Excellent handling, is particularly fun to drive around town as it feels "zippy" particularly from a stop. Honda reliability is intact, the only repair I've done since purchase besides maintenance is to replace an oil pan component. Looks great for an early 2000s car. Better gas mileage than most sports cars of around this year model, due to being a four cylinder. Large trunk for a sports car. Cons: Likely not suitable for anyone over six feet in height, as it is a short car. Very limited back seat room.

Story
Left a particularly reckless driver in the dust at a red light. The driver had been swerving in and out of my lane and endangering others on the road. I wanted to get as far from this reckless behavior as I could, and this car helped me accomplish just that.
Pros
The number one pro is joy to drive, truly handles like no other car I've driven. It also has great reliability and looks good, with good gas mileage for a near 20-year-old sports car.
Cons
Limited head room, very limited back seat room.

Pros: - Great gas mileage. I can usually go 200 miles on half a tank of gas which is about 6 gallons - The bright red color is great - I like the style of the exterior - I like the interior as well, wears very well - Has lasted a long time without major problems - Very affordable - Only 2 doors but quite comfortable amount of leg room on the inside in the two front seats - Plenty of trunk space - Maintenance costs average - Very responsive, loose steering wheel
Story
Driving to college with the car packed to the brim while on the highway.
Cons
Cons: - Some blinds spots on the sides when merging - Acceleration is not always strong, especially going uphill - Recently noticed a weird loud squeaking noise when starting the car - Braking sometimes is also bad in rain - Somewhat cramped in the back seat
