"Fantastic Mileage! Stylish look and fun technology!"4.0 starson by ebynutt
Pros: Mileage (FANTASTIC), Auto Stop, Sport mode = awesome, apparently great safety ratings, way better looking than prius, interior fit and finish, information displays, very comfortable and noticeable
Cons: Drive mode and Sport mode are very different in performance; Drive mode has a lack of response in the city. The exterior rubber piece on the roof will come off every time I get a car wash, very annoying.
Summary: I bought the car because it was a low cost Honda hybrid plus I wanted something different than a civic. Honda gave me a great deal on the EX w/ Navigation. I bought it in Las Vegas and drove to Denver for around $35 in gas. I then drove from Denver to NYC for around $100. Now that gas is getting closer to the $5/gallon mark, I laugh at all my friends with their 12 mile/gallon trucks. Honda only recommends changing the oil every 10K miles. The sport mode worked great in the rocky mountains, no problem shifting up hills; obviously not a sports car though. The navigation = meh, google maps knows better 9 out of 10 times. I love the Bluetooth and the usb hookup; i just hookup my phone to the usb and all the music shows up on the the touch screen, very user friendly. You can voice command the car to turn off and on heat/AC (Also known as super lazy mode). If you're all about traveling or commuting for a low price, this car is perfect.
Thanks for your submission!
