I had a curious dream last night. I broke the turn signal wand in half, and at the same moment the driver's airbag cover came off the steering wheel. Worse yet, the dealer wouldn't honor the warranty and wanted to charge me $$$.
I hope this isn't a bad portent.
i've got a little over 4000 miles on my '19 LX , i added a few after market chassis braces to the car , does wonders for the car , it's very stable at high speeds and that's with 185 tires .
i like the car alot , but the car does seem built on the cheap in some respects . i've never seen such flimsey looking suspension pieces on a honda , was surprised . and the paint does
seem a little thin , i've got the modern metal color and it already is showing some light scratches . maybe i should have gotten the silver

I wish I knew that the battery would not do well in a Canadian winter. Died in the cold about once a week. Iíll look into upgrading the battery for next year.

Definitely upgrade to a 51R and be done with the dead battery!

Glad I did!

There isn't any "wish I knew" information that would have changed my decision to buy the car. However, generally speaking, Honda quality has gone down in the last ten years. In the pursuit of market share and God knows what else, Honda has lost its soul and forgotten who they are. I hope they find their way home and go back to being the best carmaker in the world*. Specifically, the bad seats in my '13 Fit and the bad lumbar discs in my lower back are making the car difficult to enjoy. Feels like I'm sitting with my butt in a four gallon bucket.

*This probably won't happen since Millennials and Gen Z don't car about cars. They prefer to be self-driven or Uber or skateboard to work.
