We have had zero problems with this vehicle. Most vehicles I've had in the past required one more return trips when new.
2010 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.4L I4
CVT FWD
In 4 years and 60,000 miles we have had zero problems with the car. And the interior has very little wear. It is a very well-built car.

With one exception, every Honda that myself and my family have owned has been bulletproof--follow the maintenance and you can expect years of reliable service.

In 4 years of ownership, we\'ve never had an issue with reliability. I am a cautious person, but at no time did I ever suspect that this vehicle would leave me in the lurch. I give it a full 5 stars for reliability.
