I put this car through things that would break a Land Cruiser: dirt tracks, driving into curbs at high speed, infrequent service, hauling heavy items, long rides with 6 passengers (illegal: don't do it). The little champ took it all and has kept running strong. It even took a severe rear-ending, and before I could get it fixed, the bumper popped itself back into place! I've since given it to my mother, and she loves it.
I've always had a Honda. Before this, I had a 1983 Accord that was still running strong when I sold it at 210,000 miles. I now have a 1999 Accord V6, have it up to 122,000 miles, and find the same durability and fun to drive I've enjoyed in every Honda I've owned.
