- good mileage and parkability
- VERY rough ride and horrible in snow
Purchased As New
I bought this mainly as a sporty and modern looking fuel economy vehicle. It looks cool inside and out, but the ride quality is atrocious. On a smooth road you're fine (of course!) but ANY imperfection in the road and your bouncing and jarring up and down. The interior noise level is also high. The interior is also very cheap. The digital dash is cool but the rest of the interior is very cheap.
If you're thinking that this is a mini version of an Accord coupe, you are dead wrong. The Accord coupe has a very solid feel and handles bump, potholes, etc like a normal car. I've had mine since 2006 and Honda hasn't made any real changes to the car since then. I wouldn't expect them to make major changes since it was just redesigned in 06 but I just point that out so that you don't think Honda may have improved what I'm complaining about.
Take it from someone that has owned this car and driven it for years (not a week). I like Honda in general but for this segment of car, you're better off with a Corolla. I understand the Corolla isn't a coupe but at least it's quieter and softer, and has similar long term reliability and resale. I promise you that the jarring ride will annoy you to no end.
