Remains to be seen. Bought on basis of good reputation for this car.

excellent
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

I have put over 33,000 miles on it in the last 15 months, no maintenance beyond oil/filter changes & a set of new tires.
2008 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Built well and appears to be solid at 10000 miles.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Over 180K on the odometer, and I've had only one non-wear item to need repair. That being said, that one problem could have been a huge issue -- it was adefective engine block that suddenly developed a small crack that leaked coolant. Fortunately, it was 100% covered by Honda as an extended warranty item on my 7-year old car -- they literally replaced the engine block including labor.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
They have a well-deserved excellent reputation. I had one several years ago and it just kept going. Sold it with 134k with the original clutch. Replaced the water pump, a dash switch, and the horn in eleven years.

clutch should not go out in 9k miles

little things go wrong
2007 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Had an oil leak at 27,000 miles that required warranty work. It was a known problem. On returning home I found the engine grounding strap had not been reattached.
2007 2dr Coupe 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Came off the lot with many rattles and squeaks. Had to have both rear bearings replaced and had a third gear issue. Had to have transmission rebuilt to repair 3rd gear.
2006 2dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Major rear suspension problems that Honda refused to correct under Warranty. Definately my last Honda. I had to replace the rear control arms out of my own pocket
