"First Honda I have ever owned."5.0 starson by addspeak
Pros: Drives effortlessly, maintenance costs are almost nothing. A battery paid under warranty, oil changes (I began full synthetic after 6,000 mile break-in), brake fluid and a set if brake pads.
Cons: Not as refined as our E Class but then, half the price. In town mileage usually around 18-20 mpg but only needs regular gas.
Summary: Round trip Los Angeles to Sacramento averaged 38 mpg @ 75 mph probably because computer deactivates some of the cylinders on steady cruise controlled driving. I was somewhat concerned after reading so many reviews about the excessive brake wear. After 40,000 miles, I now believe it has more to do with driving style than Honda's engineering but then, I'm still on the original rubber.
