I agree that it's forthright and true to what it is. The interior looks really good, and I like the front end treatment. I get second gen vibes in the profile. I like it. I think it would be a mistake not to bring it to the U.S. as the car has a cult following, and Honda gives up this space to its competitors. Part of why volume is down is production was disrupted at Celaya by flooding, and the disruption lasted for months. I have one friend who went elsewhere due to unavailability.
I'll confess I'm hardly objective. I've been a fan since the first one, and own a third gen. I wouldn't trade mine for the world: it's just so right.
