ok, honda claims their cars are reliable, fun to drive, performs well. Let me just tell them these are just complete scam and bull#$%, telling me the car is reliable is irrelavant because i changed the car's axle after 2 years; had to pay 400 bucks. 3 of my door switches are gone, passenger window will not roll up on master switch side. my A/C also stopped working. had to replace battery when dealer said its bad(costs $120). thank you honda.
now comes to fun to drive part, honda says their cars are fun to drive, which is like putting MSG in your soup to trick your toungue thinking its good. And then the car rides so damn hard n rough, sways and rattles on rough roads. Worse is when you hit a pot hole you will get a heavy impact on your neck and head. it just hits u.
the only thing you feel is their bad-design-stiff shocks which are not intended for automobile uses, their springs are really garbage and stiff, will not absorb bumps and impacts, shocks are made just ok to match their springs, but still dont absorb the impact, instead you will feel the bump n force hitting your head and neck area. also normally it bounces twice or more when hitting an uneven pavement. my dads toyota only bouce once at the street we normally turn onto.
they only made the back suspensions extra stiff so u think its fun to drive. trust me its not and please NEVER EVER install after market shocks, you will get brain damage or neck pain. if you have to replace the shocks, replace the springs also. only get expensive brand like Koni, BillStein shocks, or high end KYB. you will regret if you get regular after market shocks like Monroe, tokico, regular KYB. i wasted 2k on getting the right shocks for my 2004 civic.
also beware their windshield are ez to crack by rocks and pebbles. transmission will jerk, shocks are not as long lived as toyota or nissan. what a waste of my money and time. TEST DRIVE other cars before buying this one. I think Corolla, Focus, Sentra, or Optima are way better in terms of driverbility, comfort, and reliability.
