saintlysimon's review of Honda SMX 2.0L LowDown

“”

★★★★☆

written by saintlysimon on 27/03/2008

Good Points
The lowdown comes with a factory fitted body kit, it looks special
The cost of buying a 10 year old import is low, around 3k, and with the honda build quality onside you know it will last a very long time
Roomy
Seats fold down into Double Bed
The Automatic Box is very smooth
The performance is good, very good

Bad Points
The MPG is a little on the tight side, at around 25MPG
The interior is a little date
Parts shouldnt be difficult to get, based on the c-rv, but some parts will be. haven't needed to, but dreading the moment.
Grey import only.

General Comments

Bought my 1997 Honda SMX a few days ago. Must say im very impressed with it. The driving position is high up, you get a great view of the road and oncoming traffic. The car turns loads of heads, I mean virtually everyone I drive past will have a quick look. One or two people have already been asking me questions about the car in petrol stations etc...



You could describe her as a Mini-MPV although I think it can only seat 4, not sure if there is a middle seat belt in the back.



IF YOU HAVE A CLOSE LOOK THEN YOU'LL SEE THERE'S NO REAR PASSENGER DOOR ON THE DRIVERS SIDE, THIS MEANS YOUR PASSENGERS OR KIDS HAVE TO EXIT THE CAR ONTO THE PAVEMENT........A CLEVER IDEA.



THE MILEAGE IS VERIFIED WITH A 'JUMVEA' CERTIFICATE, THIS ALSO WARRANTS THE CAR IS NOT STOLEN.



The autobox is superb and the engine is a 2000cc so she pulls well and is pretty quick



My Honda S-MX has Alloy Wheels, Colour Coded Bumpers, Chrome Coloured Mirrors, Rear Wash Wipe, Tinted Glass, Privacy Glass, ABS, Air Conditioning, Central Locking, Driver Airbag, Passenger Airbag, Electric Mirrors, Electric Windows, Power Assisted Steering.....etc



They also come with Tinted rear windows.



Mine has the orange interior, which is ok, but the stick on wood trim looks a bit naff.



For money this will prove a different and prudent choice, apart from the MPG which I think is low 20's from the 300 miles ocvered so far. I don't drive this wagon slow mind you, but mostly motorway miles have given me around 25MPG, so it's far from an economical motor.
