We bought this car July 11, 2010 and the dealer knocked 2500.00 off the MSRP. I also own a 95 Toyota V6 4x4 pickup(15 mpg), 2000 Durango 4x4(14 mpg) & 04 Neon(25 mpg). The wife blasted through 300.00 in gas in one month(June) driving the Durango. So we need'd something with more mpg.
It handles great, A/C takes a little time to cool, power windows(4), very good acceleration, has only 2 speakers but plenty loud. You get a $4,000.00 federal tax credit(ends Dec 31, 2010), $3000.00 from L. A. county, 2.20 a gallon(CNGPrices.com), No more smog check, ride in the HOV lane by yourself(451.00 ticket), if you get the home refueling station it will cost you about .80 a gallon & the gas company switches you to a flat rate system saving you around 40% on your home gas bill.
A coworker of mine commutes 75 miles one way & says he's getting 42 mpg highway. So if you commute I would recommend this car for you....read morehide

- Safety rating and fuel economy
- Ground clearance, can't see where the front or rear ends are for parking/backing

The car did very well, on a mountainous road trip we took, right after buying it. Coasts extremely well. Love the tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Comfort was just good, but we didn't buy a "luxury" car-so can't expect miracles. We really like the car as a whole. For a little car it performs very nicely, super steering, and no roll on cornering. I get carsick very easy, this car did not do that to me, it stayed flat on the endless hours of twisting turns we made. Road noise was very minimal too. :) We recommend this car....read morehide

- Cheap fuel, clean, reliable
- small trunk, no rear speakers or sunroof
Purchased As Used
Great commuter vehicle (32mpg city), safe, with classic Honda reliability. Will go over 200 miles on a tank in the city, 250 highway. Four years on the road so far with no complaints. Very small trunk space because of space taken up by fuel tank. Phill home fueling compressor is overpriced, so it takes years (5+) to break even, depending on yearly miles driven.
While it's unlikely US will build infrastructure to fuel CNG vehicles easily nationwide, car is a good commuter choice for those states, mostly on the west coast, where fuel stations are easier to find. I'm on the east coast and must rely on fueling at home.
Some suggested improvements: rear speakers, a sunroof, and bifuel capability -- though this last choice would probably require a larger vehicle body (how about a bifuel Odyssey or Pilot?)....read morehide

- Great cost per mile
- Needs a little me power

This is a great alternative to hybrids (I also have a new PRIUS). I pay $2.15 a gallon equivalent for fuel and filling up takes less time than with my PRIUS
It is built on the LX body. You get all the power stuff, good stereo and cd/mp3, nice interior. If you need NAV buy one of those $100.00 GPS at an electronics discount store.
You do not have to be a "greenie" to appreciate the wonderful things about this car.
And don't forget it is a HONDA....read morehide

After looking for a while and driving several cars to be my commuter car for work, I stumble into this CNG stuff. After doing some research and driving the car I could not figure out why the roads are not full of these cars. It turns out that Honda only makes a limited number and the great majority are purchased in bulk by government entities, only a few ones are privately owned.
The limited number of CNG stations is not an issue for me, I work in LA and pass by a couple of ones in the way to work, and beside, they keep adding new ones.
If you take into consideration the cost per mile, the fact that is uses CNG from the USA and not foreign oil, and then you add to that that you can use the car pool lanes!!
It is absolutely a No-brainer; It is the best option for a commuter car.
The only drawback is that the only trim available is the strip down version.
If Honda were to offer and Acura running on CNG it would be a best seller...read morehide
