The replacement for the Echo: it wasn't the most exciting car I looked at, but it was certainly the cleanest, with a fair price. 168,920 miles when I signed the papers, and a lifelong Dallas car. It drives nice and tight, and although I've never cared for Hondas, actually driving this makes me understand how these cars helped create the loyalty to the brand which they did. Everything feels light, tight, and responsive, yet refined enough to reveal smart engineering. It's that sprinkle of old Honda magic I've heard about. It has manual steering, which will be a neat little bonus, and only one option: AC.
