have been driving this monster for some time now , i feel it to be a full compact beast which u not only drives but car drives u as well, a feeling of full contact and engagement with road , little acceleration and there u go , have toped 218 km/h and still cud have gone farther ,road grip is superb, braking is phenomenal, shocks are hard , cabin space is moderate,AC is freezing and requires off some time, interior is by far the best one cockpit view was one of a kind,hydrallic steering is a bliss to use however needs a good maintenance, had no issue with ground clearence, fuel average in city is 8 to 9 , and out of city easily gives me 14 to 15 km per liter, 0 to 100 is around 9 seconds , trunk capacity is ample, exterior is till date very competitive and aggressive , seating is comfortable,
now the problems which r common include hydrallic power steering leakege and failure, autamatic door windows motor issues, catalytic converter choking , engine mount issues .
Excellent exterior style, good interior but with missing features like powered seat adjustment, just 2 airbags in this class/price, then problems like very poor bluetooth connectivity and hanging multimedia screen. Fuel economy good I must say given this is 1.8 engine. Ride is bit hard also due to low quality tyres in this price, had to change immediately. I drove this model for more than 5 years now from 42-100,000km but I would describe this at least 'DISAPPOINTING', arguably because of its infamous steering issue not owned by Honda in my case, leakage in AC coil, again had to replace on my own, very dangerous problem in cruise control which gets cancelled at nick of time very frequently, its well known battery (overcharging) issue limiting the battery life to 10-12 months only, adjuster pulley bearing sounds just after few thousand km ride. So apart from my affiliation with Honda from last 18-20 years with heavy heart I am switching to other options Toyota or Hyundai.
I have been using this car for last five years. Overall performance is good with good mileage in 1800 cc about 10km/l. However built quality is not up to the mark, while it had few manufacturing faults which were replaced under four years warranty. Driving experience is amazing. I have replaced OEM tyres with Yokohama Blue Earth series.
