to get the cloth seats, but really wish I would have went for the leather I think they would be more comfortable. I do love the looks of this car overall, but am disappointed with the overall quality and unknown rattles. I also looked at the altima coupe and wonder if it would have been better in the long run....read morehide

- Great fuel economy, great value, nicer-looking redesign, Honda quality
- Ride could be a little firmer
I bought this car new in Sept. 2007. The car now has 8,000 miles. I just put over 360 miles on the car, and, keeping the speed to no more than 60 m.p.h., I got nearly 37 miles per gallon (fyi, the maximum posted speed was 65 m.p.h.).
Nice features for the EX model. The stereo sounds great, and the MP3 jack in the center console is a good idea. There is a lot of room, and the front seats are comfortable and look good. The trunk is also large for a coupe, and the back seat folds forward for even more room.
The engine, for a 4-cylinder, can be responsive, when necessary. And the 5-speed manual transmission is a joy to shift.
I like the new design, although it shares several styling similarities with other cars....read morehide

- Runs smooth, very quiet, good pick-up for a 4 cyl, looks great!
- gas mileage, gas door release, stereo controls not intuitive
Let's start out by saying I had a VERY hard time trying to get this car. It took six months to find but you know what they say....Good things come to those who wait and Honda delivered!
I LOVE my car! I've had it for about a month now and I can honestly say I am very pleased with it. I have a 5 speed, 4 cylinder, 2.4 Liter and for what it is, it has pretty good acceleration. There is a trade-off and that's gas mileage. Right now I'm averaging about 25MPG. Not bad for a decent sized engine. I had an Acura RSX before, base model, and that had a 2.0 liter engine. I got about 28 - 30MPG with that car.
And I gotta tell ya, the ride on that car, like butter. It's very smooth. As far as the car's looks everyone, even strangers, come up to me and say how attractive it is.
The one thing that I don't like is the gas door release. It's a little different from other cars I've had and sometimes, if you don't do it just right, the door doesn't open. Other than that, I'm very happy....read morehide
