Buying Guide

Good

Free-revving, refined engines

Bad

Honda maintenance is expensive, particularly VTEC. 

Aircon may play up. Best serviced and recharged with CFC-free 134A refrigerant by an aircon specialist who knows what he's doing. 

Not much room in the back seat. 

Paint may flake, particularly silver.

Watch

Rusty or damaged exhausts and blown cats. Look for mismatched paint and check if due to flaking or accident damage. 

Check for kerbed alloys, uneven tyre wear, suspension damage. 

If 4 wheel steer, make sure the system is tracking properly by looking for even tyre wear.
