Pros: Fast car, excellent quality, nice layout for driver
Cons: Expensive, excessive road noise.
I was seriously thinking of buying this car so I rented one for a weekend. It's very roomy and well laid out to drive. The engine is very powerful but it needed premium gas to get the best performance. I guess you just have to keep paying to be fast on the road. By the end of the weekend, I decided I didn't want a sports sedan. I'm not driving to race anyone, I just want to go from Point A to B.
The real turn off about this car is the road noise! On the highway, I could barely talk on my hands free cell phone. I needed to take the cell phone off hands free and talk into it by holding it to my ear (which is very unsafe while driving). Honda, go test drive a Camry or any Buick, you'll see how a car of this class should sound like!
The Honda I priced was $34,000 while the Camry was only $31,000. Better luck next year Honda.
Honda Races. You Pay.
PS. Fuel economy was reported as decent for this car but after reading this story on the internet, I don't trust Honda.
