- Good build quality, peppy and refined engine, decent fuel economy, logical dashboard controls
- Uncomfortable seats and suspension too stiff
I've owned this car for about 6 months now. I knew when I bought it that the seats and suspension were a bit firmer than what I was used to but thought I could get used to it. Got the car for a very good price. I wasn't even considering buying an Accord because they were initially too pricey but when they decided to cut the price another 2K at the end of the model year, I couldn't pass on the deal. The engine has more acceleration than you might think from a 166 hp 4 cyl, I think because it is mated with a 5 speed tranny. Many of the competitors only used a 4 speed. Gas mileage is pretty good, averaging almost 28 mpg with about a 50/50 city/hwy driving. The car handles very well and the 4 wheel disc brakes work great, although new drivers might find them too touchy and sharp. But, you should get used to them after a while. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get used to the firmer seats (I sit on a pillow) and the driving position is uncomfortable. It could use more front leg room (for the driver). I have a 29" leg and I like to stretch them out when I drive but I can't get the seat to go back far enough to do that. The ultra firm suspension makes me feel more like I am driving a go-cart, compared to other mid-sized cars I have driven over the years. I feel every little crack in the road and the larger bumps and potholes can really knock your fillings loose. It's enough of an issue for me that, even though the cars has many good qualities, I don't like it enough to keep it and am seriously considering selling and buying something a little softer riding.
