What to Expect

Reinvented Honda’s reputation for tough fours. Fast, handles competently, almost maintenance free and lasts well. Look for smoke on the overrun as a sign of exhaust valves dying, usually around 55k but sometimes at 40k. Everything starts to wear out come 65k but some made it to 75k. Chassis bearings, disc brakes and electrics become temperamental after 40k. Some lovely examples available plus high mileage rats. Try to avoid anything over 40k.
